Apologies if we have been a bit quiet of late, we have been working really hard behind the scenes here at Woburn House to bring online new spaces, day delegate packages and menus for you.
Firstly, I am very excited to announce the launch of a new space at Woburn House. Sakura Café is a light and bright open space on the 1st Floor of Woburn House providing fantastic views over Tavistock Square. The space is a great place to see the changing seasons of the park from the snow and bare trees in January, to our favourite, the blossom and flowering of spring. Sakura, is the Japanese word for cherry blossom as the space has fantastic views of the cherry blossom memorial tree to commemorate the lives lost in the Hiroshima bombing in 1945. The tree comes out in the most stunning pink blossom in spring which you may be lucky enough to see from the cafe.
The space is equipped with free to vend bean to cup coffee machines so your delegates can get those all important espressos, lattes and cappuccinos. Fruit and herbal teas, decaf options and filtered water. Throughout the day the café is stocked with tasty snacks to fuel your delegates such as fruit, pastries, biscuits and sweet treats. At lunchtime we serve a 2 course fork lunch in the café giving your delegates chance to break out from your meeting room and stretch their legs and enjoy lunch networking with colleagues overlooking Tavistock Square. The café is accessible from 8am – 4pm every day giving your guests somewhere to have those all important side conversations or Teams/Zoom calls throughout the day. All our smaller rooms are now sold with access to this space with the unlimited catering package for a day delegate rate starting from as little as £70 + VAT.
We have recently launched and implemented our new menus. We have focused on improving the sustainability of our food whilst improving guests experience and food offer. Our new menus provide tasty options for all guests with a choice of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options available every day. They have been designed with local and seasonal produce at the forefront, and we are working hard with our suppliers to ensure the ingredients we use are sourced sustainably. We are offering a sustainable menu which offers a purely vegan and vegetarian menu packed full of flavour. We can also replace biscuits with fruit during your breaks should you wish. We are very conscious of our carbon footprint so we have looked at the food miles of our ingredients, food wastage and number of deliveries to our venue and we have managed to reduce these things by around 50%! As always, our food is prepared freshly each day by our in house chef ensuring that your food is not only fresh and flavoursome but also flexible to cater for those all important dietary requirements. Our menu is concentrated on chef’s choice options to ensure we can source seasonal locally sourced produce and create your delegates the best food possible.
We also have a new reception and fine dining menu which we are really excited about. We can offer nibbles, canapes and bowl food to have alongside the ever popular unlimited drinks packages. With the new opening of the Sakura Café, we now have another space for you to host those all important dinners and receptions. Why not host your conference in Woburn Hall then move upstairs to the Sakura Café for your conference dinner? We have a list of a wide variety of local hotels we can recommend should your conference require that residential element.
