EAT. DRINK. BE MARRIED
Your big day is all about saying "I do", but we firmly believe that it's also an fantastic opportunity for you to show your nearest and dearest who you are. And what better way to do that than with some amazing food and drink? Gorcott Hall is utterly committed to providing you the ultimate in choice and quality. No compromises and no short cuts. We work incredibly hard with our catering team, our food and drink suppliers to provide best in class. We always use local suppliers where practical. Remember, you're in charge of the menu design. Working closely with our head chef, you'll get to design a bespoke menu for the entire day - from canapés through to late night snacks, and the wine we serve with your wedding breakfast - you're in control.
THE TASTING SESSION
Once you and chef have settled on some ideas for your wedding breakfast, we'll invite you over for a relaxed and intimate tasting session. We'll serve you up your chosen selection of each course. You'll get to sample from our fantastic selection of quality wines. Oh, and the bar is open but the tills are closed! Treat it as a pre-wedding date!

THE AFTERNOON RECEPTION
Relax! You're married!
Time now to meet and greet all those who mean the most to you. We'll serve everyone a welcome drink; feel free to express yourselves here, if you've got a cocktail which is special to you, we'll happily do all the research to get them just perfect and wow your guests.
Choose from our fabulous choice of canapés - if the weather is kind we'll serve these in our manicured gardens. Our amazing sound system will provide the soundtrack to your afternoon, with the playlist chosen by you if that's your thing.
Plenty of time to enjoy the scenery while getting those all important group shots out of the way. Our bar will be open (outside if the weather lets us), and you can set up some garden games to keep the little ones (and the young at heart) occupied.
TO THE BARN
After a relaxed afternoon meeting your nearest and dearest for the first time as a married couple, it's time to get your guests seated for the in our spectacular Wedding Barn. With exposed brickwork and original oak beams, this is rustic splendour at it's finest. The tables will be perfectly laid - all glassware, crockery, linen and charger plates come as standard. We'll introduce you into the room to a cacophony of cheering and applause and the song of your choice.
After the wedding breakfast, it's time for those oh so important speeches. We'll charge everybody's glass, and introduce each speechmaker for you. We'll have planned the timings meticulously in advance, so that there's no lull in proceedings between the speeches and the beginning of the evening party. Feel the barn come alive as the sun goes down and the energy levels go up!
Our fantastic, fully stocked bar is in the barn. Perfectly poured draught beers from the likes of Birra Moretti, Beavertown Neckoil, Inch's Cider and Amstel will help quench the inevitable thirst. We're passionate about keeping our prices sensible too - you'll be surprised and delighted to know that our bar tariff is more like your local pub than a typical wedding venue!
