We can offer you the choice of either the Lounge or Small Function Room. Both areas are tastefully decorated and the building benefits from disabled toilets, an easy access ramp, sun terrace and large private car park. There is no charge for the use of either room. Bookings can be made through your funeral director or directly with us.
All prices are exclusive of 20% vat, if you book with us directly we will pay the vat for you therefore the price you see is the price you pay. You can add platters or hot food dishes to any of our menus. We are licensed from 10am and available for bookings Monday to Sunday.

We are a very popular choice of venue and families return to us, as they are assured of a compassionate and professional service with quality catering at sensible prices.

All food is prepared fresh on the day for your buffet. Although we would not recommend it, if you wish to take any remaining food home please bring suitable carrying containers with you. Plates and serviettes are provided per head and we therefore reserve the right to charge for subsequent additions on the day. Serving dishes are the property of the pub. Shortages & deliberate damage will be charged from your deposit. Our catering department will be pleased to discuss your requirements. A non-refundable deposit of £50 secures your booking which will then be offset against your final catering invoice. Sadly we have recently had several incidences of theft and acts of deliberate damage at receptions. To maintain the safety of other customers and staff we always refer these matters to the police.

Well behaved children are welcome at funeral receptions until 7pm.
