We love hosting special events at The Kitchen. We have a team of dedicated professionals to make sure every event runs perfectly, whether it is a small intimate affair, a larger corporate event or a special birthday party. As with all events we host, we ensure our guests have a memorable experience – from fantastic food, impeccable service through to a chilled out vibe with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Last month we were delighted to welcome Volvo to The Kitchen and host them over 2 days. Volvo were training a large sales team on their new XC40 and they were test driving a range of other car makes and models – our car park was full of SUV cars including Audi, BMW and Volvo. It was a delight to also be shown inside the new XC40 and all that it has to offer.
We were contacted by Volvo about hosting this event as a member of their team had visited The Kitchen for lunch and thought it would be the perfect place to bring the team to – of course we were more than delighted to oblige.
What’s on the menu…
We are all about beautifully tasting, locally sourced, seasonal food. It’s what we do and who we are. We chatted to the team at Volvo about several different menu options and the food was decided upon.
On the menu was Cotswold Chicken with Bacon, served with Herb Mash, Winter Vegetables and Thyme & Red Wine Jus. As with all our meat, the chicken was sourced from Aubrey Allen, butchers to The Queen who have a commitment for ethical produce and delivering the very best quality and tasting meat. The winter veg was mainly sourced from our very own Kitchen Garden, picked fresh from the gardens that morning.
And the dessert…
The main course was followed by a the very delicious Chocolate Roulade with Almond & Raspberry Cream, topped off with an edible pansy from our garden. Seeing all 80 desserts lined up in our Kitchens was as pretty as a picture.
Our guests were not disappointed and The Kitchen was buzzing with happy chatter and beaming smiles.
Welcoming 160 people through the doors…
We welcomed 160 people through the door, catering for 80 people for lunch sittings per day. With two sittings over 2 hours, our brief was to deliver a main course and desert within a 50 minute turnaround for each sitting. We were able to do this all with ease, still allowing for our guests to enjoy the food, have a natter and view the surroundings – before setting off for another training session.
Available for private hire…
