Drinks For Your Day

We hope you like the look of our suggestions for your reception drinks, delicious wines for your feast, as well as our selection of fizzes for your speeches.

Included are some of the finest drinks produced in Devon, while the wines and fizz are carefully chosen by our wonderful local wine merchant, none of which can be found on supermarket shelves and all at sensible prices. If, however, there is something you would particularly like, not on our list, don’t hesitate to let us know.

We completely understand how important it is that your guests are not only well fed and but well watered too! With this in mind, based on a good number of years of experience, we have allowed for a realistic amount per head.

Once your numbers are confirmed, as part of our Planning Meetings, we will together agree your Drinks Order. If, in the unlikely event, your guests are much thirstier than anticipated and drink everything before the end of the reception or feast, then our Maître D will come to you to ask if you would like to extend your supplies. Have no fear, we have plenty in our stores.

On the flip side if there are any bottles left over you can choose to either offer them as complimentary drinks during the evening reception or take them home and stash them under the stairs!


All prices include VAT and Service.

Please note, pricing and availability may alter slightly over the coming years. We will of course let you know well in advance.

Supplying Your Own Day Drinks | £11/head

We completely understand you may prefer to buy in your own drinks for your reception, feast and toasts.  Please factor into your budget our £11/head (day guest only) fee which covers: taking delivery, handling, secure storage, unpacking, disposal of boxes and bottles, chilling, ice and garnishes for your drinks and finally . . . being served by our waiting staff. 

Our bar will look after all your evening reception drinks and can be run either as a licensed pay bar or we can keep a tab if you would like to offer complimentary evening drinks.  

Friday Suppers & Sunday Get Togethers

For Friday or Sunday gatherings we would be happy to add fizz, wine and non-alcoholic drinks to your Drinks Order.
