Thinking of a less formal approach to your wedding reception?

With a Red Carpet Welcome, our BBQ & Garden Wedding Packages have been designed to provide an informal reception in a relaxed atmosphere with a delicious BBQ or Hog Roast in the garden yet still give your special day the WOW factor! 

The Garden Suite is perfect for weddings of between 50 & 200 guests and benefits from doors which open onto the terrace area, so if the weather is fine you can take your party al fresco! During the warmer months the terrace and garden makes a beautiful area for a BBQ or Hog Roast outdoor party.

The BBQ breakfast is served to the top table and then we welcome your guests up table by table to be served buffet style or we can serve platters to each individual table. We are very flexible & will work with you on all aspects to help make your day a memorable one.

We are now licenced to hold your Wedding Ceremony outside in our gardens - please ask us for more details
