70th Birthday Meal – “ Thank you for providing the opportunity for such a wonderful celebration for my mum’s 70th Birthday. The Venetian Room was perfect for our group of 6 and the food delicious. We were very appreciative of all members of staff with whom we had contact with and found them very welcoming and so professional in this challenging time 


October 2020

Whatever your event – birthday or engagement party, wedding anniversary, corporate hospitality or Christmas party – we’ll help to make it special.  


We have six private dining rooms to choose from, or you can book exclusive use of our Indigo Restaurant. All are conveniently located on the ground floor with easy accessibility and can accommodate from four to 150 guests. You and your guests can also enjoy the use of our Indigo lounge and bar throughout your event.

Whilst according with government guidelines, 3 of our private dining rooms are ideal for occasions of up to 6 guests seated at one large round table suitably decorated. The Eden room is ideal for dining for up to 30 guests whilst according to current government guidelines.

The cuisine will be of an AA Rosette standard comparable to that which is offered in our highly regarded Indigo Restaurant. The menus offered will where possible be based upon the seasonal menus being offered in Indigo. In addition, there are a series of standard menus available which feature more traditional dishes which will always appeal to the majority of guests present at any celebratory occasion. Any guests with special dietary requirements we will be pleased to cater for in addition with prior notice.


To ensure your event goes smoothly and all your bespoke requirements are met, one of our managers, Richard or Simon, will meet with you beforehand. They’ll be your sole point of contact for the planning. And on the day of your event, our Restaurant Manager will be present to ensure that everything is exactly as you wish. 

Looking for a festive venue for your Christmas party? We can host private lunchtime or evening Christmas parties for 10-120 guests in one of our festively decorated private dining rooms. You can also book exclusive use of Indigo Restaurant, subject to numbers. 

Christmas Parties


Looking to get the festive season really buzzing? On weekday and weekend evenings throughout December, we host Christmas party nights with a disco in Indigo Restaurant.  Why not book a table where a number of groups dine in at their own private tables.  Dinner starts at 7.30 pm, allowing plenty of time for dancing to our resident DJ later. Last orders at the bar will be at 11.30 pm and the disco will finish at midnight.


A select number of weekend evenings are available in January for post-Christmas parties at discounted rates and can include some complimentary wine or bar drinks. So if we don’t have availability for your preferred date in December, or you’d prefer to wait until the New Year, you can book a January date with a discount. Please contact Richard or Simon to discuss availability.

There will be around 100 guests altogether, ensuring a real festive party atmosphere. Again, the menu for our Christmas party nights needs to be pre-ordered at least 10 days before. 


We held a party for 30 guests. The food was excellent, the staff lovely, the owners Richard and Simon, friendly and professional. The hotel has been in the same family for many years, the brothers have an up to date approach to the business which results in an enjoyable experience for all ages in updated surroundings.

We were a little worried that the restaurant standard might not be matched for a larger dining party, however, it was excellent and we can highly recommend for groups.


May 2019

Unlike most festive venues, we don’t restrict your guests to your dining table during your meal or party. Instead, they’re welcome to make full use of Indigo Lounge and Bar before and during your event. 


If you’re planning a private party, you can choose from our Christmas menu, and we’ll be delighted to cater for special dietary requirements with advance notice. The menu needs to be pre-ordered at least 10 days before your party. We’ll ask for each guest’s choice of dishes and a seating plan, if appropriate. For private dining, you’re welcome to organise your own music or entertainment, or we can help arrange this for you. 


If you or any of your guests would like to stay over at the hotel after your event, we can arrange preferential rates for you. (The rate offered will be dependent upon the date of your party.)
