Notley Abbey is one of six romantic and exclusive use wedding venues owned by Bijou. Built in the 12th century, it was once the home of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh and is steeped in history, romance and glamour. It was fully restored in the early 2000s and is available for exclusive wedding hire throughout the year. Located near Thame on the Oxfordshire-Buckinghamshire border, Notley is licensed for civil ceremonies both inside and out and the in-house team of chefs can cater for up to 192 guests in the remarkable Monks’ Refectory, parts of which date back to 1192 and which, historically, hosted the daily meals of the Augustine Monks who lived on site. Various entertaining spaces are licensed for civil ceremonies - the house boasts the Abbott’s Hall, oak-beamed reception rooms featuring open fire places and nine luxury bedrooms including a delightful bridal suite.

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!
