We have a fantastic team of chef’s in our kitchen, catering can only be arranged by them, we don’t allow external caterers, but with food quality like ours we won’t disappoint! Please let the kitchen know about any allergens/intolerances prior to the event so we can make sure we can cater for those needs.

If you want to bring in your own drinks for reception drinks or a toast, please arrange this with the manager. A corkage charge applies.

DJs / Live Music / Entertainment

You can bring in your own live music/DJ and entertainment providing they can provide proof of Public liability insurance and PAT testing certificates. Our premises are in a residential area and we want to be respectful of our neighbour’s, therefore we have a noise limiter to ensure music isn’t played too loud. Please be aware, that under no circumstances is dry ice/haze permitted as it will activate our smoke alarms.


Smoking is not permitted indoors, on the patio or anywhere other than the designated smoking area outside or in the sheltered Gazebo down the steps to the left.


It is illegal for under 18s to attempt to purchase or consume alcohol. The club therefore operates a challenge 25 policy. An under 18 purchasing or consuming alcohol can result in prosecution of members of staff, or members of the committee and could lead to the loss of the club’s license to sell alcohol. The club reserves the right, at any time to request proof of age from any person purchasing or consuming alcohol on the premises. We want you to enjoy yourself, how ever it is against the law to serve anyone who staff deem to be too intoxicated and the club reserves the right to refuse service to anybody who is too drunk.


Due to the club being in a residential area, patio doors must be kept locked from 10.30pm and the area closed. People may only go outside to make use of the smoking area and drinks must not be taken outside after this time.

Please keep an eye on your belongings. The club accepts no responsibility for any liability, loss, claim, damage, cost, expense or injury arising out of the Hirer (or the Hirer’s guests)leaving any item/sor property on the Premises.

3. Extreme Food Allergies: if someone in your party suffers from a food allergy that is so severe that the slightest exposure to the substance in question could cause a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction (for example where a reaction may be triggered other than by actually eating the foodstuff – such as by smell alone or by minute trace elements) you must advise us in writing of the severe nature of the allergy at the time of booking so that we can discuss the risks with you and confirm whether you wish to proceed with your booking. If you fail to advise us of an extreme food allergy at the point of booking or if you proceed with your booking in circumstances where we have explained to you the risks that might be present, we will have no liability to you in the event of an incident.
