We are currently able to host essential events only with full risk assessment and track & trace processes in place. We are also committed to ensuring the safety of all our staff and visitors.

With this in mind we have produced some guidelines for meeting bookers to issue to delegates. You can download these here.

From 12 April we will be able to resume hosting Weddings and Funeral Receptions for up to 15 people, increasing to 30 people from 17 May, all with full social distancing in place.

In line with government guidance we are hoping to resume full events from 21 June and are currently taking enquiries and reservations. All deposits are refundable or transferrable in the event of extended restrictions, so you can book in confidence with us. Click here to contact a member of the team.
