The Hall

The Hall is bright and airy, decorated with neutral colours. There is a large selection of modern trestle tables, older wooden ones and smaller tables to seat four. There are 120 comfortably upholstered dining chairs and two highchairs. The lighting in the Hall is adaptable, with the option of full overhead lighting or wall mounted, softer lights for a gentler ambience. The sound system can be switched to amplify music at either end of the Hall or throughout the space.  There is an induction loop installed for the hard of hearing. Broadband wi-fi is installed. In addition to the Gents and Ladies loos, there is a spacious disabled facility with a baby changing bench and a potty and step stool for little ones.


The large kitchen is exceptionally well laid out and is of a professional quality. There are two large cookers, a warming cupboard, fridge and freezer, microwave, toaster, water boiler. It is well equipped with a wide range of catering pots and pans, trays and serving dishes. For diners, there is ample white china place settings for 100. Having such a well-equipped kitchen enables either professional caterers or self-caterers to produce anything from a party tea or buffet to a multi-course meal.

Ideal for smaller events, the Reading Room is simply furnished with upholstered chairs and small tables seating four. It boasts an original Victorian wooden floor and is warmed by a wood pellet stove. There is a small, well-equipped kitchen with a fridge and microwave. It also has a separate WC. The Reading Room hosts a drop-in cafe on the first and third Monday of every month, with tea, coffee and homemade cakes supplied by a team of volunteer bakers. The cafe is open to all comers.
