Private dining at elegant Cotswold venuePosted on
Sometimes events can be big and lavish, but other times they can be small and intimate – and that’s just as nice. In fact, it’s a lovely change from large busy weddings and corporate bashes, to cater for a smaller private dining event, where guests can chat, laugh and enjoy food and drink together. This event was held in a beautiful and unique venue near Stroud.

It was such a pleasure to cater for Natalie and her friends. Woodchester House is a beautiful and unique venue, and one not many people hear about – we would highly recommend checking it out for private parties and weddings.
