Buffet Menu

This allows your guests to choose the quantity and variety of food that they enjoy and we find fits in well with the relaxed atmosphere of the venue. This is suitable for either round or long tables.


Sit Down Menu

Alternate Drop / Plated Meals
The Traditional Wedding reception style. Usually an alternate drop 2 or 3 course menu with canapés to start. The meal can be finished with a dessert buffet or just your wedding cake. This is suitable for either round or long tables.


Cocktail Menu

Food is passed around to your guests by our friendly wait staff in 1 to 2 bite portions. This gives you and your guests the opportunity to mingle throughout the night and it often allows the party to start a lot earlier as formalities are limited.


Sharing Platter Menu

Basically a buffet served at the table. Imagine a Mediterranean long lunch style. This, however, means that table decoration must be limited for practical reasons and we recommend only using long rectangular tables for your room set up.

The Drinks


Adams Peak Country Estate is unlicensed. This gives you the opportunity to BYO alcohol – choose your favourite Hunter Valley wines or bring your favourites from another wine region (sshhh… we won’t tell the locals…)

We have some amazing wineries in Broke, who make white, red and bubbles for the wedding toasts (or just to enjoy yourself). Some of them offer special deals for couples getting married at Adams Peak, so don’t forget to ask. How perfect would it be to have a wine from the Broke Fordwich region served at your wedding?!

This is a list of some local wineries, please check them out.
