    In addition to our full bar service we can supply the following specialist bars


    Our gin menu is designed to give you different taste experiences from this fashionable spirit. There are thousands of new craft gins out there, and we try to give you a taste of some of the lesser known and flavoursome alternatives, to bring you gin varieties from dry, citrus, aromatic, spiced, complex, savoury and sweet


    Our specialist margarita slush bar is a real winner. Used on its own or as an addition to a traditional bar this children’s favourite is for ‘adults only’. Traditional lime, raspberry, watermelon, tangerine mango, pink grapefruit, pineapple, you choose - we slush!!!


    We think our carefully balanced selections comprising both quirky and classic, traditional and edgy, high class and laid back, has something for everyone.


    Not rhum based cocktails but the finest rhums – white, golden, navy and spiced complemented by a range of botanicals and unusual mixers including lime, apple, cranberry, cider, mint & ginger that bring an innovative & contemporary view to this most traditional of drinks


    The cutting-edge fusion of food and drink, are your guests drinking food or eating drinks? Our hot new menus deliver a taste sensation which excites, challenges and stimulates the palate.


    Affogato, Italian for ‘drowned’. Like most great Italian dishes, the affogato is a lesson in simplicity. The marriage of two delicious essentials: espresso and gelato, 'drowned' in Frangelico, Amaretto or your favourite spirit. Affogato is the perfect solution to the post-meal coffee-or-dessert dilemma or that any time low-blood-sugar funk​.


    Keep the kids entertained and involved with these fruity non-alcoholic mocktails. Served in funky containers and using mint, melon, cranberry, blueberry, grenadine and tons of other great tasting ingredients our mocktails will keep the juniors ‘cool’

Where possible we remain true to our Yorkshire heritage by sourcing locally produced products

    Birra Moretti is a genuine beer produced using a traditional process that has remained almost unchanged since 1859. To produce Birra Moretti, only the highest quality raw materials are used and a particular mixture of valuable hops, that gives the beer its aroma and unique fragrance, intensifying the slight bitter flavour. It is a low fermented beer that has a golden colour, the tone of which is given by the quality of malt used. The alcoholic content is 4,6% volume that make it suitable to drink at any time of the day

    ABV: 4.6%


    For something a little different why not consider a ‘Booze Bath’ – a retro galvanised steel bath mounted on supports with a blackboard menu and filled with ice and your favourite beers wines and spirits. A ‘Booze Bath’ makes a great talking point and is visually striking


    The first reception drinks you serve should be a little special, start conversations, create excitement and build a huge sense of occasion. Great wines, cocktails, seasonal drinks, a craft beer bath, liquid canapes & superb ‘fizz’


    Prices are dependent on quality and number of drinks We can tailor make a package which suits your budget and your guests starting at £11.95 per head

    Our initial quotations are based on the following drinks per person:

    1 x Reception Drink (Prosecco/Kir/Lager)

    ½ Bottle of Wine (2 Glasses)

    1 x Toast

    Additional drinks can be added at £3.00 per head each


    Classic meet & greet but much more Than The ‘King of Fizz’ - Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, Saumur, Cremant de Loire, Spumante, Blanquette

    Ask about our English & New World sparklers


    Instead of or as well as the traditional sparkler, why not try a seasonal cocktail or better still a signature cocktail, a unique & original drink that expresses the nature of the person or establishment creating it. Our signature cocktails often incorporate local ingredients and culture. Our mixologists design cocktails which perfectly reflect your personality and can be served in quirky glasses or mason jars


    Choosing the perfect wine for your event is influenced heavily by your personal taste. Whether you love reds, whites or rosés, all three are always in style. So, keep it simple, choose a white wine that's light and refreshing and stick with a red that's a little bit on the crisp and fruity side. Both can go well with a variety of food.

    As long as the wines offer pleasant flavours that appeal to a large crowd, you should be good to go

    CRAFT BEER TASTES BETTER The No.1 reason why you should drink craft beer is because craft beer tastes much better than mass produced alternatives. Craft beer tastes much better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing...
    What do you get if you blast juniper, coriander, camomile flowers and a chunk of meteorite into near space and then distil the ingredients back on Earth? A gin, of course. And what about if you distil whey and add a bundle of Irish woodruff? Or Cornish clotted cream? Still gin. How about if you...

    I hired CRAFTBAR for our wedding & they did an outstanding job . I would recommend other people use them for their party or wedding. Extremely professional & they provided a fantastic Gin Bar as well as a fully stocked Pay Bar. Thank you so much guys and gals!

    Maria M

    Absolutely brilliant, everything was organised and perfect. I couldn’t have asked for better. Guests loved the craft ales both draught, bottled/canned and both barmen were really knowledgeable and offered great advice. It was a great night - highly recommended

    Martin S

    We hired Craftbar for my dad’s 70th birthday party. Tim was fantastic behind the bar and conjured up some really special drinks for our guests. There were a couple of guests with medical issues and Craftbar covered their drinks really well – nothing was too much trouble. I can’t thank them enough

    Jean P

    Their service was fantastic from the day we first enquired right up to returning our deposit on completion without us having to ask for it Craftbar were really impressive. Communication was great and they always got back to us quickly and efficiently. The whole process was seamless and I would certainly use John and his team again in the future

    Michael A
