Can we supply our own drinks?

Do we have to use your caterers?

Yes. To ensure the very highest standards, Pendrell Hall works exclusively with one of the most respected independent caterers in the UK.

At every stage, from planning your menu through to the perfectly timed and elegant service of your dishes on the big day, you can trust this professional and friendly team to guide and inspire you.

Can I supply whole rounds of cheese assembled as a wedding cake rather than cake?

Yes, provided that you discuss it in advance with our catering partners who will agree a price per head with you, for the service of this cheese and supply of any accompaniments such as crackers, breads and fruit. The cheese rounds must be whole and in sealed packaging upon delivery at Pendrell Hall on your wedding day.

Can we try the food?

Yes. You are given the opportunity to attend one of our Wedding Experience Events where you can try a number of dishes. Always a tremendous success, these events make it so much easier for you to go away and make decisions about what you want to serve at your Wedding Breakfast. Please visit our Food and Drink pages for further information. (Please be aware that where your Wedding Day falls within nine months of booking Pendrell Hall, it may not be possible to attend a Wedding Experience Event.)

What are The Bar prices like?

Can I supply the Evening Buffet?

No. To ensure the very highest standards in both culinary excellence and food hygiene, Pendrell Hall works exclusively with one of the most respected independent caterers in the UK. They are competitively priced and can offer advice on how to best cater for your evening guests.

Can we serve our own drinks in the evening?

No. Service of your own drinks ceases at the end of the Wedding Breakfast meal at which point The Bar opens. Any unopened bottles are returned to your designated area of our secure storage facility for collection the next day.
