Traditional Wedding Breakfasts

With a reputation for producing exceptional food from locally-sourced, seasonal produce it’s little wonder The Boat House is a popular wedding venue for couples that share a love for food.

Traditional wedding breakfasts are a key part of the wedding day celebrations – but whether you are looking for a formal, sit-down affair or something more relaxed, our award-winning kitchen team can offer a range of options to suit.

Sit Down Wedding Breakfast to Share with Guests

After many months of planning, it can feel like your big day goes by in a flash – so for many couples, a sit-down wedding breakfast that they can share with guests offers the opportunity to slow down and enjoy time with friends and loved ones.

Seating up to 150 for a formal wedding breakfast, The Boat House can be quickly transformed from civil ceremony wedding space into an elegant dining room with views across the neighbouring canal and rolling Staffordshire countryside. This is perfect backdrop for couples to make their big entrance as a newlywed couple in front of their wedding party before they sit down to enjoy their meal.

Many couples still opt for traditional speeches and toasts before the wedding breakfast is served – a wonderful opportunity to share stories and make new memories, often accompanied by laughter and tears of joy.
