We can cater for a maximum of 20 people seated at one dining table or up to 30 people for a more informal buffet style layout. Room hire £75.00.


The Talbot Room

The Talbot Room is a similar size to the Cavendish Room without the adjoining lounge. The maximum number for one dining table is 20 people or up to 24 people for a more informal buffet layout. Room Hire £50.00.
