Tastefully decorated and with enough standing room to accommodate 40 guests, our events room is perfect for a post-ceremony celebration or champagne reception. 

Available to book alongside all of our drinks or canape packages, we are able to cater for a number of requirements.

Features include:

  • a fully staffed bar, offering a variety of drinks including wines, beers, and several soft drinks and non-alcoholic alternatives
  • feature walls that make the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos
  • tables for drinking and mingling
  • seats and sofas for those unable to stand for long periods 

Our paid bar

Our paid bar in Civic Hall will be available for all ceremonies that day - with no need to book!

If you prefer a private experience, our newly refurbished events room can be booked out per hour, inclusive of the use of a staffed paid bar. We are happy to run the private bar as you wish, including as paid for by your guests, or with a tab, or with a capped amount set in advance.

Drinks packages

We are pleased to offer a number of drinks packages available for your marriage or civil partnership reception. We can offer access to our paid bar, a private room to rent, or a bespoke champagne reception after your ceremony.

The use of our new refurbished events room is also available to hire for a private drinks reception.

A paid bar will be available for further drinks.

The events room can be extended for a charge of £50 per hour - please speak to a member of staff at the time of your booking for availability.
