FOOD:

Some menu items may be changed to accommodate any diet requirements for your guests. This must be made clear when confirming your booking.

All platters are calculated to feed approximately 6-8 people. When determining the number of platters required for your booking, simply divide the total number of guests by 6. For example if you wish to have 100 guests, you would divide 100 by 6 giving you approximately 16 platters to be chosen from the list above.

BEVERAGE:

OPTION 1 – Cash Bar

This option enables your guest to purchase their own drinks from our extensive range of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages.

OPTION 2 – Bar Tab

This option gives the host control over how much they wish to spend. It enables the host to provide their guest with access to a range of beverages at no cost. This option allows the host to nominate the value of the tab and the type of beverages guest will be permitted to access on the tab. Once the tab has been reached or if the guests order drinks not provided on the tab a cash bar will be in place.
