For any events, baby showers, 1st birthdays, 21'st's and over, family get togethers, wedding parties, divorce parties or wakes etc, here is the information for you:

Our lovely garden room is available to hire for most types of events, please do send us an email via our website with your enquiry, please give us as much information as possible with what you are looking for once you have read the below information as this will help us to answer your enquiry fully.

As we are a challenge 25 venue, we cannot host 18th birthday parties. Our license is 14+ years of age for the pub but as our events are in our garden room we do allow a very limited number of children for any events, but this is only for events up to and including Sunday the 14th of April 2024, unfortunately any dates after this children will not be permitted for any events until late September once the garden is closed. Our room capacity is a maximum of 85 people and is the perfect for a minimum of 60.

For the room itself there is a hire fee of £250 for all events, this is for the tables, which will have on white tablecloths (we do ask that care be taken with these, more so with certain foods, if any of the table cloths are unsalvageable then this will incur a charge which will be taken from your deposit), the chairs, the white or pink chair covers which can also come with a choice of a coloured bow on each chair, (so we can always match the colour scheme of any event), the staff and clean down at the end of the night.

For every event there will be a minimum spend which is dependent on when the event is and for how long, this isn't what you need to be spending yourself but what needs to go behind the bar.

When the garden is open you can have tables reserved for you on the patio and on the lawn, there will be a cost involved which all depends on how many you would like. In the summer months if you wanted full exclusivity of the garden then this will be a much higher minimum spend with 50% being paid for up front.

Once you have had a meeting with us to go through all of the details we will then require a deposit of £250.00 which will be returned to you within 48 hours after the event once the room has been checked over for any damage and the table cloths for any stains that we cannot get out. The date will be held for 1 week after our meeting, if we do not hear back from you then the date will be released. If there are to be children at your event within the dates that they are allowed, then their will be a higher deposit to be paid. The signed terms and conditions will be emailed too you once the deposit has been paid.

We do have a lot of contacts for cakes, balloons, light up numbers, singers etc if you did want any of the mentioned then we can put you in touch with them if you so wish, also most of these are local to us. We also have our own in house DJ who is brilliant, respectful to us and our neighbours and does 99% of our events, if you would like to use his services we will see if he is free and put you both in touch with each other.

Nothing is to go on the walls whatsoever and absolutely no table sprinkles or confetti of any kind are to be used! If they are then there will be a cleanup charge of £100 which will come off your deposit.

For the food side of things Angelo our chef has designed a menu for you, as its all made fresh to order and you wanted something that isn't on the menu then we are sure he can make it for you. If you would prefer to cater your event yourself then there is a fee of £100 to use our tables, table cloths and clean down of food. If you do cater your own event you will also be responsible for your own napkins and plates, if you would like us to supply these then there will be a charge.

For the drinks it can be a cash bar from the start, or you can do a welcome drink or an amount behind the bar, the choice is completely yours. If people are paying for themselves then you will need to let them know that it is a cash only bar.

Time wise the room can be yours from anytime, the music has to be off by 11:30pm, the bar stops serving in the room at 11:30pm and the room is to be vacated by 11:40pm, the main bar stops serving at midnight on Fridays and Saturdays so once people have left the room itself they can then have one for the road before we close by 00:20, these times are earlier for Sunday to Thursday events.

If you or anyone else wants to come in earlier with any photos, decorations or balloons etc you are more than welcome to, the only things we cannot have is sprinkles on the tables or anything on the walls.

Like any licensed premises the 4 licensing objectives will need to be adhered to.

We do not tolerate any form of abuse or harassment to our staff or other customers, if this happens then this can result in your event being stopped immediately and you forfeiting your deposit.

We can also host wakes of any size from 10+ people, we have our private public bar area which is perfect up to 25 people and then we have the garden room for any numbers above this. For the catering we can put you in touch with people for this or you can do this for yourself, depending on the amount of attendees we can also do an unlimited tea and coffee station for you, the price will be confirmed with you at the meeting.
