Kate & Andrew Say
“We heard about The Mowbray and The Chimney House from a Sheffield photographer's blog when we started looking for potential wedding venues.
After visiting the venues and attending a supper club, we fell in love with the idea of the Mowbray and the Chimney House so it was the obvious choice for us. We (as with many other couples) had to delay our original wedding date due to the pandemic. The team was fantastic in terms of keeping in contact, recommendations and the organisation of (both!) the original date and our delayed wedding party.
It was amazing to be able to host our wedding party last summer with most of our original guestlist and all of our original suppliers. The venues worked just as well for a summer wedding party as they would have for our original autumn date.
We had fizz and photographs outside the Chimney House in the sunshine and our guests greeted us on the roof terrace of the Mowbray after a wander through Kelham Island.
The day really was all that we hoped for and a lot of that was down to the Mowbray team; from the venue styling to the running of the event on the day.
The venues really are as beautiful as they look in the photos and hopefully our wedding photos show how much fun we had on the day.
We got a lot of comments from our guests about the amazing food and the excellent cocktails, several of our guests still rave to us about the food months after the event.”
The Wedding Feast
The Laden Table menu is a big tick in the real food lovers box. Our signature and most popular menu, a decadent feast celebrating brilliant British growers, and some of our favourite treats of the summer. The Laden Table is all about celebrating the best of the season, as it appears from the growers, producers & suppliers. We take great delight in presenting the best of the season for your Wedding Feast, making your menu uniquely yours.
This menu is the epitome of a long, lazy sublime Summer Feast - just perfect to enjoy with friends and family...
ON THE TABLE TO START
Mowbray-made Focaccia (v, ve, g)
Burrata with Roast Peaches & Basil. Burrata is a Puglian treat, made similar to Mozzarella but with the added indulgence of a creamy interior (v)
South Coast Mackerel with Isle of Wight Tomato Salsa & Fresh Oregano
Beetroot Carpaccio; confit beetroot, Yellison Goats Curd & Toasted Pumpkin Seeds (v)
THE MAIN EVENT
Surf & Turf
As well as an outstanding piece of Yorkshire reared beef, choose from two options which are perfect plate-pals for the Picanha steak.
32 Day Aged Yorkshire Picanha Steak, chargrilled whole, sliced and served medium rare. Dressed with our confit shallot & caper salsa, packed with fresh herbs & lemon zest.
More about the Picanha: The Picanha has a nice piece of fat on top which keeps the meat juicy, but can be easily trimmed off by your guests. Our Picanha comes from Yorkshire-bred cows, and is aged to perfection for 32 days.
Scottish Langoustines, served whole, shell on (as they should be...fingers only!) with wild garlic & parsley butter. Extra napkins & finger bowls provided!
For our vegetarian and vegan guests we'll serve BBQ Cauliflower Steak, marinated with lemon & garlic chargrilled then slowly roasted. Served with a delicious caper salsa verde (v, ve)
SIDES TO SHARE
Our Laden table sides truly are the showcase of our seasonal ethos. We’ll find the best produce available on the market to deliver a gorgeous selection of salads, vegetables and potatoes.
Summer salad; A peppery, fresh salad of watercress, shaved radishes and kohl rabi when available (v, ve)
English Asparagus or sprouting broccoli, chargrilled & dressed with rapeseed oil & lemon (v, ve) The English asparagus season can come and go very quickly, so we will use it while we can!
Yorkshire Peas or Broad Beans with Pancetta, tossed with Spring Onions, Leeks or wild/wet garlic as available.
Gorgeous garlic: during the British summer we get to use the various types of wet or green garlic available. Wild garlic signals the start of Summer, we’ll also see ‘3-cornered’ which is another wild ‘green’ variety. Younger garlic bulbs are also thinned out from the main crop, which are milder in flavour and a real summertime treat!
Best new potatoes: Jersey Royals are the most famous, but there also Anya, Cornish Kings & Pink Firs. Simply buttered with some freshly chopped soft herbs (v)
Classic Mowbray PAV: piled high with fresh cream & the best berries available (v)
