Your Food

Our informal party menu includes 4 bowls and 2 dessert canapés where we recommend selecting fish, meat and vegetarian options. In our experience, this is a substantial menu for a party finishing at midnight. However, for parties finishing later than this, it is a good idea to also provide a late night snack.

Your Drinks

An unlimited house wine, beer (Beck’s) and soft drinks (Coke, Diet Coke, lemonade, cranberry juice, orange juice, still and sparkling water) package is included as part of your party quote. This allows for you to budget pre-event and, on the evening, focus on your guests and not worry about consumption levels. You will find a number of enhancements below to add your own touch to the party.

New World
Aires Andinos Sauvignon Blanc
The Mendoza region is Argentina’s most important wine growing region. Concentrated aromas of zesty grapefruit, pineapple and lime with hints of passion fruit and a crisp, dry finish

Old World
Alfredini Garganega Pinot Grigio
From the esteemed Veneto region of Italy arrives this dry white which boasts floral notes on the nose, supported on the palate by lemon fruit flavours and a delicate nuttiness

New World
Five Foot Track Shiraz

A medium weight red, with a pleasing balance between ripe fruit and savoury, earthy notes on the nose. The palate is succulent and mouth-filling, with lashings of red berry and brambles

Old World
Côtes du Rhône Les Galets

Showing gorgeous, succulent notes of red and black berry fruit flavours and a warming hint of spiciness. Soft and supple tannins contribute to a long and rounded finish

Please choose one white and one red from the unlimited package

Premium wines are available as part of your package from an additional £10 + VAT per person. Please see full wine list for choices

If you would prefer not to take the unlimited drinks package, drinks are available on a consumption basis option. £20 will be deducted from the cost per person on the quote.
