Adult birthday party- full buffet or nibbles?

We're planning a birthday party in a hired hall in January for around 50 people.
It starts at 7.30- would you expect a 'proper' buffet, nibbles or no food at all?
The venue will do a basic buffet (sandwiches, sausage rolls etc) for £4 a head or I can bring my own food and I cannot decide if people will really want to eat party food as they'll probably have eaten beforehand or just have crisps, nuts and maybe some dips.
Any thoughts?

last time I went to a 'grown up' party in a village hall there was a buffet, with sandwiches, sausage rolls, chicken drumstick, pizza etc and crisps and salad. that was DMIL's 70th

I'd rather have nibbles but plenty of alcohol
