Buffet queue, bar and bread table

We suggest this layout for catering for your reception as we know it works well.

Bar in No.1 Court Grainstore

Local company, The Grainstore, can provide a bar like this for your reception at Oakham Castle.

Buffet queue

Hot buffets can be laid out in No. 1 Court for your wedding reception. Table service is possible, but requires additional catering tents.

Reception tables set up

Oakham Castle can accommodate receptions of up to 90 guests.

Guests enjoy the history

The building you've chosen as your venue is rich in history, with plenty of opportunity for your guests to soak it up either before or after the ceremony.

Post ceremony drinks

Why not end your booking with a glass or two of fizz?
