Outside Events

Need an outside bar and/or catering for an event? The Volunteer Inn provides a flexible service to meet your specific requirements.

The Volunteer has provided bar hire and outside catering for a variety of events including weddings, birthdays, fun days and anniversary parties, at home or a location of your choice.

We also support local community groups including Carnival and Ottery St Mary Scouts by providing bar hire free of charge.

Bar hire

Landlord Mike will organise the bar for you – if you’re selling alcohol rather than giving it away, he will also sort out the licence for you.

Options include pre-buying the alcohol and running the bar yourself. Alternatively, we’ll supply the alcohol and run the bar, and once we reach profit level, you will receive cashback on the hire charge.

Outside catering

Landlady Jacqui is your point of call for outside catering. Simply meet with Jacqui to discuss your event and she will price up a menu for you, either on a per head or overall cost basis.

We provide this service for any type of menu including hot, cold, buffet and sit down, and all dietary requirements.  As far as possible, dishes are homemade.

To discuss either bar hire or outside catering, contact us.
