Frequently Asked Questions (or FAQ's!)
These questions cover the 'most asked' queries by hirers of our hall. If the information you require is not mentioned here then please use the the 'Contact Us' page and we will do our best to answer it for you.
They are not intended to cover every area of your potential booking as a full terms and conditions document will be agreed between you and us at the point of confirming your booking.
What rooms do you have for hire?
There are 2 main rooms. A large main room or hall approximately 50 feet by 30 and a side room which is about 15 feet square.
Is there a kitchen?
Yes. We have a fully fitted good sized kitchen which is ideal for preparing buffets or full banquets. The kitchen will always be hired in conjunction with either or both of the main rooms.
Is the hall suitable for conferences?
It's perfect. Indeed we have had up to 120 seated delegates in the main hall with presentations made from the excellent and full-width raised stage. Refreshments for the attendees have then been able to be prepared in the separate kitchen and served in the side 'meeting' room which keeps all the elements of the event away from each other and yet still easy to access.
Is the site 'visitor friendly'?
We pride ourselves on being inclusive, not exclusive. There is plenty of parking, easy access to and from the building, full facilities and all in an area of outstanding beauty.
How many people can you fit in?
We have a capacity of 150 but that includes everyone! Most of the wedding receptions that we host cater for between 100 and 120 guests seated.
Is there enough equipment?
We have ample seating and adaptable tables to comfortable accommodate guests or delegates in any arrangement you desire. There is Wi-Fi access for free via the Memorial Club next door and a comprehensive lighting setup which will afford any visiting speaker or entertainer ample coverage.
Do I need to bring anything?
Wedding receptions, in particular, will need to bring their own choice of decorations, linen and other 'meal related' equipment. Obviously this is a personal choice item and we cannot cater for everyone. Except for that, just bring your good selves and enjoy.
Is there a bar?
Our attached private members club is your expected choice for alcohol etc. You cannot (unless by prior and explicit agreement with us) bring or consume your own alcohol anywhere on our site. Please see your booking form for full conditions.
When is the earliest I can hire from?
Within reason, we can provide you with access to the site from 7am.
When is the latest we can hire until?
You and all your guests must be off site by half past midnight. No music can be ongoing after 11.30 p.m. as we respect all our neighbours in our beautiful village.
Are there any pricing bands?
There are weekend and weekday rates with bands roughly equivalent to morning, afternoon and evening
How flexible are you?
We will work with you to get you the best deal that means you and your guests have the best time possible when you come.
What about opening up and closing down?
We can meet you before the event to sort out details but there is a keylock with a code that you will be given so that you can gain independent access as the premises are not routinely occupied
