Do you insist on doing all the catering in-house or are there other options?
The catering at Rudby Hall is provided by our exclusive partner, Coghlans. However, we can vet your preferred caterer with a facilitating charge.
Do you cater for different styles of menu such as sit down silver service, buffet, family service, hog roast or BBQ?
Yes, providing food is not served outdoors. Tailor-made fine dining, depending on your preferences, will be created by Coghlans.
Can we see photographs of the Drawing Room set up and dressed?
Yes, photographs are available upon request. Alternatively, visit our Gallery or social media pages.
Is it possible to see the tables, chairs, linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware that would be used?
Yes, our House Butler will show you at your tasting or by separate arrangement.
Can we hire in alternative linen, crockery, glassware, cutlery and/or chairs?
Yes, Rudby Hall is happy to recommend a supplier if required.
Do you provide a cake table, stand and knife?
Do you provide an easel on which we can display our table plan?
Do you supply table number/name stands for the dining tables?
Ideally they should be provided by yourself.
Is there a bar for drinks to be served from or will drinks be served from trays (or both)?
Both, dependent upon the nature of the event and your personal preference.
Is the bar fully stocked or can drinks be brought in by clients?
The bar is fully stocked, staffed and managed by Coghlans. If you have any particular requirements we will do our best to ensure they are fulfilled. We do not permit clients or their guests to consume drinks which they have brought into the house themselves whilst the bar is open.
Do you insist on supplying drinks packages or can we pay corkage and supply our own drinks ?
We offer a range of drinks to suit most tastes, besides which we also offer you the option of supplying your own wine, subject to a corkage fee of £20 per bottle which covers the cost associated with the provision of glassware, storing, chilling and serving the drinks.
Besides breakfast for overnight guests, can you cater for dinner the night before and/or a brunch the day following an event?
Yes. Coghlans would be delighted to discuss these options with you. There would be an additional cost.
