Wedding Cuisine

All food served at Chamberlain's is prepared in-house using only the highest quality ingredients available. Fresh local ingredients, grown here on the farm, are used whenever possible. Please remember that our staff is extremely flexible and creative. If you don't see exactly what you would like on our menus, we would be happy to discuss alternatives or substitutions.

Appetizers

All wedding packages at Chamberlain's come with a minimum of 2 passed appetizers and 1 stationary appetizer. We feel that a great cocktail hour sets the tone for the entire evening and that presentation is just as important as the food quality itself. We want your guests to relax and enjoy themselves.

Dinner Selections

For different tastes and budgets, we offer 3 distinct wedding packages. All are served with the same high quality ingredients and the same attention to detail. Our menu includes a variety of chicken, seafood, and beef options; however, if you don't see specifically what you have in mind, we would love to work with you to create your dream menu. Substitutions can be made for vegetarians and children.

Bar Service

We offer several beverage service options to ensure that your guests enjoy themselves--cash bar, limited open bar, or open bar.

Frequently Asked Questions – Functions

Customer Service

We will do everything we can to help make sure your event goes off exactly how you envision it. Jacqui will be happy to assist you in determining your menu, event timetable, floor plan vendor choices and more.

 

Your  Event

When can I get in to set up?          

Unfortunately, there is no absolute guideline on when the facility will be available for you to set up. There are a variety of factors involved. We will make sure that there is enough time for everything to be arranged to specifications, and Jacqui will be able to determine more precisely when the pavilion will be available. Generally ½ hour before

 

What is included for my event?

Standard set up and take down, flexible layout of your choosing, large on site parking area, proficient and hospitable wait staff, experienced bartenders, sixty-inch round wooden tables seating 8 – 10 guest, linen tablecloths, chairs, all disposable dish ware and hurricane centerpieces.

.

How long can my event last?

Your event may last up to five hours. All events must conclude by midnight.

 

What happens if there is inclement weather?

In case of bad weather, we can move the outdoor portions of your event inside. There are sides that can be put up to enclose the pavilion and tent area.

 

 

 

 

The Facility

 

 

What is the capacity of Chamberlain's?

We have a capacity of up to 200. Larger non-wedding parties can be accommodated.

 

Can I rent the space and bring my own food or beverages?

The pavilion is available for rent without food, but all alcohol must be supplied by Chamberlain’s, as licensee in accordance with Massachusetts State Liquor Regulations. Anyone caught with outside alcohol will be asked to leave.

 

What if I have unique ideas for my event?

By all means, we encourage our guests to come up with innovative ways to set their events apart. Please feel free to ask us if your ideas are feasible, or if we can think of any alternatives or other interesting ideas we have seen in the past.

.

Fees and Charges

 

What deposit is required to hold a date?

For non-wedding events, a non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to hold a date. An additional non- refundable deposit of 50% of the total estimated bill is due 30 days prior to the event.

 

I need to cancel my event; can I get my deposit back?

Because of the nature of the event business, and the fact that the vast majority of events need to be booked well in advance and require a lot of work prior to the event, all deposits are non-refundable.

 

Are the prices subject to change?

Although we have never done so, we reserve the right to change our prices without notice. Food costs, especially beef and seafood, can be extremely volatile and out of our control, and if need be, we may need to adjust our prices accordingly.

 

What if my numbers change?

Your final count is due 2 weeks before wedding. Additions may be added but not subtracted. Pavilion fee is set two weeks out and will not be lowered if guest count falls.

 

Why is there a pricing difference between weddings and other functions?

There is a difference between weddings and other functions because of the amount of work it takes to put on a wedding both before and during the day of the event versus a business or social gathering. While normal events may require one or two meetings to set up, a wedding can require 5 times that number. The day of the event, weddings require extra fixtures, such as place cards, cake, and gift table and linens, and extra staff to attend to the wedding party and ensure the timetable for the event goes smoothly. There is a big and important difference between weddings and other events.
