We can either provide as smaller portion of the main wedding breakfast for a reduced price or we can also provide their own menu which will again be created during your meeting with the caterers. If you have a large number of children we can also arrange for them to have their own tea party in the Redbrick Barn complete with a wedding Creche service if required. (www.ciccionas.com)
Q. Should we provide our contractors with a meal?
Please check with your contractors terms and conditions to see if you need to provide them with food and drink, it's not unusual for us to provide your contractors such as photographers/ musicians with a hot meal, which is eaten in the Lounge Bar for a reduced price as they will be with you all day. Bands will normally eat from the evening food options.
Q. What options are there for evening food?
There is an extensive selection of evening food available from circulated 'street style' bowl food and hot savoury snacks; pizzas, fish and chips from £8.00pp to barbecues from £12.00pp and cheese and pate tables. We hate queuing, so circulated snacks are a great choice!! These options are developed and designed with you, incorporating any themes or ideas you may have. Similarly if you want to have half circulated bowl food and a smaller cheese table we can definitely come up with something special.
Q. Can we try the food before our wedding day?
Yes, we hold food tastings at the Barns normally at times to suit in the spring, autumn and winter seasons arranged though Morgans Catering. These carry a small charge for a minimum of four guests and are a lovely opportunity to try all three courses of your chosen Wedding Breakfast, giving you freedom to try the different ideas you may have had and make any changes. The food tasting gives you loads of confidence in the quality of the food you will have on your wedding day.
