We can do anything!
Food & Beverage Services
For business meetings, workshops, and private functions, our preferred caterers can arrange a simple menu of fresh local cuisine, ranging from fruit and veggie trays to sandwiches, soups & salads and homemade baked goods and beverages along with a variety of beverages.
For weddings or more elaborate menus, we have three excellent caterers on our Preferred Caterers List. We highly recommend you choose one of the following local caterers who we have seen in action serving functions at the Alton Mill and we know provide excellent service. Clients are welcome to use caterers outside of this list, however there will be an additional fee for our staff to provide orientation and support. FYI, we do not receive a percentage of the caterers' charges.
