Parties

When planning your special event with us, we have a range of spaces to choose from depending on your event…

THE LOFT

In the eaves of our 17th Century Grade ll Listed building, we have a wonderful Loft space that works for parties of up to 55 people. It is the perfect place for large groups to enjoy a sit-down meal in a private room. For menus click here. See below for FAQs.

RESTAURANT

Our 1st Floor restaurant has two large dining rooms,seating 37 and 25 people.  They can be used separately or as a whole space for your party, in combination with the Loft the whole restaurant can seat up to 117.

As well as the party menus, we can create bespoke menus, making sure there is something for everyone.

Ale House

Our ground floor can accommodate casual parties, such as christenings or birthday celebrations & provide the perfect space for drinks and/or a buffet. You can use our Games Room (with or without our very own Bar Billiards table!) for a smaller event & have private access to our rear bar just for your party.

A range of hot & cold bar snacks, plus affordable drinks packages are available- see The Ale House,for more information and give us a call if you need to talk you through your options…

Further information / FAQ’s

ORDER IN ADVANCE?:  This is not normally needed, but we do need you to choose a party menu for use on the day.  Our staff are trained to cater to large parties and are happy to take your order after you have arrived..

o

DIETS: Our menus cater for most specific dietary requirements, so there is no need to worry in advance about common concerns like Vegetarian or Gluten free diets. It is helpful to know about Vegans and severe allergy issues in advance (although it’s not a problem to accommodate them).

DEPOSITS:  We only ask for these for a short period of the Christmas party season.

DISABLED ACCESS: The nature of our listed building prevents us from providing wheelchair access to the Restaurant and Loft.  There are wider, modern service stairs (the staff / emergency staircase) that provides easier access for those with limited mobility.  We can convert the Games Room (ground floor) into a space for parties (25 max) if required. All toilets (including Disabled) are on the ground floor.

SERVICE: We add a 10% discretionary service charge to parties.
