Find a banquet venue for a magnificent evening

When you receive an invite to a banqueting dinner, the sense of occasion jumps out from the invite. It becomes a date in the calendar that's not to be missed. Formal wear is fretted over and the party prepping begins in earnest. Selecting the right banquet venue requires more attention than most event types.

So, in a world where economics rule and ROI is continually under the microscope, why do we continue to spend on these moments of such high indulgence? Simply, because they work.  

Location and food choices for banquet venues

It’s rare for Lime Venue Portfolio to push the importance of a particular event, but in this case we can provide two of the most critical elements of the banquet – the food and the venue. Outside of the guests themselves, these are the two most visual aspects of the event, and require a trusted partner to be involved.

The quality, service and delivery of the food are critical. With 45% of all event feedback being about the food, this isn’t just about rating the standard of the fare; this is about food as a talking point for the conversations going on at every table. Whether it’s a seven-course tasting menu for a private party, a five-course dinner at a wedding banquet, a feast fit for a king, or an intimate dinner, everyone loves to discuss food. 

The way a meal is delivered can be equally as memorable as how it tastes, and also in keeping with the aims of the event. Each banquet hall allows event catering to be at its finest and most creative. Remember, we’re delivering an event, but we’re also providing an experience at each of our banquet venues.

Banquet venues with a twist

The banquet venue can create a truly memorable backdrop to the event, and at Lime Venue Portfolio, we only deal in venues that add the 'wow' factor and theatre. 

Every day we see the astonishment on guests’ faces as they arrive at a beautifully lit Hatfield House, dine amongst the steam trains at the National Railway Museum or sip drinks under a jet at Imperial War Museum North. We understand the importance of anticipation when finally they arrive at Bristol Zoo or Churchill War Rooms. The banquet venue creates emotion for the pre-event communications, the on-the-day arrival, as well as the post-event memories. 

Entertainment is also paramount. Banquets are sociable affairs, where food and occasion provide the backdrop for enjoyment, but sometimes we need to add to the talking points. When great entertainment and great company meets wonderful food and an inspirational banquet hall setting it will be a night to remember. It combines the very best of ‘experience-driven’ events, where anticipation, occasion and memory all work in unison to create something special.
