The food

A key part of any wedding day is the traditional wedding breakfast. With an established reputation as one of the finest wedding venues in Nottinghamshire and a newly installed state-of-the-art kitchen Maverick provides a specialist in-house team which includes talented head chef Felicity Bartley. This means that unlike the majority of wedding venues in Nottinghamshire, we are able to tailor our fantastic menu to suit any kind of dietary requirement you or your guests may have.

We are incredibly passionate about food and use only the finest and freshest ingredients of excellent provenance. We buy British almost exclusively, and local whenever possible.
