Private Dinner Party
The Pasfield House allows clients to hold a seated dinner for up to 50 people in the Capitol View Reception Room and utilize the remained of the main floor for entertaining purpose. We work with clients to select the best functional room layout based on our experience in adjusting to attendance estimates. Clients can allow their guests to make use of the gathering areas outside: the Front Porch Veranda, English Topiary Garden or Courtyard Fountain Patio; during the winter months however where there is no opportunity for guests to utilize the outdoors. The management does set limitations for dinner capacity; our experience is valuable to assure a consistent attention to detail and quality of serve is at the highest levels. The 50 person limit estimate on dinner attendance capacities take for granted that the host wishes that all the dinner guests are seated together in the same room.
Maximum dinner capacities can be raised modestly in good weather with the utilization of the outside for a opening cocktail reception gathering, but it should be noted that glassware, plate ware and even restroom capacities still require limits for us to assure excellent service.
