Your perfect wedding breakfast

We understand how important food is and so once you’ve confirmed your booking at Gilwell Park, we’ll arrange a time that’s convenient for you to meet our Wedding Coordinator. We’ll take you through the options and arrange a wedding tasting to ensure sure you’re 100% happy with your menu choices before the big day.

 

As part of the wedding tasting we can also talk to you in detail about our drinks offer. From lagers and craft beers to a fine selection of wines, spirits and champagne, we cater for all tastes.

Gilwell Park has an experienced team of in-house chefs who are completely focused on ensuring every dish is cooked to perfection.

Our team have worked hard to produce a range of  delicious menu choices from canapés to barbecues, formal dining to freshly baked sweet treats for your special day. 

We also cater for vegetarians and other dietary requirements.

'Just to say a special thank you to your chef who was there serving the BBQ. Me and Zoey both noted how attentive the chef was, especially during the BBQ and breakfast. He went above and beyond to make sure all dietary requirements were sorted and that everyone had loads to eat – we all felt really well looked after so a big thank you to him for that, it really made a big difference.'

Thank you so much for all your help and advice in the run up to our big day. A huge thank you to Christine and all the staff who were there on the day and helped things run so smoothly and effortlessly. Our guests had nothing but praise for all the staff. Especially my Dad who nipped out part way through our meal to thank Christine and leave a huge tip for all the staff!! The staff on the day helped the wedding and reception run perfectly. From setting up the Swan centre to bringing our drinks reception outside as the sun came out. We especially want to thank the serving staff and bar staff from the day who worked really hard serving our food, keeping our water jugs topped up and generally looking after Colin and I as well as all our guests. We have received great feedback on the food. Guests thought the lamb shank was delicious and were really impressed with the quality and presentation. The same was said for our evening buffet. Thank you to all the chefs and catering staff. We appreciated all your efforts.

Very nice situation, the box hedges are looking good and the raised beds with Spring bulbs are nice and bright. This looks a very nice place for a wedding or other special celebration as it has pleasant grounds for your memories and photo album. Good selection for breakfast, your choice little or large.
