HOT AND COLD BUFFET

Buffets might feel a bit old school, but we think they are a great way to serve your hungry guests, giving them a visual feast with plenty of choice and the option to eat as much or as little as they like! Depending on your numbers, we often set up more than one buffet and limit queues by inviting the tables up in turn. Don’t forget to ask if your favourite dish needs adding – if it’s doable, we’ll do it!

Choose 3 mains and 4 accompaniments and as always, we will cater in addition for those with dietary requirements. All buffets are served with speciality breads.
