Chris Birch, Head Chef 

Frensham Heights' Head Chef, Chris Birch, has years of experience running a kitchen and catering for a vast array of events, from banquets and buffets to intimate dinners and soirées.
 
He is passionate about creating menus tailored to the individual couple, working within your budget to develop the right meals to fit the occasion. He will discuss your ideas with you and, where possible, base their suggestions on what is in season and available through local suppliers. On the day itself, our team of trained waiting staff will professionally and unobtrusively ensure the smooth delivery of your meal.
 
We also have an extensive selection of wines available to order - or you are welcome to provide your own.


Wedding Breakfast

You can create your own menu, from the options below, for which there is a set charge for three courses and coffee of £55 (including VAT), or you can ask us for your own favourites and we will provide you with a quotation.

Please note we make a minimum charge for 85 adult meals. Children may choose from a separate menu or under 16s may have a half portion of the wedding breakfast, which will be charged at half the adult rate.

If you would like to have canapés served before the meal just let us know. Costs start at £10 per head for five canapés per person, when you opt for a full wedding package. You may choose to have canapés served with your reception drink, instead of a starter served at the table.

“All faultless – and I’m fussy!”

The standard of service on the wedding day was way above expectation. It was excellent all round. We could not fault it. We will always recommend it as an excellent venue
