Steeped in history and nestled in a 190 acre estate in the Hertfordshire countryside, Ashridge House is the perfect venue for your wedding whatever the season. Our spectacular Grade I listed country house has a fascinating history spanning over 730 years. It started life in 1283 as a Benedictine monastery, and following the Dissolution it became a royal residence for the children of King Henry VIII. It then passed into the hands of the Egertons who became the Dukes and Earls of Bridgewater. This rather formidable and well-connected family retained ownership until after the First World War when it became The Bonar Law College. Today the world-renowned Hult International Business School and Ashridge Executive Education call it home.

Some of the products we can deliver include

Cutlery Hire

Knives, forks and spoons are among the cheapest of all the items we offer at Chiltern Catering and Event Hire. However, while they’re not the biggest things we hire, they’re an integral part of our business and the journey we have undertaken. With five different ranges of cutlery always in stock we have literally thousands of pieces of cutlery always ready for hire.

Cutlery isn’t just about forks and spoons though. We offer speciality knives and pieces of cutlery equipment to make serving at your event or special occasion easier. Whether you’re cutting cheese, meat or even a wedding cake, we’ve got the knife you need for the job.

If washing up worries you, then help is at hand. Our “send it back dirty service” means you can scrape your cutlery of any food debris, put it back in the packing crates and leave it for us to handle back at our warehouse. It certainly beats washing spoons up until the early hours of the morning!
