If you would prefer us to do these arrangements then it isn’t an issue

Can you supply examples of suggested menus along with prices?

One of the things we pride ourselves in is that we do not have set menus that you have to select from, like many venues have. We will sit down with you and discuss your likes and dislikes, and then our chef will come up with a bespoke menu for your own event.
