Private Dining Venues FAQ’s

That’s what we’d all like to know! At [PD], We find it’s one of the advantages of being at the forefront of the industry however, some hidden places still slip through the net. If you know of a great new venue or space, share your secret, contact us and let us know. To keep updated with the latest news on the newest venues from our end, become a Member and Join Now.

[PD’S] Venue profiles indicate if BYO is accepted. So yes you can, however only if the private dining space or room has a BYO license. It’s also important, prior to making your booking that the venue is aware and you receive confirmation that it’s appropriate to do so. Please Note: In most instances, corkage charges will apply and vary from place to place.

It’s a question that’s often asked. In short, if the private dining venue agrees prior to making your booking then you can. Be aware that the industry standard will charge cakage fees and you may need to sign a waiver for providing food to your guests, that hasn’t been prepared by the venue. Keep in mind there is a real cost to cakage, someone has to portion, serve and wash the crockery and cutlery. In this day and age with food allergies, you need to also check off all the ingredients with all of your guests. In short [PD] believe the best etiquette is to leave it to the experts, as that’s what the private dining venue does best.
