Buffet Menus

Buffets provide an impressive yet informal dining solution for weddings, business lunches and family parties. Our array of buffet menus range from exquisitely dressed and decorated meat and fish to your favourite ‘picking’ foods at our antipasti grazing table.

Brend Hotels are renowned for their resplendent, bountiful buffets that bring the wow factor to any event, but equally we know how to tailor a buffet to suit any environment and taste for a spread that is as grand or relaxed as you desire. Our luxury hotel quality food, that is responsibly and locally sourced where possible, is sure to impress your guests as you gather around the buffet table.

"The level of generosity shown by Brend Hotels at the Castle Hill Jubilee Ball was astounding. Quite simply Nigel, you and your staff made the evening the success that it was."
Stephen Roberts, Commercial Director North Devon Hospice
"Just to say a huge thank you for catering at our sons’ wedding at Castle Hill. We cannot speak highly enough of Nigel, Elliot and all the staff, who looked after us with faultless precision and effort. So many guests said how wonderful the food was and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to our friends. James and Vikki have had such a great start to their marriage. Thank you again. With kind regards."
Mike and Sue Howard
"Thank you for all your help leading up to and on the day for our wedding at Castle Hill on the 27th April. We both had a wonderful time and family and friends enjoyed the wedding breakfast thanks to all your preparation and organisation on the day. Thanks and best wishes."
Martin and Natalie
"The Dinner on the Saturday evening was an outstanding success and I was hugely impressed with Nigel and his team and how they coped with the dreadful weather conditions. Given that the food had to be prepared offsite it was delicious and many people commented on how good it was and how succulent and tasty the chicken was - well done to the chef."
Ian, Aston Martin Centenary Dinner at Castle Hill Devon
"Myself, my husband and the family can't thank Nigel and his team Enough! What an amazing job he done for us the food was 100% and the service was even better! Will 100% always recommend! "

"Both myself, my new husband and all our family and friends cannot recommend this company more highly. They treat your venue as one of their own and go above and beyond to ensure everything is perfect for you and all your guests. This is not just a business to them, there is genuine care and attention put towards doing the job right. We are so grateful for everything they did for us and it was a complete bonus that the food was out of this world!!!”"
