Create your perfect day

Unlike many traditional Lancashire wedding venues, here at Brockholes we offer a range of alternative catering choices for your big day, so there is something for every couple.

Enjoy a formal three-course wedding breakfast, or perhaps savour something a little different like a hog roast, a barbecue or a vintage afternoon tea! No matter what you imagine your big day to involve, we can guide you in selecting the perfect food and drink for your wedding.

All our meals are home-made using locally-sourced ingredients that are sustainably produced in the North West, so even when you are enjoying your food you can give back to the environment. We can also cater for a range of dietary requirements, offering gorgeous gluten-free meals, tempting vegetarian and vegan options (see below), and HMC-certified Halal food.

Every menu can be tailored to meet your individual style and taste, so don’t hesitate to speak to our Wedding Co-ordinator about how we can work with you to create your perfect day!
