This one-of-a-kind venue is popular for both enjoying an elegant dinner or a cocktail reception. It can also be used for wedding ceremonies. The Wine Cave is suitable for up to 32 people for dinner and may be able to seat more for a wedding reception.  Our Chef specialises in degustation menus for this stunning option.
