Tasting Evening

When you book your wedding here at Lillibrooke Manor one of the many things you can look forward to is attending one of our complimentary taster evenings. For many, the food plays a huge part in the wedding planning and that’s why we give you the chance to come and see, taste and experience the quality of our food ahead of the big day.
But it’s not just about the food, you’ll also meet the events and catering teams, be inspired by the venue styling and suppliers and also meet other couples who are marrying with us.

Note that where you have booked at short notice (1 year or less) or where your date has been moved due to unforeseen circumstances, a tasting event may not be available for you to attend although we will try our best to provide one.
