What information is needed in preparing a quotation?
Please inform us of your function date, location, approximate guest count, occasion, time frame, preferred menu, and style of service. This will help us in preparing initial event plan.
Do you do site inspections?
We want to fully understand the logistics involved. We will schedule an onsite meeting at your convenience.
Do you do tastings?
We do tastings for larger functions and prefer to schedule them approximately two to three months before the function date.
Can you help us in planning some of the other aspects of our function?
It would be our pleasure to help you with bar lists, décor and floral suggestions, room layout and set up as well as referring photographers, videographers, graphic artists , calligraphers, musicians etc…
Do you sponsor or donate food for non profit organizations ?
A large portion of our work is for voluntary and cultural organizations. We know how to plan carefully when budgets are modest and can work at discounted rates to create tastefully appropriate events.
Can you cater a wedding at our cottage?
It would be our pleasure to assist you in planning this joyous occasion. We will work on a plan taking into account logistical considerations. We have worked on many out of town events.
Can we supply some of the food at the function?
This can add a layer of complication so generally it’s not something we favour. Exceptions can be made for desserts or various items made by the host.
What is the protocol on tipping servers and bartenders?
Gratuities are discretionary, however it’s common practice to tip the wait and bar staff at the end of a function. We can offer suggestions for your particular event.
