At The Riding School we are a no corkage venue!! This meaning that you are more than welcome to provide your own table wine and toast drinks. Once your wedding breakfast has finished and you are ready to party, we will take away anything that isn’t open ready for you to collect the following day.

We will work with you to advise you on the amount drink you will need based on your guest numbers. This is a free service we offer. Some people find this a little stressful so you may opt for a drinks package instead.

When it comes to refreshments, we don’t believe that there is a ‘one size fits all’. We are proud to be able to offer a completely bespoke package that allows you to tailor the drinks that best suit your day so, whether you choose, fizz or cocktails, a barrow full of beer or milkshakes we will make sure it is special for all your guests.
