Q Can you cater to dietary needs?
A Yes!  We can cater to gluten intolerance, vegetarian and pregnancy requirements.  We can‘t cater for those with serious nut allergies [we produce a large range of goods containing various nuts, so can not guarantee there would not be traces of nuts found in any given item] or those who are vegan or dairy intolerant.

Q Can I book a private function?
A Yes!  Our dining room is ideal for private functions.  We can cater to a maximum of 24 seated guests.  We offer a $1200 package that gets you our full high tea service for up to 24 guests and exclusive use of our beautiful dining room for duration of approximately 2 hours.  Perfect for elegant, sophisticated hen’s parties, baby showers, team building events, birthday or Christmas parties, please ask us about our availability and private use policy.  All corkage is also included in this package.

Q What is the maximum number of people you can cater to?
A We have 24 chairs, so that is the maximum number of seated guests we can book.  We have one communal table of 20 places, or we can split our tables to create 2 tables of 12.

Q Are you child friendly?
A We do not have high chairs or a lot of room for prams.  We do not cater for children differently in our menu planning therefore bookings for children are also $49 per person.

Q Do you have wheelchair access?
A Yes, we do have wheelchair access into the dining room and through to the toilets, however, our tables are bar height and our chairs are actually the height of bar stools.  Persons confined to wheelchairs would actually be sitting under the top surface of the tables.  We have had to assist the elderly up into the seats. 

Q Is it served on tiered cake stands or Royal Albert china?
A No.  We have taken many years to collect vintage silver and depression / vintage glass plates, trays and stands.  We love them and they make our food look amazing.  It is part of the rochelle adonis experience.  You’ll notice that all the cutlery is also mismatched silverware!
