We do. In high season our minimum spend is £97.50 per person for full day catering based on 100 guests. We do accommodate smaller numbers.

Then we will provide you with your dedicated coordinator who will be onsite from 0930am on the day through to c.10pm or after the first dance.

Do you cater for Vegans?

Absolutely! Chef, Jane Carnall is passionate about Vegan cuisine and we are preferred caterers to WWF (UK) in Woking which means our menu for them has to offer 50% vegan and 50% vegetarian. So yes!

Canapes followed by 'Big pan' menus (think Paella, Coq au vin, Thai curry) with the trimmings would probably be the most cost efficient menu to consider.
