Guide to Choosing your Wedding Menu

There’s so much to think about when you’re planning a wedding, so here at Lords of the Manor we’ve tried to make things a little easier. Here are some helpful tips for choosing your perfect wedding menu to wow your guests and feed their appetite.

Taste taste taste!

You want to make sure that everything served on your big day tastes absolutely divine, so get involved! Something that may sound amazing on paper, might not be your cup of tea at all, so make sure you get in and sample the dishes before you commit. Here at Lords of the Manor we offer a tasting for two to help you make that all important choice. Once you have whittled it down to a couple of dishes that you think you’ll love, we would be delighted to invite you to a complimentary tasting to allow you to ensure that you have three dishes that you absolutely love for your big day.


Make sure that your RSVPs include a question about allergies and dietary requirements. This is something you shouldn’t overlook – flag it up at the invitation stage so your guests have every chance to let you know. Here at Lords we are more than happy to cater for any guests with individual dietary requirements or allergies- we don’t want a stray hazelnut making a scene!

Meet your maker…

Meeting the Chef to make sure that they fully understand your needs and wishes can really help to put your mind at ease about your wedding menu. Our Head Chef, Richard Picard-Edwards, is always on hand to talk you through what will work best for your wedding. He knows how to make the most of seasonal ingredients to produce stunning results. As one of few Michelin-starred restaurants in the Cotswolds we strive to use only the best local and seasonal produce to create your perfect wedding menu.

Wine and dine

One way to ruin an amazing meal is terrible wine, but fear not! Our talented sommelier is here to save the day. Not many wedding venues in the Cotswolds have access to an incredible one thousand bin wine cellar, so Lords is sure to have the perfect match for your chosen menu. We have endeavoured throughout the years to forge connections with lots of incredible, independent, high quality producers. If you’re worried about the expense, don’t! We hold a wide range of wines (all exceptional quality) to suit all budgets.

And, breathe…!

Now that we’ve covered the essentials, you can relax! The team at Lords can take it from here. You’ve made all of the big decisions and now you can sit back and look forward to the most divine wedding feast at one of the finest Cotswold wedding venues.
