Catering at our Pavilion is usually only available for a minimum number of people, depending on the event. We are, though, flexible.

The quality of our catering depends on every event being planned separately, so once food has been ordered, numbers agreed prior to this will be charged for. If we are not informed of extra guests, we can't be responsible for shortages of food at the event.

We require confirmation of numbers 14 days before the date of any booking, along with the agreed fees.


When a booking is confirmed we arrange staff and kitchen time for that function, therefore cancellation charges apply. The minimum amount is 20%. This will increase to 50% within 2 weeks of the event and 100% within a week.


This can be discussed when your planned event is discussed. Final payment is required, unless agreed prior to event, 14 days before the function.
