Detailed Description

The Hammer and Pincers is a traditional and charming country pub. We can hold wedding receptions for 10 guests to 200. Choose from our intimate dining room to our giant Tipis or white canvas marquee. Invite your guests to bring their caravans and tents and camp out in our field & make a weekend of it ! We love helping our customers to have the reception that they want. We love a great party, we have had the pleasure of being involved with over 50 events the last 3 years and can share lots of tips and ideas. Food is our passion, we can provide anything from a 2/3/4 course formal/informal sit down meal, afternoon tea, buffets, BBQ's and Hog Roasts. We can supply your welcome drinks, toast and a paid bar for your guests. For 2018 we will have our Caravan and campsite up and running with room for 20 caravans and 20 tents - why not have a mini festival ! We are flexible with budgets, just talk to us.
