Wedding and Special Event Catering

Cuisine that befits your special day – just as you and your guests like it!

At Cote How, we are able to cater for your special day in whichever style you choose; from a la carte fine dining in the beautiful 16th century house, to more informal rustic dishes in the newly renovated barn.

Karen Healy, our Executive Chef, left behind a successful career in finance, to fulfil her love of making people happy through her food. For more than seven years’ she has run Green's restaurant in nearby Grasmere as a thriving café and bistro, establishing a reputation for delicious and innovative cuisine using good quality produce, both sustainable and locally sourced.

Karen will prepare and cook your menu on site and ensure that all your dishes are tasty and enjoyable, leaving you and your guests with wonderful memories. Karen excels in providing for special diets, so if you or your guests have any specific requests, we will be able to cater for them.

Our menus are a guide to the type of food that other guests have particularly enjoyed. If there is a special dish that you would like to incorporate, please let us know and we will try our very best to accommodate you.
