Top Table Weddings and Events Terms and Conditions
Once you have chosen Top Table as your Event caterers we are able to provisionally hold a date for you for 14 days. Having agreed a suitable date you will then be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of £250.00 + VAT to secure the booking and a contract will be issued for you to sign your agreement to Top Table’s Terms & Conditions. (NB Top Table reserves the right to release any booking for which we have not received a signed contract.)
Between 14 and 21 days prior to the event we will request
confirmation of your
The balance of your account is due as cleared funds 7 working days prior to the event (100% of the final balance). Any function for which advance payment is overdue by more than 5 days may be cancelled by Top Table, any monies due will become immediately payable. If there are any queries regarding any part of the invoice, the client will pay the undisputed balance of the sum owing on the due date and any remainder upon resolution of the query.
Payments may be made by cash, BACS, Banker's Draft or debit card. Payments by credit card will be subject to a 3% surcharge.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ONCE FULL PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED WE ARE UNABLE
TO OFFER REFUNDS OR A REALLOCATION OF MONIES.
Bookings will be treated as provisional until the deposit and signed copy of the Contract and Terms & Conditions are returned by the client, which should be within 14 days of the provisional booking. If you fail to do so, Top Table reserves the right to cancel the function without notification to the client.
In the event of a straight cancellation, the client would forfeit
any deposits having been made whatever the circumstance. In certain
circumstances and by the discretion of the Management, a deposit may
be deferred in order to secure an event on an alternative date.
Top Table reserves the right to set minimum numbers in the way of guests attending a wedding/function or catering for selected menus. If numbers fall below the set minimum, a charge may be applied. At Sandhole Farm there is small fixed fee payable to Country House Wedding Venues for less than 70 covers.
Wedding table plans and place-setting cards should be supplied no less than 3 days before the event.
Price and Menu Reviews
Top Table reserves the right to change prices and menus due to market fluctuations. Prices will be confirmed on production of final numbers for the event.
Top Table Reputation
At the absolute and unfettered discretion of Top Table, any function may be cancelled even if paid in full, if Top Table has reasonable grounds for believing that the holding of such function would prejudice the reputation, good name, or standing of the Company. Should Top Table cancel an event it may, at its discretion, refund any advance payment made but will have no further liability to the client.
The Company is not liable for any frustration of this contract caused by strikes, labour disputes, accidents or any other cause beyond the Company’s control and outside the ordinary and reasonable contemplation of the parties at the time of this contract. In such an event, Top Table shall use reasonable endeavours to offer the client alternative services, if such can be found and are acceptable to the client (such acceptance not to be unreasonably withheld). In the event that this is not possible, however, the Company’s obligation to the client extends up to, and is limited to, the full refund of any deposits held.
Whilst every effort is made to safeguard clients property Top Table does not accept any liability for any loss or damage caused. Nor can we be responsible for wedding gifts or decorations that have been delivered to or, handed over to a representative.
Top Table reserves the right to pass on to the client any additional costs incurred by them in respect of goods and services requested during the course of the function or caused by the client not adhering to the agreed terms of the services.
No beverages or food may be brought into the event by the client or guests for consumption on the premises, unless pre-agreed.
The client shall not be entitled to assign the booking to any third party nor utilise the facilities other than for the purposes stated in the contract, without Top Table' prior written approval.
We may wish to access any information you provide when making or confirming a Booking or which is provided by you to us for marketing purposes such as sending you latest offers and new brochures.
