Numbers for seated and stand-up events are all approximate and just an indication of numbers we can fit. Final numbers will depend on your individual requirements. In any case we will suggest the most fitting space for your event and cater for it accordingly.


Our functions co-ordinator will work closely with you and our chefs to cater for your event.
