We have some guests with dietary requirements, can you cater for them?

Yes of course! Our Chefs can adapt your menu to suit your guests with dietary requirements or offer an alternative option. We ask for details of all guests with dietary requirements in advance of your wedding day so that we can make sure they are properly catered for. It must be noted however that we are not a nut free kitchen, and so our kitchen will contain traces of nuts at all times.
