Costs - Free Hire

Minimum Spend = the total amount you and your guests must spend on the occasion - this is made up of all drink & food spend.

Firstly, you are only required to hire part of the venue. Our venue can be sectioned into floors and sections to suit group size. We don’t charge a venue hire cost - we agree on a minimum spend for food and drink by yourself and guests (this is always achievable!). Get in touch, and we will create a package that serves your requirements and your pocket! We can also set a fixed party venue hire cost if a minimum spend is not suitable.

Example... Floor Hire Type Min. Spend
Other Days (Monday-Thursday & Sunday) First Floor Half Venue - upto 90 Guests £0+ (depending on the day, there may be no minimum spend!)
Friday / Saturday (half venue) First Floor Half Venue - upto 90 Guests £2,000 (£22.00 per person spend - the cost is made up by all spend by your guests on the occasion day/night -very easy to meet!)
Friday / Saturday (full venue) Ground & First Floor Full Venue - upto 150 Guests £2,500+ (£16.00 per person spend - the cost is made up by all spend by your guests on the occasion day/night -very easy to meet!)

NOTE: We understand everyone's budget differs - the above table is only a guide. It's noteworthy to remember that guests meet most minimum spend requirements. All spending within the venue contributes towards minimum spend. Contact us to discuss your budget and plans - we always do our best to accommodate. Minimum spending will vary enormously based on the time of year and day of the week, with Fridays & Saturdays being the most expensive (obviously!).

Party Venue - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need to hire the whole venue?

A: Absolutely not! Our venue can host both smaller and larger parties. Our venue is highly adaptable. Regardless of your party size requirements, contact us, and we can help advise!

Q: Can I provide my own entertainment?

A: Of course! We have a brilliant sound system in which your entertainment can easily connect, whether a DJ or a live singer! We are happy to assist with any questions your entertainment may have about our technical sound system for your party.

Q: What on earth is a ‘minimum spend’?

A: The minimum spending for our venue hire varies depending on the time of year and day of the week. For example, a Monday in January will be a much lower spend than the Saturday before Christmas. We can work together to ensure this is always achievable based on usual trade and allows us to cover staffing for your party - we don’t want your Uncle Geoff waiting too long for a beer, do we? The minimum spends also differ depending on how much space you require in the venue.

A: Well done you! We have 154 seats - we wouldn’t advise many more than this for a full venue hire.

Q: What is capacity for the first floor only?

A: You can entertain anywhere up to 70-80 guests on our first floor - any more than that, and you’re probably looking at the entire venue.

Q: Is your venue free to hire?

A: Yes - depending on your party size, we typically agree to a minimum spend. We ensure this is attainable - regardless, contact us for further information or leave us a message.
