Food & Drink

Our philosophy is that it should look good and taste great using the freshest of local and artisan ingredients. Menus will vary according to your preferences and we are always be pleased to discuss your ideas.

We can seat up to 120 in one room, 160 between two gorgeous rooms and more again if need be. This may not be the regular set up but this is not your ordinary venue. We like to do the speeches before the meal in the garden or off the grand staircase so there is much greater flexibility PLUS you will be to able to relax and taste the food! Another option is a buffet style party, for 50+ or larger numbers, with free range seating – which might include sitting on the garden wall overlooking the lake.

During the meal you should work on ~1/2 bottle of wine (~25 euro/bottle) per person with food and 1/3 bottle of Prosecco (~39 euro/bottle). We have an extensive wine list although most like our house red and white for its quality and value. We also run the bar for you until carriages at 2am.
