Here, at Charnwood Lodge, we always try to provide personal, professional funeral teas. We work hard to create a personalised service that aims to reduce the stress involved and provide a hassle free day with the least amount of worry.

With many years’ experience of memorial and funeral teas – and with our family run business experience – we know the importance of these events. That’s why, without fail, we bring consistently high levels of support, ensuring we always offer a sympathetic, efficient service during this difficult time.

Buffet menu

Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy and our main aim at Charnwood Lodge is to give the personal touch, creating a service for you that will reduce the stress of the day and cause the least amount of worry.

Every member of our experienced family run team understands how crucial it is that these events run smoothly. So, you can be guaranteed of a consistently high level of care and quality at Charnwood Lodge, while we will always ensure a helpful and friendly service during this difficult time.

When it comes to providing food for a funeral tea or wake, we have three buffet menu selections for you to choose from and also offer an additional choices menu. Our buffet menus have been specially designed to ensure guests can choose from a traditional and modern range of food to suit all tastes and dietary requirements, with a range of prices to suit a variety of budgets.

Your food choices

Choose from Menu One which includes a selection of freshly filled sandwiches, homemade sausage rolls and chicken drumsticks, as well as a variety of crisps and dips.

For a little extra, you can choose Buffet Menu Two which comes with all of the above, plus additional sandwich options, a selection of seasonal quiches and the choice to have chicken goujons with a sweet chilli dip as an alternative to hot or cold chicken drumsticks.

Then finally, Buffet Menu Three offers an even greater selection of sandwich flavours, such as coronation chicken and cold water prawns, along with other tasty bites, which include mini spring rolls and vegetable samosas.

All of the food will have been lovely prepared by our experienced staff, using freshly cooked and locally sourced ingredients to help ward off the hunger pangs at such an emotionally difficult time.

Refreshment for your guests

After the main buffet, one of our trained staff members will be on hand to provide tea and coffee with a selection of cakes, as well as herbal teas and other soft drinks.  At these occasions, the bar is always open for those who wish for something a little stronger too. We can also provide a ‘drinks reception’ in the winter months, which is usually sherry or mulled wine, should your guests want something to warm them up on arrival.

We are always happy to arrange a meeting with you at Charnwood Lodge to discuss your own specific needs, as well as giving you the chance to get a feel for our setting. For loved ones wanting to celebrate the life of a close family member it’s important you see the beautiful setting, as well as getting any personal requirements sorted out with minimal fuss.
