The hall can be divided, by a movable wall to a third or two thirds of full size to suit your event should you choose to have a cosier space. The charge remains the same for whatever configuration you require. Arrangements to have the wall in place or folded back must be made in advance of your event and must be operated by the Caretaker.
The Hall is a licensed premise, much like a pub and on no account may alcohol be brought into and consumed on the premises. There is no extra charge for using the bar facility.
The bar is fully stocked with bottled, canned and keg beers, spirits and mixers and a selection of wines: all available at reasonable prices. Alcohol can only be consumed from purchases made from the bar. Should your event require some non-standard drinks, we can source those for you - just let us know your requirements on booking the hall.
We now have the facility for you to pay by debit or credit card when making purchases at the bar.
