Cooking and eating
If you are bringing a group to the Quinta you can choose to self-cater or use the catering packages offered by local caterers.
Self-catering for your own group
You’ll find the kitchens are fully equipped with all necessary cooking, dining and serving equipment, and the duty manager will show your caterers how everything works.
Self-catering is a great way to keep the cost of your weekend down, and also a good opportunity for people to get to know each other over the prep and clearing up. There’s even a dishwasher to make it all faster and easier!
We provide: bin bags, detergent for the dishwasher and cleaning sprays for the kitchen surfaces.
You will need to bring tea towels, washing up liquid, dish cloths and scourers.
If you would prefer to have a fully (or part) catered weekend, Gracious Catering will happily keep your group well fed, serving fresh, homemade meals. Please speak to them directly to discuss your requirements and menu options.
Fully catered package – £16.50 per person per 24 hours
Special Student weekend package – £22 per person
To plan a catered weekend please call Grace or Charles on 01691 590583 or 07506 842562
or visit their Gracious Catering website or Facebook page.
