Conference Catering

We understand that your delegates will need to stay refreshed and nourished throughout the day when attending a conference or meeting. That’s why we can provide a number of food options for your corporate event.

Opt for a sit-down dinner or choose a buffet-style lunch bought straight to your meeting room. If you would rather take a break from your hired room altogether, then you can join us in our restaurant in Staffordshire.

Private Dining for Association Groups

Whether you’re looking for a sit-down private dining meal after your AGM meeting, want to host your sports associations annual awards night or are looking to host a black-tie charity event, we have the capacity to turn our function rooms into beautiful private dining rooms.

Work with our chefs to create a bespoke 3-course menu and start your association group celebrations. Get in touch with us if you have any dietary requirements.
