Up to 180 guests
Way back in 2011 we hosted our first wedding – our very own! At the moment our family stood on their chairs waving white napkins and singing along to some superb singing waiters we knew the house loved to party just as much as we did.

In 2013 we formally opened our doors to weddings, events and parties, and we’ve been having a blast doing so ever since. So much so that updating our website has fallen woefully down the list of things to do!


So for now – please visit our facebook or instagram pages to get a great up to date view of what we’ve been up to recently.


Here are a few key points to know if we might be right for you:


A maximum of 20 events in any one year, so we really get to know you and that’s one of the best parts of sharing our home! Ceremony on site, or local church, either are fine by us. Want support in the organisation? No problem, we are here to help in any way we can.


Catering is via our preferred suppliers who are listed below, prices vary so pick up the phone give them a call and they’ll be fab at helping you plan all things food related.
