Silver service training

Courses run every other week, all year around in London, Antibes (South of France) as well as in Norfolk on our grand estate dating back to the 16th century.

Many people really enjoy the sense of history and even grandeur that comes with Silver Service dining and in the right setting it can really add style to an event or function.

Silver service waiting originates from the manors, country seats and fine houses of the British middle and upper classes of centuries gone by.

Referred to by the French as ‘English Service’ or ‘Service Anglais’ silver service actually describes the process of serving diners from a ‘silver’ service dish to the diners plate, rather than the more common practice of serving the plate to the diner.

The silver service waiter or waitress must be well acquainted with the appropriate etiquette and technique.

Silver Service Training will teach your staff the techniques and etiquette to enable them to provide the best possible service to your customers.
