Innovative ideas, delectable food, impeccable service

We have achieved this by focusing on three crucial areas - our ingredients, kitchen and service. We carefully select the best ingredients from the wealth of fine produce that we find around us in Herefordshire.

Our lead chefs, Billy and Gabor combine Michelin-starred flair with vast event catering experience. Our event leaders and Front of House teams pay great attention to detail to deliver happy occasions with enthusiasm and a sense of fun. In short you will find something pleasingly different at every stage of your event from first contact to conclusion.

Winter Wedding at Brinsop Court

Sarah and Ben got married in February 2019 at the stunning Brinsop Court. It was a day full of fun and we served the perfect menu for a glorious winter day. We are thrilled to share some photos of the day taken by Marta May, along with an interview with the couple themselves.
