We are often asked to cater for these occasions when perhaps numbers or circumstances make it difficult to provide refreshments at home. Our staff are understanding and able to help guide you through the arrangements at what can be a difficult time.

Traditionally either a light buffet or afternoon tea with unlimited tea and coffee would be served in accordance with your wishes.
