Wells House branching out with brunch and weddings
A luxury brunch in the Big House proved to be a big attraction at Wells House and Gardens recently.
The house is normally just open to tour groups, while food and refreshments are served in the adjoining tea rooms, but on this occasion, the ambiance of the main house was the backdrop for morning meal
Sabine Rosler said the event provided a different way for people to interact with the house and its history. 'It was definitely a more intimate experience and allowed people to feel they were part of the house itself,' she said.
The menu was based on classic brunch dishes, with a touch of magic provided by the chefs. They even served Wells House beef with a quirky twist. The morning began with a canapé and cocktail reception on arrival and a small tour of the house. Guests were then served a beautiful three course brunch which included a surprise fourth course
The occasion was also used to launch the new Wells House wedding packages. These include the signature package - A Stately Affair - a fine dining, luxury offering which takes place entirely in the house for the more intimate weddings of up to 40 people. They are also launching a new venue on the grounds next year which will hold up to 160 people. Wedding photography, civil ceremonies, and day after events including barbecue, brunch, afternoon tea and falconry are also offered,
