We have three (3) rooms available for private events:
The Wine Loft and Boarding Room are on the second floor so all attendees must be able to go up/down a flight of stairs. The Gathering Room is on the main floor and has a private bar (bartender fee of $75).
We do not charge room rental fees. For each private room we do have a minimum food expenditure requirement. Please call us for that information.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT PRICING: we give you the bottom line right up front! Our pricing is all inclusive: tax and service are included in the prices we quote on our menus. If you are comparing costs with other venues, please be aware that most venues have fine print that says tax and gratuity is not included and as much as 18-28% will be added to your bill. We don’t do that. We know you need to know your final price for budgeting purposes. No surprise added fees here!
For most private parties, there are three (3) different menus to choose from:
Dinner Buffet: a buffet dinner; two options and two prices. Includes cheese & cracker display and fresh vegetables with dip upon arrival, a served house salad, warm rolls and honey butter, 2 or 3 buffet entrees, roasted potatoes or rice, Chef’s seasonal vegetable, dessert, coffee/tea, soda. It does not include alcohol.
Served, Plated Dinner: You select 3 entrees for your guests to choose from in advance. These must be pre-selected by your guests with a count of each entree provided to us in advance. Includes a served house salad, warm rolls and honey butter, entree, potatoes or rice (depending on the entree selection), Chef’s seasonal vegetable, dessert, coffee/tea, soda. It does not include alcohol.
Hors d’oeuvres/Reception/Party: Make as many or as few selections as you like (as long as you meet the minimum food expenditure for the specific room). This menu is available a la carte with a combination of passed hors d’oeuvres and stationary food. It can be a full dinner or lighter fare, depending on what items and how many you select. Give us a call at 860-747-6813 and we will be happy to make recommendations for the quantity and number of items for your specific party. It does not include alcohol.
We also have special menus available for Luncheons, Wedding/Baby Showers, or a Bereavement Gathering, see below. Please note: The Luncheon and Bereavement Packages are only available with a start time between 11:30am-2:00pm. The start time also applies to the Shower Package, which is only available on Saturdays and Sundays.
For alcohol, we charge based on consumption. You have several options for drinks:
1. The drinks tab is paid by the host. If you would like to limit the bar choices we can do that too, i.e., wine and beer only.
2. The drinks are paid for by the attendees/guests.
3. Or a combination of the above: drinks paid by the host for a certain amount of time (or up to a certain budget) and then a cash bar paid by the attendees.
Please review the menus and then call us at 860-747-6813 to discuss the specifics for your party. Or, complete the Banquet Inquiry form at the bottom of the page here. Thank you!
