Full Description
This Grade II* Victorian listed building can accommodate from big to more intimate ceremonies and receptions. Our Main Hall (our largest room), for instance, can accommodate up to 700 guests for a ceremony, 500 for an informal reception and 300 for dining. Our St Aldate’s room, instead, can hold up to 45 guests for a ceremony and 30 guests for dining. We pride ourselves on presentation, service and quality. That’s why we will only have one wedding ceremony in the venue at any one time so that you and your guests can have our undivided attention. In addition, if you want to make your ceremony extra special, you can hire our Father Willis Organ or piano. And, for receptions with live bands, we can offer staging too. (Prices above are for ceremonies only.)
