Private Dining – at home or your chosen venue

Our private dinner parties are very popular, either held at The Butler’s Pantry in Mickleover (between 10-22 guests), at your home, or at external venues.  Whether you’re celebrating a milestone birthday, hen or stag party, anniversary or just a get together with friends and family, our events team will ensure that you don’t need to worry about anything, you just sit back and spend precious time with your guests.  If you are looking for a venue, we can recommend one to suit your occasion.  Call 01332 519007 for further details, or e-mail via our contacts page.

Pre-dinner canapés can be served if required
