Catering & Event Policies

Attendance

We request the catering department be informed by 12 noon, 72 hours prior to your event to guarantee the attendance at your function. Functions held on Mondays and Tuesdays require confirmation by 12 noon on the Thursday prior to the event. If the guaranteed number has not been received, the billing will reflect the higher of the number of persons for which the function was originally booked or the number of guests that actually attended. The Rideau Club will prepare 3% more than the guarantee to a maximum of 10 people. Guarantee increases within 72 hours are subject to a $10.00 per person surcharge. The Club cannot guarantee the same menu option will be available.

Attire

When attending a private event, the dress requirement is Casual Business Attire unless specified otherwise by the host.
It shall be the responsibility of the Member to ensure that their Guests adhere to the Club’s dress code.

Cancellation

As per our cancellation policy, members will be charged for private functions which are not canceled 72 hours prior to the time of the event.

Closing of club

In accordance with the House Rules of the Club, the Club is closed at midnight. The last call is to be made at 11:40 p.m. Extra labour and transportation will be charged after midnight.

Conduct

Members are responsible at all times for the conduct of their Guests.
