Evening Food

Here at The West Mill we’re committed to offering you the flexibility to choose exciting food for your evening wedding reception which reflects your individual personalities as well as your budget.

Tasty Bites

After celebrations are well underway and your evening guests arrive, it can be we fabulous welcome to offer your guests a little something to eat, many of your daytime guests (having enjoyed a few drinks!) also appreciate a tasty and satisfying sugar fix come the evening.

Tempting Options

Although we don’t force any set ideas upon you, we do have plenty of great ideas and suggestions to make your evening wedding reception food simply fantastic; with a range of tempting evening options available from just £5.95 per person (all our published prices include VAT)  we’re confident that together we’ll create an unforgettable and imaginative evening menu.

Satisfying Mini Meals – Bowl Food

Our Bowl Food menus, often known as mini meals are a modern alternative to the traditional evening finger buffet, individual portions of your chosen delicious meal are beautifully presented and served in stylish white rice bowls, perfectly designed to sit in the palm of your hand. It’s a great way to feed your guests an inventive and tasty dish informally, without everyone having to sit down. This also helps to keep the party atmosphere going throughout the evening and prevents the inevitable queue which forms with a more traditional buffet where everyone has to work their way along a line, being served the various elements of the buffet.



Aromatic and Tasty – Evening Bites

It is an irrefutable truth that no matter how much you may have enjoyed your Wedding Breakfast Meal, there is something about the sweet aroma of sizzling cured bacon or a joint of roast beef which will set your taste buds on overdrive.

There is always room for a bacon butty and our Hot Roast Pork and Beef baps never fail to go down a treat!

Our Evening Bites offer a fresh take on some of the classic evening buffet options and are always popular with guests.



A Succulent Hog Roast or Chargrilled Delights from the BBQ

The picturesque setting of The West Mill wedding venue lends itself perfectly to the food theatre that is a Hog Roast or Barbecue; your guests are tempted by tantalizing wafts of spit-roasted Derbyshire pig and the irresistible sounds of juicy and succulent cuts of meat or fish being seared on the barbeque. Available between March and October out in the courtyard, these options remain firm favourites especially on a warm summer’s evening where we can serve the food outside. In the event of poor weather we cook under a gazebo and serve the food from a buffet table inside the venue.

Your Wedding Cake

Choosing your wedding cake is great fun, you’ll be amazed at the array of different styles and shapes, flavours and designs available to choose from. You are very welcome to provide your own wedding cake as we appreciate the complexity and great skill involved in some of the artisan cakes we see. It is also a delight when we see a simple yet effective alternative to the traditional three tier wedding cake, such as cupcakes or individual little Victoria Sponges or macaroons.  Whatever you choose for your wedding cake you can rest assured that our evening reception menu prices include our skilful chef cutting delicate fingers of your wedding cake to be served alongside your savoury choices.

Cheese Tower as Your Wedding Cake

A popular choice in recent times has been to have a tower of cheeses for your wedding cake.

Choose the cheeses you would like to make the layers of your tower, from our catering partner’s extensive selection or alternatively, source the cheeses yourself and arrange to deliver them at 9am the day before your wedding.  The cheese tower is assembled and decorated by our chef and served with assorted Crackers, Grapes, Celery, Chutneys and Pickles as required.

Prices for this vary so please speak to our catering partners to discuss your individual requirements in detail.
