Stand Up Degustation

Stand-Up Degustation


The Stand-Up Degustation showcases our creative and innovative multi-course menu, without the need for tables and chairs! It’s a concept we developed in order to offer a point of difference for cocktail style functions, and it has become an incredibly popular choice amongst our clients. It’s cost effective, offers a fantastic selection of Herb’s beautifully refined creations to a standing crowd, and ensures that every guest receives their own serving of each course.


The foundation of the Stand-Up Degustation is a five course menu, however extra courses can be added at an additional cost if required. Each dish is served, enjoyed by you and your guests, then collected by our friendly and efficient wait-staff, while the following course is being freshly prepared and plated in the kitchen by your fully qualified chef. The dishes on the menu are an adaptation of their seated dining counterparts, so the flavours, textures, and presentation are rich and complex, with each item on the menu comprising multiple components. The ingredients used and the volume of each course on our menu are carefully considered in order to give the diner a complete multi-course experience.


The Stand-Up Degustation offers the same benefits of a cocktail style celebration, with the added sophistication of offering delicious and innovative plated food to your guests. They still get the chance to enjoy your chosen venue, as well as each other’s company, and the fun and relaxed atmosphere of a stand up function remains. Plus, you can rest assured that every guest receives every course of your chosen menu.

Be it a wedding, birthday, anniversary, or a stylish celebration with family and friends, our innovative, stylish and mouth-watering creations will take you and your guests on a truly enchanting food journey.
