The White Swan
The White Swan has been hosting wedding receptions since 2003 and we are very proud to say that each and every event has been a tremendous success for the happy couple and their guests. In part, this is due to careful planning and attention to detail which is paramount to us at all times. We are determined to ensure that your important day will be a resounding success too.CAPACITY
For a seated, three course ‘wedding breakfast’, we can seat 52 people in the Dining Room on the first floor. Alternatively, we can accommodate up to 150 people across both floors for a standing reception with canapés and a buffet. Often we will host a seated ‘wedding breakfast’ in the Dining Room during the afternoon for about 50 people which will then be followed by a party in the pub when up to another 100 guests will arrive for the evening celebrations.
MENUS and WINE LIST
We can arrange for a seated wedding or buffet reception along with standing canapé and bowl food. If you do decide to have your wedding reception at The White Swan, we will arrange a menu and wine tasting with you, long in advance of the day.
In terms of music, we have vinyl and CD decks in-house and we can help arrange a DJ of your choice. There is a small charge of £75 (+ VAT) for the use of the vinyl decks and £150 (+ VAT) for the CD decks. Alternatively you are welcome to bring your own IPOD or CDs and we can play these through our system. We will be happy to discuss other forms of live entertainment such as magicians, comedians, jugglers, fire performers, stilt walkers, live percussionists, harpists, string quartets…
