From seafood and vegetarian sushi, buffet lunches and bacon rolls to fine dining, Whittlebury Park’s Food & Beverage team, along with their Event Planners, can create individual menus using local ingredients to leave a lasting impression for corporate clients. All food is made from scratch in-house and Whittlebury can cater for up to 3,000 delegates. The commitment to give guests bespoke elements to suit their needs is what makes an event at Whittlebury ideal for groups big and small.
There is now a plethora of different dietary variations and requests, which can not only make an event organiser’s job time consuming to coordinate but also potentially create concern as to whether the needs of their delegates will be met. This is where attention to detail becomes crucial, and something that not all venues can guarantee, but Whittlebury’s personal level of service ensures that individual requests are always catered for. There’s no denying that the awareness surrounding how food can impact upon good we feel is on the increase, and when clients book a day conference, they can choose their own menus to be served as part of morning or afternoon break times, lunches or dinners. Food served for delegates can be both hot and cold from an informal buffet set-up to a sit-down menu. Not to forget, there is always (of course) options to treat teams to homemade cakes in the afternoon.
For the ultimate personalised experience for groups, a pre-dinner drinks and canapés reception can be held in Bentley’s Lounge, allowing guests to all meet in a dedicated space. The Private Dining event for guests can then continue in the Grand Prix Suite which also has room for its own bar and dancefloor. The flexibility of rooms at Whittlebury means that table plans are tailored to each event according to numbers and the layout of the catering.
When you want to make a lasting impression, only the best food and overall dining experience will do. Whittlebury is the proud owner of two AA Rosettes for its fine dining restaurant, Murrays, which is located within the hotel itself. The inviting interior and innovative menu of modern British classics served with a twist are all created by their Head Chef, Harvey Lockwood, winner of Chef of the Year at the Northamptonshire Food & Drink Awards in 2018. The seasonal menu always includes local produce, dishes that are visually stunning, and combinations of ingredients that will really impress your guests.
Recognising the importance of food for well-being, Whittlebury is hosting a ‘Let’s talk nutrition for well-being’ Connect Event on Tuesday 18th June. This event is free to attend and Nutritionist guest speaker, Natalie Coghlan will be discussing how the food we choose can power the body and brain in a positive way. Attendees can expect to come away with new knowledge on how simple changes can have a positive effect on health both in and outside of work. The event will also give managers tips on how food can improve productivity and reduce sickness absence.
