Sorry but we no longer are taking bookings or hiring our venue out for weddings.

I want to book outside on the lawn, what happens if the weather is wet?

The lawn area is weather dependent. In the case that windy or wet conditions prevent you from sitting outside we will try to accommodate you inside if room is available.

We are celebrating a birthday! Can I bring my own cake? 

If you are bringing a cake to celebrate we do not charge a fee. However you must cut & serve it yourself, please provide your own plates/cutlery/napkins for this.
