Al-Farid

3 Cathedral Yard, EX1 1HJ, Exeter, Devon
Umar ibn ‘Al-Farid’ was an Arab poet, his poetry is entirely sufic, and he was esteemed mystic poet of the Arabs.

Our head chef has created a thoughtful menu that delights the taste buds. A firm favourite is the mezze, an array of small succulent dishes. The mezze comprised both cold and hot dishes and offers a wealth of colour flavour, texture and aroma.


A choice of traditional Moroccan dessert is an offer to complements the meal, expect Baklava a sweet pastry, and Mahlabia, rice pudding with rose water.


Also the drink menu is Moroccan national drink, Arak, which has an aniseed base, and a variety of fruit juices. To finish your meal you cannot miss out on one of our Moroccan coffee, flavoured wit natural cardamom, cinnamon or rose water.


No Moroccan meal is complete without smoking an authentic hooka pipe. Each day the water pipes are packed with fresh flavoured tobaccos, choose between apples, strawberry, cherry, rose, grape or fruit cocktail.

Guildhall Complex

Lancaster Rd,, PR1 1HT, Preston, Lancashire
In October 2014, the ownership of Preston Guild Hall was transferred from Preston City Council to the Rigby Group of companies, under the directorship of local private entrepreneur Simon Rigby. It is an exciting new chapter in Preston’s entertainment scene and there are ambitious plans in place to elevate the complex back to its previous former glory.

In addition to the programming and event developments to re-establish the 716 seater Charter Theatre and 2034 seater Grand Hall, Simon and his team have already started to invest heavily in the wider complex. The arcade has seen several new popular additions such as Bonds coffee shop and the Review Wine and Cocktail bar.


Furthermore, the Grand Hall Foyer has undergone a major programme of refurbishment to create a brand new multifunctional space know as LiVe!, creating the perfect space for intimate gigs, pre- and post-show drinks and for dancing the night away!


The newest development is the purpose-built indoor/outdoor terrace area which has helped to modernise the original balcony area. This latest addition provides our guests with stunning views of the surrounding Grade 1 listed buildings and architecture, such as the Harris Museum, whilst they dine with us, and also boasts a retractable roof canopy for the summer months!

The Barn at Herons Farm

Herons Farm, Pangbourne, Berkshire, RG8 8QA, Pangbourne, Berkshire
Up to 150 guests
We absolutely love weddings - there's nothing we like better than assisting you to achieve the look, feel and ambience of the wedding reception of your dreams, and we strive to help you to create an event which is personal to you both. You can look forward to your family and friends joining you in this remarkable place to celebrate your special day, confident that it will be memorable and hugely enjoyed by all. This beautiful and romantic tythe barn is flanked by stables and stable cottages, and the setting is amongst courtyards, gardens, woods and paddocks, making it an exquisite, unique and unusual backdrop for a memorable country wedding reception. Suitable for an informal 'Summer garden party' style reception, or a more formal and chic celebratory event, the interior of the barn looks gorgeous when decorated and its quirky features such as the oak beams and pillars when embellished with flowers, gauzes and garlands create a truly romantic setting, and the grounds can be set out to different specifications.

A walled garden frames the north edge of the side garden where large flat lawns are surrounded by trees, fields and flower borders. When dotted with garden tents and gazebos it is a lovely option for an al fresco summer wedding. We make the farm's own array of summer garden furniture available to you for the lawn areas, and you can choose more formal table arrangements for dining if you wish.


Imagine yourselves being chauffeur driven to your reception through a private tree lined avenue, then sweeping into the circular driveway in front of the charming red bricked farm house, finally to stop by the wrought iron courtyard gates to be greeted by your guests, who have been enjoying Devon cream teas from mixed vintage china teacups whilst awaiting your arrival. Imagine too, lawn games being played till dusk until the garden lights come on as people relax and drink in the atmosphere of your wedding. Unforgettable!
