The Wedding Breakfast

Our philosophy is that it should look good and taste great. We prepare in-house using the freshest of local ingredients.

Our menus are different, we are conscious of our setting in everything we do. We can cater a sit down Wedding Banquet for up to 120 seated in one room, 160 between two gorgeous rooms, or a Seasonal Buffet for up to ~250 guests.

The meal is served in our beautiful dining room overlooking the terraced lawn by our team of discreet local servers.

Menus will vary according to your preferences and we are always pleased to discuss your ideas. We are also pleased to cater for special diets with advance notice.

Browse the following. The only variation is Sit-down versus Buffet.

During the meal you should work on ~1/2 bottle of wine (22 euro) per person with food and 1/3 bottle of Prosecco (28 euro). We have an extensive wine list although most like our house red and white for its quality and value.  We also set up the bar for you which is usually manned until carriages at 2am.
