Our Chefs Come From Michelin Starred Kitchens
Our chefs come from some of the UK’s top kitchens, and this Michelin starred background makes sure that the food served at your wedding is of an exceptionally high standard. And it’s not only the food which amazes, it’s the way your food is delivered. Knowledgeable serving staff serve a bespoke menu, specially designed with you and your partner. We are proud of the catering options we offer, and with previous feedback ranging from “to die for” to “an incredibly high standard”, we know our previous brides and grooms are too!
We Can Provide Just Food Too.
Our event planners are industry leading in their skill and the chefs behind our food are no different. We would proudly stand the quality of our food and menu against the highest quality restaurants and when this is combined with the right serving team, the results are phenomenal.

Is there a venue hire charge or does pricing work on a per person basis?
You will pay a venue hire fee direct to the venue owners in most cases. Bear in mind that this fee may vary depending on the date you decide on or the rooms you are using. It’s definitely worth speaking to a Dine Event Manager for advice.
Is there car parking at Dine’s venues? Is any of it free?
Due to the nature of our venues (which are situated on private land) you will usually find free parking on site. Most venues will allow you to leave cars overnight but they usually need to be collected by 10am the next day, so please ensure your guests are aware of this.
I have a disability. Which of the venues are accessible?
The Mansion has excellent disabled facilities but it is definitely worth speaking with your event manager about other specific venues or in some cases speaking to the owners directly to ensure they have everything you need.
Do any of Dine’s venues allow garden catering?
Where a venue has a garden, you can have some of your event outside. Our venues that are particularly suited to outside events are:
- Allerton Park
- The Lakeside at Carlton Towers
- The Walled Garden at Dalton Hall
- Newby Hall
- Wentworth Woodhouse
- Newburgh Priory
- Bolton Abbey

Can I bring my own entertainment like DJs or bands?
Yes, of course! We have our own in-house options but if you have found your own then in most cases there is a one-off charge of £100 + VAT.
Have you also seen about our alternative entertainment suggestions ?
Can I visit the venue when a wedding is on, to see what it looks like dressed up?
You can visit on the morning when the team is setting up the venue for the wedding, but not during someone else’s wedding.
Do any of the venues allow exclusive hire?
Nearly all of our venues are on an exclusive basis, meaning yours is the only wedding taking place that day at the venue. Some venues have churches on the estate or have other venues within the estate or in close proximity, which is worth bearing in mind.
You’ll find the venues where there is not a single other person or member of the public in view will have the highest hire fees, so do consider exactly what level of exclusivity you’re after.
If accommodation at the venue is limited or not available, where would wedding guests stay?
We have friendly links with local hotels who are used to looking after our guests and can provide an efficient booking service. If you speak to your event manager they can give you some recommendations for each local area.
A useful thing to remember when sending out your invitations is to include several hotel options at different price ranges – which has a greater chance of keeping all your guests happy!
