Frequently Asked Questions (or FAQ's!)

These questions cover the 'most asked' queries by hirers of the function suite. 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 is 1 main suite. It comprises of a large main room approximately 70’ (21.5m) by 34’ (10.5m) and a kitchen (optional hire)

which is about 20’ (6m) x 15’ (4.5m). The function suite also has it’s own toilet access including disabled access and baby

changing facilities.

Is the hall suitable for conferences? It's perfect. Indeed we have had up to 100 seated delegates in the function suite 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 through the serving hatch. 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 120 but that includes everyone! Most of the events that we host cater for have between 100 and 120 with

seating for 90 guests using our standard layout.

Is there enough equipment? We have ample seating and adaptable tables to accommodate guests or delegates in any arrangement you desire. There is fast fibre Wi-Fi access for free and a basic stage lighting setup and disco dancefloor lights 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? There is a bar which is exclusive for you and your guests. 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. Can I have Karaoke at my Party? No. We are allowed all types of Live music and DJ’s with Disco equipment however Karaoke requires a special Licence from the authorities…. Which thankfully we haven’t got.

When is the earliest I can hire from?

Within reason and by prior arrangement 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 1:00am. No music can be ongoing after midnight as we respect all our neighbours in our beautiful village. Are there any bands or hire times? You will see on our prices / booking page that we hire our function suite in two bands. That is not to say that you cannot (and most events do this) combine the bands to hire for a full day or weekend. How flexible are you? Our aim is to fit you in. 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. We are as flexible and sensible as you are. What about opening up and closing down? Our manager Andrew (07711290975) and events co-ordinator Joan (01772 616800) will be on hand to greet you upon arrival and open up. They will then fully explain what to do whilst on site and when you are ready to leave. Standard Seating Plan
