VAT On Food and Drink

Is there anyone who works for Her Majesty Tax Office who can clarify the VAT charges on food and Drinks at Weddings?

Generally VAT is not included on foods.

I have looked at HMCustoms website and only found a works order on food which applies to Hot Food only. Please advise.

    I don't work for the tax office but I thought VAT was payable at venues on everything. You just have to check the price you have been quoted by your venue if it includes vat or not, if it doesn't you have to remember to add it on.

    in my opinion, it's more of a service that the venue is providing rather than seeing it as food and drink.
