Food & Drink

Tuck in!

We all know that food is a big part of an event so we don't do it half-heartedly. We offer an appetising three-course menu prepared by our chef, with a wide selection to choose from, so you and your guests can enjoy something yummy to tuck into. We also offer two buffet options in case you start to get a little peckish towards the end of the night. Or if you'd rather, this can be an alternative option to our sit-down menu. And to put the cherry on top of the cake, we have a full drinks menu to go alongside your delicious food.

What's a party without entertainment?

We want your wedding or event to go out with a bang! Our Spinnaker Lounge has a large dance floor with a stage so there will be room for a DJ to be playing all the tunes to keep your night going.
