Do you cater for special dietary requirements?
I will try to accommodate dietary requirements as much as possible. It’s very important that you let us know any allergies, intolerances, etc, before you book.
Is there a dress code?
No. Just wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
Are you licensed?
No. All my events are BYO ( you will not be charged corkage!). I do have limited fridge space to cool bottles if required.
Are your events suitable for babies or children?
Unfortunately not; all events are targeted at adults.
How do I know where the venue is?
Chez Shamwari is located in the heart of the historic World Heritage Site of Saltaire. The exact location is only provided on a ‘need to know’ basis and is sent out to all guests a few days before the event via email.
How do I know what’s on the menu?
A menu is published via email approximately 2 weeks to 10 days prior to the event.
What is the cost?
Costs vary depending on the menu and type of event. Lunches range from £16-£20 and afternoon teas £16-£18 depending on the menu.
How do I pay?
Payment is by cash or cheque payable on the day. A deposit is not required (but please see cancellation details below).
How do I book a place?
By email to: info(at)chezshamwari(dot)com stating the event and how many places you require.
What if I need to cancel?
As no deposit is requested, guests are taken on trust to honour the booking. However, it is acknowledged that sometimes there are circumstances beyond our control. Please be polite, kind and considerate to let us know as soon as is possible if you are unable to come.
Who will be the other guests?
That’s the intrigue! Lunch or tea will be served around one table. So if you come on your own or in a group, you will be seated with all the other guests and encouraged to enjoy their company and the food together.
How many people can you cater for at one time?
There are spaces for 6 people. For private bookings, the expectation is that you book all 6 spaces for your party.
