Catering

Sharing fantastic food together is a unifying part of any wedding day, so we ensure that everything is exceptional. The Priory’s eminent head chef has created signature dishes so that you can compose a mouth-watering menu for your guests. Cooking for weddings is his speciality and while he presents suggestions for food throughout the day – arrival canapés, wedding breakfast and evening buffets – he does not limit himself to these options. Couples are free to make their own suggestions or discuss a private menu with chef, but whatever you choose, be assured that every dish will be delicious and beautifully served.

We also present informal main course choices, such as a buffet, hog roast or barbeque.
