How we can help you host your private event


We love to host private parties, celebrations & events of all kinds using the higgledy piggledy layout of our historic inn to best effect inc creating chill out areas and space for a band, DJ & dancing with either a sit down Meal, a buffet or outside catering such as Hog Roasts. You can even decorate the place to suit your event or theme. Just talk to us about your planned date, numbers and initial ideas.... Call 01572 722 135 or click the MAKE A BOOKING button to email us...
