Food & Drink
You needn’t worry about a thing, our professional “in-house” wedding team will step into the role of catering seamlessly to your every need.
Wedding Food, Drink and Menus
Send your wedding guests home full (and full of compliments) with our delectable food and drink options. From canapes to street food, signature drink ideas, to served courses at a seated dinner, let us help you plan the best wedding menu for you.
When choosing Rowton Castle as your wedding venue, you needn’t worry about the procurement of caterers. Your food for the day will be prepared by our brigade of “in-house” chefs and served by our delightful food and beverage team whom will look after you and your guests professionally and seamlessly.
The menus from which you may choose to have been carefully designed by Head Chef Jordan, and award-winning chef-owner Steve Parke using only the freshest of produce and delights from the local area. The wishes of our couples have been answered with the most wonderful dishes, and with items to suit all tastes and budgets, you are guaranteed a show stopping centrepiece and a talking point for all guests, whatever you choose.
From a point of practicality, included within the venue hire are tables, chairs, cutlery, crockery, glassware and table linen. We provide round tables at Rowton Castle that can seat up to 12 people to a table.
Garden Bar + Kitchen
From afternoon and into early evening, what better place to become acquainted with friends, both old and new, than in the castle gardens, at your very own whimsical garden party where all will enjoy a wondrous occasion. It started with an idea to create something different, a magical garden for food and drink.
Bar. 97 is the most perfect blend of elegance (that of a bygone era) and modern-day charm. It can be found surrounded by beautiful gardens, nestled against the castle wall. Imagine string lighting, cosy seating and an industrial inspired décor.
Bar. 97 bids a concept like no other, offering a selection of botanical gin cocktails, interesting craft beers, champagne and prosecco for the most discerning of guests. Share in an extraordinary atmosphere and create memories that will last a lifetime. With extras, such as blankets and heaters, you and your guests will stay warm as the sun goes down.
The Terrace Grill is Bar. 97’s ultimate pairing. Think dishes inspired by street food vendors. It’s feel good, it’s theatre, and the flavour combinations are incredible to boot. Tastes on offer include Posh Dogs, Mac & Cheese, BBQ and Paella.
For now, The Terrace Grill and our street food inspired dishes have been fashioned with evening catering in mind; but it is our hope to extend this informal dining to those who wish to forgo a formal wedding breakfast – we’ll keep you posted!
Bar. 97 and The Terrace Grill are available during British Summer Time only.
Wedding Experience Events
Deciding what to feed your guests can be fun! and we say that from experience. Throughout the year we have evenings that are designated as “Wedding Experience Events”. These are intended to give both prospective couples and those who have booked an opportunity to taste some of the exqusite dishes, sample our signature drinks and get a feel for the level of service that is to be expected on the wedding day itself; all whilst enojying a delicious meal made all the better by a wonderful ambience.
Our wedding experience events are always a tremendous success, and make it so much easier for you to make an informed decision about what you would like to serve at your wedding breakfast.
Together with lots of ideas and clear pricing, our menus are available by request or following a viewing of Rowton Castle. If you’re wondering whether there’s a children’s menu or how to handle your guests’ dietary requirements, please do not worry - all of this will be covered on your first visit to Rowton Castle and with guideance throughout the planning process.
