The fort has a full alcohol and entertainments licence, but you can provide all your own drinks free of charge to your guests and we do not charge you any corkage! Think of the saving on those bottles of champagne!

One of the first things you need to do is decide what alcohol you are going to offer your guests. You can choose to hire in a pay bar, and we can provide you with details of someone who will run one for you, or supply the bar yourselves and give away your drinks to your guests.

You could provide a fully stocked bar at your wedding reception or opt for a minimally stocked bar and maybe a signature drink. This could be a favourite drink that the two of you share, or it can be a tipple that reflects your theme or colours and decor.

The choice is yours! You can even mix it up a little…for example, you might decide to provide the bubbly for the toast and table wine and use a pay bar service to come along in the evening and sell a wider range of drinks.

There is plenty to choose from, Champagne on the lawn, Mulled Wine by the open fire or even…

Bloody Mary’s in the Gazebo!
