Quality time at its best

Private dining at The Elvetham

Here at The Elvetham we know how to throw a party. And with the help of Head Chef Darren, delicious food and fine wine are a given at any celebration. Private dining is the perfect excuse to catch up with friends, celebrate as a team, and make the most of your quality time together. Please see below for a selection of our private dining menus.

If you or your guests have any dietary requirements, please let us know when you make your enquiry and we will organise some alternatives for you.


The perfect start to any fantastic evening, canapés are a guaranteed crowd pleaser to whet your guests' appetites for what's to come.

Private dining

Sometimes the best way to catch up is over a delicious sit down three course meal. From prawn cocktail and salads to Gigot of lamb and seared duck breast, we have something for everyone. Vegetarian options available.


Gather friends, family, and colleagues for an afternoon in the sun while enjoying 35 acres of stunning gardens at The Elvetham.
