Private Dinner Party

Perfect for up to 44 people.

Our private dining menus are created using some of the best of Hampshire’s suppliers. Our set menus start from £19.95 per person for 2 courses or £24.95 per person for 3 courses.

Gluten free, food allergies? No problem, we can tailor our menu and look after this and much more so you can just concentrate on having a good time.

Menus from £19.95 per person.

Drinks and Canapé Evening

Perfect for up to 70 people.

We offer two different types of canapé evenings. Our substantial and our light canapé evening. The substantial canapé evening works like a 3 course meal with starter canapés, main canapés and dessert canapés and is perfect for those of you who wanted the private dining option but would like to invite more guests or who like the idea of the private dining option but want something where your guests can mingle a bit more.

Our team will be on hand to look after you and your guests all evening, topping up drinks and making sure everyone has the chance to taste our amazing canapés.

Canapé selection starts from £7.95 per person


Perfect for up to 50 people.

The most informal out of all our event offerings. Our buffet option still doesn’t compromise on quality with all of the food freshly prepared and cooked to order, which is then laid out beautifully for you and your guests to help yourselves to.

Buffet option starts from £14.95 per person.

Bespoke Event

Let’s plan your perfect party! We will help you to create your perfect evening and talk you through your options. We can help with anything from arrival drinks, canapés, bespoke set menus, decorations or even helping to source a particular menu or drinks request.


Not to worry we are fully licensed and have a delicious selection of wines from Berry Brothers as well as beers, spirits and soft drinks.

The drinks can either be pre-ordered for the evening with one of our drinks packages. Or you can order on the night from a smaller drinks list which would be put on a one tab to be paid for at the end of the night. We also can provide a bar service where your guests can order and pay individually at the bar.
