Date - If you have a particular date in mind for
your wedding or party it is always advisable to book
early. If you are flexible with dates then please
call us as bookings can always be made at relatively
short notice. This is particularly the case if you
are considering a Saturday or Bank Holiday weekend.
Numbers - We can cater for up to 80 people seated
or 150 in total inside the venue. If you are considering
a marquee to take advantage of the grounds outside,
then more guests can be accommodated.
Timings - When planning your wedding day allow
half an hour for the civil ceremony, 1¼ hours for the
drinks, 2½ hours for the meal and then a further ½ hour
for the speeches.
- There is a selection of suggested menus that we
provide. Please see the menus listed. Guests with
special dietary requirements will be catered for separately
although we will need to know their numbers in advance.
Children - Children can either eat from the main menu
or else will be catered for separately.
Wines - We have a selection of wines for you
to choose from which are suitable for all palates.
A wine list is enclosed and prices start from £12.50
Alternatively you may wish to consider bringing your
own wines. Corkage will be charged.

at £3 a bottle

person and can be served with or without chocolates.
(Chocolate can be supplied by the bridal party or

Music - If you wish to have music at your event,
you are welcome to have a disco or a band. This is
something that we can organise or you are welcome
to arrange yourself.
Bar - A cash bar can operate throughout the
night. Alternatively, a bar account can be set up
whereby guests can order drinks which can be charged
to your account. This money must be paid in advance.
Cake - You are welcome to arrange your own
cake to be delivered. Cake cutting is usually carried
out after the dessert or indeed the cake can be the
desert. There is an additional charge made for cutting
the cake or serving wedding cake of £2 per head.
