If you don’t want to take everyone back to your Loved One’s or your own home after a funeral, whether you are providing catering yourself, or requesting a “lay and leave” home service from caterers, then consider venues who will provide food and drink for yourselves and your guests. Starting from £12+ per head with a minimum of 10 is not unusual to be quoted for a basic finger buffet menu including tea and coffee.
Thinking about these questions is useful before approaching venues:
Do I want sole use of a room or venue, or satisfied with the use of an area within a larger area (useful if a smaller gathering)?
Can people find it easily and is there plenty of parking?
What sort of food would I prefer?
Do I want a finger buffet or a sit down meal?
Do I want to include tea, coffee and alcoholic drinks?
Do I need waiter service to help with older and disabled people?
Is there good step-free access for older and disabled people, including adapted toilets?
