For pre Sept 2019 weddings

The Evening Buffet Menus were changed in Sept 2020. The old menus are here.

If you booked your wedding before Sept 2020 you've probably selected from the Original Buffet menu. To view these menus, follow the links above and below.

If you are booking after September 2020 you may select from the new menus on this Evening Buffet page. If you prefer any of the individual items on the 'old menus' page, you can add them at £2.95 per guest for each supplementary item.

You can choose additional items from the Original Evening Buffet or the 2018 Buffet.

The 2020 Evening Buffet menu has three different pre-set Buffet Options above.

For the 2019 Evening Buffet choices, see:


Craig Y Nos Castle offers a good variety of evening buffet options. Our chefs can also discuss any suggestions you may have - so let us know if you want something 'special'.
Choosing from the Original Evening Buffet Menus

If you booked your wedding before September 2019, please view the old Evening Buffet Options here.  You can still choose individual menu items from the old menus if you prefer. The old system was that we allowed up to 6 choices off the old menus, for £17/ head, and you then added additional items for £2.95/ item.

For 2020 menus, you choose the main selection from this page, and can add additional items from the old menus below. Some items are more expensive than others so the quantity is adjusted to enable us to charge the same rate of £2.95/ guest for each extra item.

See Original 2012-2018 Buffet Choices here. Choose any individual items to add to the 2020 Buffet selection.

See 2018 Buffet Choices here. Choose any individual items to add extras to the 2020 Buffet selection.

You may also be interested in our alternative option of slow roast hot pork rolls  - served with apple sauce, crackling and stuffing alongside a selection of condiments. Basically like a Hog Roast without the visual effect of the pig roasting on a spit. This would be an alternative to the choice of six items above.

How many should you book for?
_____________________________

How many evening guests do you truly expect for the evening buffet?  Have you updated the number of evening guests you now expect based on you RSVPs?

We do not take bookings for the Evening Buffet when Brides first book their wedding, so if you wish to offer guests an evening buffet, let us know so it can be added to your account.

Kindly note we do not allow ‘under-catering’ as this leads to complaints from guests if food runs out. So, if you invite 100 evening guests, you need to cater for 100. However, you should be realistic about attendance levels. Not all evening guests will turn up on the night. The ‘no-show’ rate may be 5% to 10%. You can estimate your 'no-show rate' around this level (but no more than 10%) and deduct this from the original total.

For example, if you invite 100 evening guests, but expect some day guests to leave early or some evening extras not to come at all, then this is the ‘no show’ rate. If you assume 10% no-shows, you cater for 90 instead of 100 guests. This is quite acceptable as you are making a realistic estimate of numbers.

However, we cannot support intentional ‘under-catering’ where you cater for fewer than you expect, as this leads to complaints when food runs out.
The Gala Buffet at South Wales Wedding Venue Craig y Nos Castle

How hungry will your evening guests be? If you have a lot of evening extras, you may find they will eat more than guests who were at the Wedding Breakfast.

If the majority of your evening guests are with us for the day, they'll initially be full from the wedding breakfast and will eat less. That said, alcohol is an appetite stimulator, and demand for the buffet will increase as the evening dancing gets under way.

You need the buffet to go out later if you have very few evening extras, to allow your day guests to work up an appetite. If you have a large contingent of evening extras, you need the buffet to go out earlier as these new evening guests will be hungry on arrival.
Mixed Buffet including small cheese board South Wales Wedding Venue Craig y Nos Castle
Special items or suggestions of your own may cost more per person (such as a specialist cheese board incorporating a selection of interesting Welsh Cheeses) so feel free to discuss any ideas wiith our Wedding Planner and our Chef.

Some options for Buffet Displays are shown above and this display will be added to shortly. Move your mouse over the picture to read the description of the buffet you are looking at.

Cheeseboard Buffet
_______________________
You may choose a Cheeseboard Buffet either as an alternative to the main Wedding Buffet, or as an addition to it, or you can add a cheeseboard option, as one of the six full evening buffet items.

If you wish to replace the standard evening buffet with a cheeseboard option only, this is an alternative to the full evening buffet that we can offer you, at just £12.00 per head. This is for a minimum of 50 people. So you can offer your guests a cheeseboard buffet for £600, for 50 guests, and £12 for each extra guest thereafter.
