Please Note: Due to a planned power cut the Castle will be closed all day on Tuesday 5th March. We apologise for any inconvenience but we are unable to operate without electricity and the power cut is to enable Northern Power Grid to carry out essential maintenance to avoid any unplanned power cuts in future.

We will reopen as normal at 10am on Wednesday 6th March.

Wedding Breakfast Menus
Our menus have been designed and are provided by a local Chef Guy Fairhurst who has exceptional experience in delivering high quality food and standards of service.

Our menus provide fantastic value for a variety of budgets and range from a traditional local Hog Roast or cold buffet to a gastronomic feast of canapés followed by a four course meal – or more if you like.

Wherever possible we use locally sourced ingredients.

The following menus are designed to give you some idea of our most popular dishes, however we will always be delighted to work with you to create your perfect wedding breakfast.

Prices start from £25.00 per head and always include tableware, crockery, staffing and VAT @ 20%

Our menus are designed to give you a sample of what Guy can offer but if you have a specific dish or course in mind Guy is happy to discuss this with you to create your perfect menu.
