COVID Restrictions (Updated 31.10.20) Functions/Events


Following government guidelines & advice from our local authority. We would like to make you aware of the current restrictions with regards to gatherings.

Indoor gatherings should only be occurring in groups of up to 1 households (including support bubbles) while outdoor gatherings should only be occurring in groups of up to 6 people. 

We are unable to intentionally facilitate gatherings between a greater number of households than is permitt

With this in mind, we regret to inform you that, we are unable to host functions/events due to current COVID restrictions. This is most unfortunate, as events are our speciality. However, should you wish to book for a future date please fill out an enquiry form & we will be in contact. Provided your chosen date is available, we can provisionally book you in with the vision that hopefully government guidelines will have eased prior to your booking date, thus allowing us to proceed with your reservation. Please note all bookings will be subject to latest government guidelines, under constant review.

We endeavour to keep our clients updated, as and when the guidance changes.
