Do I need to order my canapés?
No, canapés are served during the reception.

We do have a bar on the evening that accepts cash, credit and debit card, plus it is possible to set up a tab on the night.
How are the tables arranged?
Our tables seat between 8-12 people. Larger groups are accommodated over more than one table although you will only ever be seated with people in your party, we do not mix groups. We have a limited number of tables to seat groups of 14 which are allocated on request.
