A Note on our Menus

All of our menus are prepared in-house by our amazing chef team! Everything is baked and made fresh from our bread, cakes, cookies and desserts and we pickle, cure, roast and toast the finest ingredients from Sheffield and Yorkshire. 

We work 100% seasonally so sometimes we will need to swop ingredients out for what is best and fresh - we’ll let you know if we need to tweak your chosen menu ahead of your event. 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! 

We love to use as much inspiration from The Chimney House and our sister venue The Mowbray as we can - so you’ll often see ingredients from our garden featuring in our menus!

Our cheese courses are a BRILLIANT choice if you need to choose a second dessert! They can also be added to your menu for £6pp ex VAT. We’ll serve your cheese course with biscuits. Choose one option from below

Creamy Yorkshire Blue with Toasted Walnuts & Wildflower Honey

About this cheese: A mild & creamy blue cheese, made from Yorkshire Cow’s Milk by the girls at Shepherd’s Purse in North Yorkshire.

Mowbray-made Ricotta with Sweet Pickled Cherries

Our house-made ricotta is made from milk & cream, and hung overnight at The Mowbray to produce a deliciously creamy soft cheese. Our cherries are pickled with sweet wine, thyme & star anise.

Tunworth & Roasted Grapes

Hampshire’s answer to Camembert, and don’t tell the French, but we think it’s even better. This cheese is still lovingly made by hand and offers a long lasting sweet & nutty flavour. The roasted grapes help to cut through the richness.

*please note the cheese course must be taken by the whole party

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 the best
