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 or Column 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.

Let the banquet begin

Choose from tempting starters, mouth-watering main courses and sensational puddings for your wedding breakfast. The Hestercombe chefs use top quality ingredients (seasonal and local wherever possible) to cater for your individual tastes, and everything is made in-house. Pick and choose your perfect meal to complement your wedding day.
