Our atmospheric on-site restaurant, Seasons, is a popular choice for pre-wedding meals and engagement celebrations. Throughout the year we invite our couples and their loved ones to our Wedding Taster Events, which are designed to help our couples to choose which of the dishes from our wedding breakfast menu they’d like to enjoy with their guests on the big day. From canapés to your wedding banquet to your evening buffet, exquisite dining is a staple of a Stirk House wedding.
