Murder Mystery Dinner at Upper House Hayfield

November 23, 2012

Last week we were lucky enough to cater for a fantastic event at a very beautiful venue, Upper House Hayfield. The stunning Grade II listed former hunting lodge provided the perfect setting for this wonderful event.

Think roaring fires, vast wall mounted antlers and fine medieval timbers re-used from a church, in the ceiling and on the walls.

The beautifully dressed tables complimented the wonderfully dressed murder mystery characters.

No murder mystery is complete without a delicious dinner, and that’s where Vanilla in Allseasons came in! We served an array of canapes to get the taste buds tingling and followed with this menu-

Anti Pasto slate
Carpaccio of beef with Parmesan and rocket
Hand cured gravadlax

An absolutely fantastic time was had by all. A wonderful dinner in a stunning venue. We can’t to work with Upper House Hayfield again.
