Catering – a tasty offering

All our meals and refreshments are served in The Refectory overlooking the Abbey and its fantastic grounds. Delegates can relax in comfort as a break away from the busy agenda of the day with our attentive staff on hand to look to their every need.

Our food is specially planned and prepared on site in our purpose designed kitchens. We offer refreshments as required, including drinks and biscuits on arrival and throughout the day, as well as our two course buffet style lunch, where your delegates can choose from a simply mouth-watering selection of hot and cold foods. Wherever possible we use ingredients either grown on site or sourced locally.

We are happy to try to accommodate special dietary requirements wherever possible, however, we do appreciate prior notice to allow us to devise a menu plan which suits.

To avoid any disappointment, dining tables in The Refectory need to be reserved at the time of booking an event.

“I would like to thank you for your support with the South West Emergency Academic Team Meeting which we hosted with you yesterday. During the planning and organisation stages, I really appreciated that you and your team were easily contactable, flexible and consistently willing to help.

The meeting was a great success, and this was in no small part due to the standard of hospitality provided by you and your team. The quality of the venue and surroundings were excellent but what really stood out was the pride your catering team took in putting on a good spread for us. Personally, I felt that yesterday’s lunch was one of the best I’ve had at a conference, and I received only very positive comments from other delegates as well.

I would not be reticent in using Buckfast for events in the future, and would definitely recommend your venue to others. Many thanks once again”
