Our Facilities

Function room

Our large indoor function room can seat up to 160 people. It is ideal for big parties but if you don’t require the whole space, it can be divided to create two smaller, separate rooms.


Make the most of the sunshine and have your event outside! The Cornwallis Suite garden is fantastic for exclusive summer weddings and parties. You can get married under our lovely gazebo and opt for a delicious fully-catered BBQ or hog roast.

As you enter The Cornwallis Suite, you’ll find a charming lounge area with comfortable sofas. There is also a fully licensed bar stocked with all your favourite drinks to
take advantage of.


The Cornwallis Suite has accessibility and convenience front of mind. We have a car park for 80 cars, with easy access for coaches.
