Eat, drink and be merry! From your arrival drinks to your wedding breakfast and beyond, exceptional food and drink is at the heart of what we do. Our suppliers are the best in the business and we think you’ll love them as much as we do.

At Town Head you're able to enjoy two exclusive bars; including our stylish indoor bar located inside the Wedding Barn, and our gin and cocktail terrace bar, which boasts beautiful views over the orchard.


We have built not one, but two of the most beautifully stylish bars for you to enjoy.

The Main Bar is situated inside the Wedding Barn, stocking everything you would expect on your wedding day including draft beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. 

The Gin and Cocktail Bar (formerly a traditional outdoor “Longdrop” WC) has been given a new lease of life and is situated outside the main barn on the terrace. With beautiful decking overlooking the orchard and gardens, it’s the perfect place from which to enjoy a range of house cocktails, and special requests by arrangement. How about hosting a cocktail hour after the wedding breakfast when your guests can stretch their legs and enjoy a change of scenery with espresso martini in hand?

Our team are happy to serve drinks from either, both, or anywhere else you can think of to fit with your plans. Drinks receptions in the gardens and grounds can easily be arranged so take your pick of your dream location.

We have an amazing wine list, and are able to offer a variety of drinks packages to suit all tastes and budgets. See the links to the Wine List and Drinks Packages below for more information on what we offer.

If you are unsure about which wine or fizz to choose, then why not indulge in some dedicated tasting to help you decide. Have a look at the link entitled Order your Wedding Wine, where you will be able to order a mixed case to be sent directly to your home. Wine tasting for your special day is part of the fun of planning, and with the option to try a few different bottles at home first, you will have absolute confidence in your selection for the big day itself. That said, if you are determined to have that special vintage from your favourite vineyard then you are able to bring it, subject to reasonable limits and prepayment of a corkage charge (see FAQs for full details).

Food & Catering

We are delighted to confirm that Karen Rhodes Weddings & Events provide exclusive catering at Town Head. Using local ingredients produced here in the Lake District wherever possible, they offer an outstanding service, not only in terms of the quality of the food, but also in terms of the diversity of the menu and the professionalism of their staff. Pricing is competitive and every menu is bespoke, meaning that you and your guests can enjoy a menu that is completely unique to you. They even have a food van should you prefer a more relaxed street food feel, perhaps for your evening food! Wrap around catering is also available should you wish to plan additional meals for you and your guests to all eat together in the days either side of your wedding.

Please note that the catering costs are not included in the prices at Town Head, as this is something that you will arrange separately with Karen Rhodes Weddings and Events once you have booked your date with us. However, we have installed a full catering kitchen to ensure that additional costs are avoided wherever possible and that everything runs seamlessly on the day.

We will pass your details onto the team at Karen Rhodes once your booking is confirmed, to provisionally hold the date. You will still need to confirm this date separately with them, with a deposit

We take no commission from any of our suppliers, including Karen Rhodes. We work exclusively with Karen Rhodes purely because we have seen first-hand the magic that they bring to weddings at Town Head.

We'd love to hear from you.
