Our exceptional in-house team curate exquisite menus for weddings and events, using the freshest of ingredients, sourced locally.Our Head Chef, Craig Tomlin has spent his career climbing through the ranks of the kitchen staff hierarchy. He quickly learnt the importance of a clean and efficient kitchen, but most importantly the strength a great team has. In 2013, Craig took some time out of the kitchen to travel and explore new cuisines. Coming back to the UK he was inspired by some of the new flavours and ideas he had experienced first hand, which only diversified his food further. Fast forward a few years and we are thrilled to have Craig at the pinnacle of our team where he is an integral part of the ongoing success of weddings and events at Apton Hall. We simply adore great food, which can tell so many stories. Let your wedding breakfast tell yours...
