Bordello Banquets is “A Riot of Colour, Rich in Taste” and specialises in table themes and use of flambouyant props for very visual, bespoke catering, entertainment, hospitality and activities for both in-house guests at Mill End Mitcheldean & also ‘on the road’ for private events, weddings and large holiday houses within the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and as far as Bristol.
Il Bordello was originally the name of the notorious converted Dutch Barge in the centre of Bristol created by Liz and Zoff, which provided VIP hospitality and cocktails for renowned Bristol music and media events.
In 2016, the business relocated to the Forest of Dean where the owner, Liz Lewitt, had transformed a beautiful listed building, Mill End Mitcheldean, into an exclusive use boutique venue. And from here, Bordello Banquets was born. Bordello Banquets is a love affair with food; a visual, sensory feast; with sumptuous menus using the very best of local and artisan products and a quirky and creative take on table design and styling.
Bordello Banquets, together with Mill End Mitcheldean, also presents Mill End Hen Parties and can offer an entire weekend itinerary of Burlesque, Boudoir, Cocktails, Wine Tasting, Gin Mixology Fresh Pasta Making, Pizza Oven Hire, Murder Mystery, Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and so much more. Or simple graze tables and seated and served three course dinners or Full English Breakfasts with a Forest of Dean Twist.
Bordello Banquets can cater for full meat eating stag menus, pescatarian, vegetarian, vegan, free from and fodmap diets. We cater for corporates, team building, business meetings, retreats, family gatherings, milestone birthdays and hen parties.
Bordello Banquets also offer a quiet space for wakes. There is no venue hire, just a charge for food, non-alcoholic drinks (teas, coffees, sparkling water, juices) and basic red and white wine, bottled lager and prosecco. All with an Italian deli, antipasto style of finger food or a sit-down dinner. There are plenty of breakout places for people to sit quietly on comfortable sofas and remember loved ones. There is a large flat screen TV to show family photographs if required. We can cater for both formal or informal gatherings depending on the family's wishes. There is a play area in the garden for children for the summer months and an indoor kids TV/playroom with board games and lego to keep younger children entertained.
Monday afternoons to Thursday afternoons only.
