Food and Drink

For all types of occasions

The Eastwood Suite at Portland College is set in the beautiful woodland setting of Sherwood Forest.

We understand that planning a wedding can be a stressful event. With this in mind we have designed menus that reflect our most popular choices. However, these are samples only and may be changed or adapted to suit a wide range of tastes and personal requirements, and our head chef is at your disposal should you require a bespoke menu for that special occasion or event including hot and cold buffets or theme influenced dishes including Curry or Thai, Hog Roast, Italian, or Tex Mex for example.
