What if I have allergies and order catering?
Upon booking, we require a list of dietary requirements. We try our best to accommodate; however, this is not always possible. Due to the nature of food on grazing tables and platters being in close proximity to each other, cross contamination of food allergens can occur. Anyone with food allergies must refrain from consuming the food and take full responsibility if a reaction occurs by our services.
