We understand that timings and numbers for funeral receptions are difficult to manage, especially if most of your guests are coming to the hotel before the close family. In this instance we promise to welcome them in and ensure they have hot drinks, wine, and food while they wait for your family to arrive from the crematorium or cemetery.

Our experienced team will guide you through the planning stages to discuss menu options, layout and any personal touches that you would like to add. Anything from personalised background music to a memory table.
