We can cater for all dietary requirements - just let us know and we’ll make it happen! If you’d rather discuss a bespoke menu tailored to your event theme and guests - then we’d love to discuss that with you!

 A Note On Dietary Requirements

At The Mowbray and The Chimney House we do our best to cater for any allergies or dietary requirements. In order to do this we ask that you provide full and thorough information in advance of your event.

When compiling this information please ensure your guests provide accurate information about their dietary needs. We need to know whether it is a severe allergy, a medical requirement or a preference so that we can make suitable adjustments. We may not provide a similar alternative where it is a preference, unless this can be catered for within the menu (see 'Plain Food' below). We will presume any dietary information given is correct and take it at face value.

A few comments from some of our recent couples, and more testimonials HERE

“Thank you to Lucy and the team at the Chimney House and The Mowbray, from start to finish they were simply wonderful to work with and made planning a wedding from the opposite side of the world so much easier. The venues themselves are absolutely stunning and the perfect backdrop for the best day of your life.
Every mouthful of food, from the fist canape right through to our booze busters at 9pm was scrumptious, I wish I could eat it all again. The only thing that would have made our day even better, is if we could stop time and do it all over again.”

Nicola & Philip

“Having our wedding celebrations at The Chimney House was quite literally the best decision we've ever made.”

Lorna & John.

“We had always wanted a small ceremony and The Chimney House was perfect for this. Since the very beginning of our journey the whole team were incredible, offering us advice and support throughout. We had absolute confidence in the guys and they did not disappoint on the day.
All of our guests have commented on what a beautiful, intimate ceremony and meal it was and we feel truly honoured to have been hosted by The Chimney House. There is not a single thing that we would change about the day, which is surely the way it should be?! We will forever remember our day and still do not have words to describe our thanks to The Chimney House.” 

Heather & Gav

We’d love to help you with the smallest of details to make your wedding amazing! 

All best wishes,

The Chimney House Team
