Detailed facility info


The room offers great facilities to make your event even more enjoyable.  You can make use of any of the following

Audio  and Visual

  • You can connect to our sound system using a Mini jack to standard phono cable.  This is suitable for background level music or presentations.  You are welcome to arrange to come in ahead of your function to test the equipment.

    This is not suitable for DJs and bands, they would need to supply their own sound system.

  • The room has 7 TVs.  You can connect your device to all of the TVs using a standard HDMI cable

  • We can supply a microphone for speeches.  We do charge £100 deposit for this, which is fully refundable on the return of the microphone.

  • There is background music available to play as standard in the room.  This will have set playlists that you are unable to change.  If you want to play your own playlist you can do so by connecting your own device to the system.

Other Facilities

  • There is a small smoking area immediately outside of the room.

  • Air conditioning

  • We offer session and premium beers on draught together with an extensive range of bottled beers, wines, spirits & cocktails.

  • You can provide your own decorations.  If you need help finding a provider we can recommend people we have used before and have been very happy with their service.

    Please do not stick anything to walls where there is wallpaper and ensure all gas canisters must be removed by yourself or your supplier.

    Please discuss access requirements with us direct, we will always aim to accommodate the needs of your suppliers but always check with us first that the room is available.

    Some suppliers collect at the end of the party and some need their products stored and collected the next day.  It is important that your supplier knows that whilst we will take every care to secure their products we take no responsibility for anything left.  Collection can be arranged from 10am the next day.  If the room is in use the next day we may need to move any products to another location to allow for cleaning and set up for the next event.
