PRIVATE HIRE FAQS
WHEN DO WE HOLD PRIVATE EVENTS?
We hold private events at our MARYLEBONE location Tuesday to Thursday from 7:00 PM, at our BLOOMSBURY location Monday to Friday all day, and at our HIGHBURY location Monday to Thursday from x:xx PM.
HOW DO YOU BOOK AN EVENT?
To book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your requested date, your preferred location, and information about your event and the number of guests. Sarah will then work with you to confirm your date and send you a booking form, which needs to be completed in full in order to secure your booking.
HOW MUCH DOES AN EVENT COST?
(is this the same for each location?)
Our minimum charge for events is £660.00 – this equates to 12 guests @ £55.00 per person.
Seated Cheese & Wine Tastings start at £55.00 per person
Minimum number of guests: 12
Maximum number of guests: 45
Standing Cheese & Wine Tastings start at £40.00 per person
Minimum number of guests: 35
Maximum number of guests: 80
DO YOU CHARGE ROOM HIRE?
It is not charged as a separate amount, but it is incorporated into the event costing.
CAN YOU BRING YOUR OWN WINES?
We recommend that you choose from our list so that you can enjoy the full benefit of our expertise and tutoring. However, should you wish to bring your own, we charge a minimum corkage of £22.35 (the same cost as a bottle of our house wine Chateau Le Roc).
DO YOU HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
No, but we do require a credit card number in order to secure your booking.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL?
Should you cancel less than seven days prior to the reservations 50% of the minimum expenditure of £660.00 will be charged to your card + any additional expenses LA FROMAGERIE has incurred in preparing or ordering for your event (where these orders cannot be cancelled).
Should you cancel within 48 hours prior to your event you will be charged 100% of the minimum expenditure of £660.00 + any additional expenses incurred by LA FROMAGERIE on your behalf – such as glass hire or specially-sourced ingredients.
If you rebook the event at a later date 50% of the minimum expenditure (£330) will be refunded against the final bill. Please note that the event must be rebooked within 90 days of the original booking date.
WHAT TIME WOULD YOUR EVENT START?
*** is this different for LCS and Highbury?
The shop is open until 7:30 PM. We generally prefer not to close early as we have regular customers shopping for their supper after work and want to do our best to accommodate everyone.
Depending on the size of your party will determine the layout. When your guests arrive they will be offered an aperitif, they are welcome to peruse the shop.
We only start the seated part of your tasting after 7.30pm, when the shop is closed.
Seated Cheese & Wine Tasting: 7.00pm–10.00pm
Standing Cheese & Wine Tasting: 7.00pm–10.30pm
Please note that no alcohol can be served after 10.30pm.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU WANT TO START YOUR EVENT EARLIER AND HAVE THE SHOP CLOSED?
**If this the same for LCS and Highbury - if not, let's just leave under the Moxon page.
You are welcome to come a little earlier for the aperitif part of the evening, but this may reflect in your budget, as you may require additional bottles to cover a longer period of time prior to the main tasting at 7:30pm.
We can arrange early closure by special request, but only for parties with 40 or more guests, this will incur an additional cost.
From 6.00pm: £250.00 + VAT
From 6.30pm: £200.00 + VAT
From 7.00pm: £150.00 + VAT
