We can provide your choice of reception drinks, wine for the meal and fizz for the speeches and toasts. We can even lay on special request kegs of ale, create unique gin bars or offer welcome drinks for guests joining you in the evening.
This is a bespoke service, so we will help you choose the perfect combination of options to match your theme, menu and budget. The cost for the main package is generally £15.00 – £20.00 per head (inc VAT), which includes three reception drinks, half a bottle of wine during the wedding breakfast and a glass of fizz for the toasts, representing very good value for money and the ability to budget early and precisely for one of your larger wedding items.
Another benefit of choosing our bespoke package service is that we can keep our licensed bar open throughout the day, an option not available if you provide your own drinks. This benefit includes providing a dedicated drinks manager for your wedding breakfast, making sure your guests can have any special requests they may want from the bar, served to them at their table during the meal. It also allows for us to provide wine reserves so your white to red ratio is properly balanced throughout the meal at no additional cost and accommodates for your guests’ preferences.
With much experience in weddings, our drinks packages are perfectly tailored to your guest numbers, ensuring you aren’t overspending on reception drinks or wine you don’t end up using. Any leftover wine is distributed from the bar even after your meal ends, a welcome gesture for those arriving in the evening. The Stable Bar finds the perfect balance for you, allowing you to spoil your guests at an affordable price and always with a friendly smile.
