Main Hall
The Main Hall boasts an area of approximately 110 square metres. There are two trolleys with 19 light and easily erected tables together with 84 padded chairs, that hirers can set out as suits their requirements. When set out with tables and chairs, the hall will accommodate between 90 - 95 people, depending on the arrangement. For a buffet or disco, where tables are not so evident, the Hall will comfortably accommodate over 100 people. N.B. Fire Regulations allow a maximum of 120. There is a disabled toilet directly off the Main Hall that also has a baby change unit.
A first aid kit is located in the store room next to the disabled toilet. Our refurbished Ladies and Gents toilets are located to either side of the main entrance lobby.

The modern well-equipped kitchen now has a new large gas oven with 6 burners, 2 modern stainless steel sinks, a large fridge and a medium-sized microwave oven.
There are plenty of food preparation surfaces and a stock of cookware, utensils, cutlery, crockery and mugs for use by the hirer.
There is a also a large selection of wine glasses. The Main Hall, the Servery and the Committee Room can all be accessed directly from the kitchen.

Servery and Bar Area
The small servery and bar area is located off the kitchen with a generous hatch to the Main Hall through which drinks and snacks can be dispensed. A fridge and freezer are located beneath the bar to the right of the hatch - useful for cooling drinks and/or snacks. An additional store of glasses - including pints and half-pints - can be found in the cupboards in this area. These are all included in your hire fee of the Main Hall.


The stage area has blue/green curtaining, which is fully operational for use during performances. Equipped with spotlights, some stage lighting and a full width projector screen to the back wall of the stage this is the ideal 'platform' for amateur dramatics!

The two photographs above show the stage area fabulously decorated for a Muslim wedding. This celebration took place the day before the wedding and was for the family and friends of the bridegroom.

Car Parking
Located to the side of the hall and with direct access to the kitchen, there is a small car park that accommodates up to 5 vehicles for use exclusively by people hiring the hall.
Additional parking for up to 35 vehicles is located directly to the rear of the hall in the village car park. This includes 2 clearly marked disabled parking spaces reserved exclusively for Blue Badge holders. The car park was re-surfaced in 2012. There is no charge for parking here but hirers are requested to park considerately as this car park serves both the village and the church next door to the hall.
