We are licenced and can offer bar facilities for parties of 50+ adults, draught lager can be supplied for larger gatherings. Our hall is high enough to accommodate a bouncy castle for children’s parties. The hall is ideal for regular weekly activities, children’s birthday parties, family celebrations, social/ charity afternoon teas and events and community events, and all types of meetings. We offer the room for hire most days and evenings and our prices compare very favourably with any other in the local area.
