We will have between 2-3 bar tenders behind the bar to keep the drinks flowing throughout the day. The Irnham bar will supply all drinks and glassware throughout the event – to include one wine glass and one water glass per table setting and one champagne glass per person for the toast.
The catering team will be in charge of setting out wine and water glasses when they lay the tables, serving welcome drinks, wine at the table if you wish and handing out toast champagne. They will collect glasses through the evening away from the bar.

We will have the same drinks available as we currently serve in our pub The Griffin Inn. If you would like something different we will do our best to accommodate special requests
including guest ales, please ask Jamie for any specific costs and refer to the drinks price list.

As early as you can please let the team have an idea of your numbers. Closer to your date we will need to know what time your church service or civil ceremony is, how many guests you
are having, how many evening guests (if any) and what time they will arrive.
What drinks package you would like, whether you are purchasing any future table wine and which bar option you are going for. It would also be helpful to know which caterer you are
using, what time you are sitting down to eat and when you are having your speeches. This is very important. If you decide to have speeches first we’ll need extra staff. Please note, we
do not provide complimentary drinks to any or your supplier unless previously agreed.
