What area can you cover? 
We are based in Aylesbury, very near to the Buckinghamshire / Oxfordshire border. Areas within a 40 mile radius of Aylesbury are included in our hire costs. We can travel further of course, additional mileage will be charged at a flat rate per mile. 
How many guests can you cater for? 
Each of our bars is always staffed by a minimum of 2 members of our team. We can cater for 90 guests for a service time of 6 hours. For events with 90+ guests, one additional member of staff per 45 guests is required and will be charged at an hourly rate. 
For events with less than 90 guests this is optional. If your guest list is smaller for a more cosy gathering please let us know. 
Can your menu be customised? 
We have carefully built our sample menu. It offers something for everyone, and we feel it’s fit for any gathering. However, we are happy to tailor your menu to your requirements. We can customise your menu with locally sourced ingredients, cater for dietary requirements such as Gluten Free or Vegan, theme it to suit your event, or even make it completely alcohol free! 
Can you cater for dietary requirements? 
Yes. Ask us about tailoring your menu - Gluten Free, Vegan and other dietary requirements can be catered for. 
I don’t want alcohol at my event, can you cater for this? 
Yes. We recognise that for many reasons, more and more people are choosing an alcohol-free lifestyle. But a truly delicious drinks experience can still be enjoyed. We always offer alcohol free options in our menu, and can provide a completely non-alcoholic menu if that’s your preference 
Are Cocktails & Mocktails always part of your menu? 
We believe that the inclusion of Cocktails and Mocktails completes any party. We pride ourselves on offering beautiful and delicious seasonal choices in our menus. 
We suggest that a maximum of 5 cocktail and/or mocktail options are included in your menu and would be happy to discuss creating a tailored option just for you. However, we understand that not everyone will want to include Cocktails and Mocktails, please let us know if this is the case. 
How much is your hire fee? 
Event bookings begin at £325. Please contact us and we’ll be happy to provide a bespoke proposal for your event. 
Can I book more than one of your bars for the same event? 
Of course! Betty can be booked alongside Clara or Gwen a subsequent cost. We recommend this for events with over 90 guests to maximise service. 
What is your Uniform? 
Our uniform is a distinctive blue and white striped tee with dark blue apron displaying our logo. If you wish for us to adjust our uniform to suit your occasion please let us know. 
Do you have a minimum spend? 
A minimum bar spend of £675 per bar, per service session, applies. If your guests spend less than £675 it will be the responsibility of yourself as our client to pay the balance. 
What type of payment do you accept at your bars? 
We prefer to stick to card payments, but Cash can be accepted if requested in advance. 
Are you insured and licensed? 
Yes. We have full Public Liability Insurance and a personal licence holder will be present at every event we provide a service for. As the personal licence holder we are happy to organise a Temporary Events Notice (TEN) if required, part of our hire cost. 
Please note, we will need to see evidence of a TEN for your event if we are not asked to apply for this on your behalf. 
Do you need access to Drinking Water? 
We offer fruit infused drinking water at all times. In order to keep this topped up we prefer to have access to running drinking water. If this is not possible, please let us know in advance. 
Will you take away your waste? 
We will take away any waste created behind the bar(s) for recycling. Waste created from drinks after they have been served is the responsibility of the client. 
Do you require a Power supply? 
We require access to a 16amp power feed where we will be drawing 13amps. The connection to the power source must be within reasonable distance. For residential events, it may be possible to connect up to 13amp socket(s). We can provide a generator to power our bar(s) in an outdoor setting at an additional cost. 
What type of ground can you pitch your horse box on? 
Although we prefer a hardstanding, we are used to pitching up in a meadow or on a lawn. However, the ground must be deemed dry enough to accommodate our horse box, including access and departure. Our main requirement is that the site is relatively level. A site visit will usually be necessary prior to the event. 
How big is your bar? 
Each bar varies in size. Our usual minimum pitch size for Clara is 6m x 3m. Betty, our freestanding bar is smaller. 
Will you require any other space? 
In most circumstances we require a 3m x 3m gazebos to be pitched for prep, storage and shelter. This is to be located either directly behind our bar(s) or within reasonable distance. 
What are your access requirements? 
A minimum of 2.5m wide x 3.5m high is needed for our vehicle to access, and a reasonable area to manoeuvre upon access and departure is required. A site visit will usually be necessary prior to the event. 
How long will you need to set up and pack down? 
Set up takes a minimum of 2 hours, and pack down approximately 1-2 hours. Depending on the details of your event, it may be advisable to pitch up the day before, or wait until the day after to remove our horse box. We are happy to discuss the details and work out the best plan. 
Will I need a Temporary Event Notice for my event? 
A TEN is required when carrying out a ‘licensable activity’ on unlicensed premises. As the personal licence holder we are happy to organise this for your event as part of our hire cost. Please note, we will need to see evidence of a TEN for your event if we are not asked to apply for this on your behalf. 
How do I book? 
Please Contact Us. We can then provide a bespoke proposal for your event and confirm availability. In order to secure your booking, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit and return a signed copy of our Terms & Conditions. We will then work with you in the lead up to the event to confirm all the finer details. 
Will you need to visit my event venue prior to the event? 
A site visit will usually be necessary prior to the event. This is to check access requirements, and that the ground Is suitable to pitch in (where one of our horse box bars is booked) 
Can I supply my own drinks? 
We do not currently offer a ‘dry hire’ service. This is because we are very passionate about providing an entire drinks experience.
