We will take care of every detail, allowing you to relax and focus on enjoying one of the happiest days of your life.

We expected a high standard of service, but to be treated like we were really took it to another level.  The precise and close eye kept on staff during the wedding breakfast and marking off what has been given truly shows the attention to detail and level of service not short of royalty.

Each and every one of our menus is designed by our Head chef to the Knowsley Estate. We understand the importance of fine food, which is why the Earl and Countess of Derby personally taste every dish before being included in our menus. Feel free to talk to our chef at any time, as we want to make every step of your day perfect, from beginning to end.
