Bar/Reception drinks

One of the most popular areas (not surprisingly!) is the Bar area, which is is open from 12 noon on your wedding day. It’s a great space for guests to congregate ahead of your ceremony or after you have arrived from church. If you have friends and family travelling from around the UK or world, it’s a great time for them all to mix and mingle, and swap stories.

After your ceremony, either at Heaton House Farm or a local church, you and your guests will have worked up a thirst and the Heaton House Events team will be on hand with a selection of drinks that you have chosen to provide your guests. You may opt for a traditional glass of prosecco, or how about a bottle of lager for the gentlemen and a classy cocktail for the ladies? Or how do you like the sound of ‘Pimms on the Patio?’

The bar remains open through the drinks reception, and meal allowing your guests to choose from a wide range of popular soft drinks, spirits, wines, lagers and champagnes. We are proud to offer a selection of local gins, traditional ciders and award-winning real ale from Wincle Beer Co also which adds a personal touch to the bar.

For the real ale lovers, there is the option to have your own ale personalised with your own pump clip. You could also spend a day brewing your beer a couple of miles up the road at the micro brewery, a popular idea for your Stag Day!

We accept payment by cash or card (minimum spend £5) and all the drinks are reasonably priced.

During your dining, our wine service can be chosen. All you have to do is decide an overall total of bottles you would like to offer, (we suggest 3 bottles per 10 guests) and our Heaton House Events team will offer your guests the choice of all three wines so that they may choose which wine they prefer during dinner. As the wines are served by our staff throughout dinner it means that bottles are not opened and left on the table for guests to serve themselves, so wastage is kept to a minimum and saves you money.

Last orders for the bar are called at 11.45pm, so you and your guests can enjoy delicious drinks and friendly service right up to the end of the celebrations.
