Where an exclusive use wedding has been booked, the restaurant Samuel’s is closed to the public. The restaurant can seat 90 comfortably, and there is also the adjoining private dining room, which can seat a further 20.
Non exclusive wedding parties have the option of the private dining room (seating up to 20), or the library which can seat 70 guests.
For a larger wedding party we would need to erect a marquee for which there would be an extra charge. The most suitable site for this would be on the gravelled area adjacent to the Library which is connected via a French window.
Drinks receptions are often held in the impressive and spacious Lower Hall, or (for an exclusive use wedding only) in the Drawing Room which is lavishly furnished with antiques and family portraits. On a fine day, the gardens are also a very attractive with outdoor seating and a croquet lawn.
In the case of an exclusive use wedding, the rooms most suitable for dancing and music are the Library or Lower Hall, where a bar can also be set up.
Further details of the room layout and images of the reception and dining rooms can be found on the public rooms page of the hotel website.
