Food and Beverage

Overview

We have a range of Food and Beverage options available to ensure your big day is catered to according to your needs and budget. We can also organise special menus incorporating culturally specific dishes, and table banquet options (shared platters to the tables). We are more than happy to tailor arrangements to suit, so please don't hesitate to ask us about a menu perfect for your big day. Please see below for our most popular wedding menus.

 

Beverages

We have a variety of beverage options available. These include several bar tab arrangements - with drinks chosen from our beverage list, or supplying some or all of your own.

Firstly, a full cash bar can be arranged so that guests are able to purchase whatever they would like from our beverage list.

You are welcome to run a bar tab for your guests. You can set a limit for this, or allocate a credit card to keep the tab running for the duration of your wedding.

Alternatively, there is the option to subsidise the drinks - so both you and the guests are making part payments. This too can have a pre-determined limit or be left open with a credit card to be paid at the end of the night.

Additionally, you could consider providing up to 3 cases of your own special sparkling wine. This is charged at $12/bottle and needs to be arranged alongside one of the above beverage options. This can be a great way to include your own personal selection for toasting, while also offering our great range of beer and wine.

We do also offer a Full BYO option. This is charged at $25/adult and $10 for Under 18s. This allows you the opportunity to create a beverage list specific to you. You will need to provide all of the non-alcoholic, and the alcoholic options, including spirits if you wish. We will chill, mix, and serve these for you.

Beverage Packages

Our beverage packages are also a great option. By choosing one of our packages; Silver, Gold or Platinum, you are paying a set price per head for all your guests to have all the drinks in the package list available to them for the specified time period. The advantage of this option is the pre-established price for all of your beverages.

  • Silver Drinks Package From $45/person
  • Gold Drinks Package From $58/person
  • Platinum Drinks Package From $65/person

Seated Meal Options

We offer both buffet and plated seated meal options, including a range of canapes. Our menus are flexible, and we will happily tailor these to suit your budget, dietary requirements or other needs. Do not hesitate to ask us about adding or removing options.

Our buffet menu gives you a wide range of salads, hot vegetables and meats. As the head table is served, guests are invited, by table, to our buffet to help themselves to the range of options. This gives the flexibility of allowing second helpings to guests, once everyone has been through. Our buffet menu also includes a large cheeseboard, and 3 sweet desserts.

  • Buffet Menu From $75/person

Our table banquet provides your guests with a shared meal experience having platters served to the table.

  • Table Banquet Menu From $80/person (details on request)

Our plated meal allows you the option of creating a Set Menu from our range of entrees, mains and desserts. On the evening, guests can choose their 3 course meal from your selections. Meals are served to the guests, at their table. We require you to provide the menu cards - this allows you to personalise them to work in with your theme.

  • Plated Menu From $85/person

Cocktail

As an alternative to a buffet or plated meal, you could consider a less formal, cocktail style wedding.

Our Cocktail menu includes a range of canapes and finger foods ranging from bite size to more substantial options. As all options are served to both standing and seated guests, this menu is suitable for more casual receptions where a full sit down dinner is not appropriate. We also have platter menus and carvery options which can be added in to ensure guests are well and truly catered for.
