Delicious Wedding menus

Delicious and locally sourced 

Cuisine that Befits Your Special Day

Cote How Wedding Menus

At Cote How, we cater for your special day in-house with a variety of Cote How wedding menus styles to suit your wedding theme; from a-la-carte private dining in the beautiful 16th-century house, to more informal rustic dishes in the 16th century Lakeland barn.

Karen, our Chef, has a firm reputation for delicious and innovative cuisine using only the best locally sourced quality produce. Karen and Caroline work together closely creating a range of wedding menus to suit Cote How weddings.  All food is carefully and freshly prepared in house by Karen and her team and can include any special diets, if you have them. Karen will also be able to mix and match some items from different menus to suit your needs, or we can develop bespoke wedding menus espcially for you.  



Whilst we work tirelessly to keep our food preparation area clean, we do prepare other allergens in the space, so we cannot ever completely guarantee an allergen-free environment. Whilst we can cater for allergies and serious dietary requirements, we do not cater for dislikes.

Due to the style of the menu, we don’t offer a separate one for allergies or dietary needs except for the coeliac and vegan diet; however, there are gluten-free and vegan options available in our standard menu and we would advise you to choose from these options to suit everybody.
If you wish to cater individually for specific guests and ask for an additional option, these will be charged at an additional £15 per person per starter and the main course to cover the additional costs involved.  

Please try to incorporate vegan guests within your menu choices, for example, opt for a vegan rather than a vegetarian starter and main, and include a couple of vegan canapes.
We can also add a vegan platter in place of canapes and a vegan Brownie in place of dessert. There is an additional charge for this @£9 per person per item.



We are legally obliged to advise you and your guests of the presence in each dish of the top 14 allergens.
These are available via our food matrix here:
