• Deserts options are also available, such as our ‘Famous Trio of Desserts’, or a simple Chocolate Brownie & Ice Cream.

There is something suitable for everyone – let us know your requirements!

From £34
Evening food options A really popular option for £15 is our ‘Grazing Buffet’ with mini cones of fish and chips, chicken and chips and mini burgers with dipping sauces.

Also popular, and very simple, are our homemade floured bread buns with Suffolk smoked bacon, Broxtead sausages or a veggie option of roasted vegetable and halloumi cheese at £8 per person.

From £8

Complete drinks packages At £22, the most popular is the silver package, this includes:
• A glass of Prosecco, Pimms or still wine on arrival

With all receptions there will be some guests that would prefer a soft drink. We would recommend a sparkling pressé; Elderflower is always popular and pink lemonade goes down a storm with the children.
