Pop open the fizz

Enjoy a drinks reception on the Orangery Lawn or Victorian Terrace in warm weather. In wintertime or the event of rain (it brings luck on your wedding day!), the wood-panelled Dining Room is at your disposal.

Champagne, Pimms or even mulled cider – just tell us what you’d prefer and we’ll arrange it. Handmade canapés complete a stylish afternoon, with choices from tiny Yorkshire puddings with beef, bite-sized crab pots with a hint of chilli or even afternoon tea inspired minis for a twist. The choice is yours!
