We would be delighted to host your special event.  Catering for functions such as wakes, parties, anniversaries or business events, use our distinctive and historical building alongside our generous and peaceful planted walled gardens and outdoor patio, to provide you and your guests a spectacular backdrop for a relaxed occasion.

The whole pub can be booked for a wedding to take advantage of this beautiful setting.

  • Let our team of chefs work with you to tailor a menu to your wishes.
  • Work with your very own wine connoisseur to taste from our selection of wine at The Bell or seek out a bottle suiting your palette and price point.
  • Then combine with your choice of entertainment and our well stocked bar to create your unique experience.
  • We can help organise extra touches such as decorations and flowers through local suppliers.
  • Our large front garden or our rear patio can each hold a marquee for up to 80 people.


For more intimate celebrations, you can choose the restaurant having space up to 40 people for live music and buffets or more formal dining any time of the year.

If you enjoy our food and service you may also consider us to meet your outside catering needs.
