The Function Room has a maximum 120 person capacity (120 standing or 80 seated), which is large enough to cater for most events, but also ensures your guests are not lost in an over-sized hall that can sometimes be the case. The adjoining Bar area can accommodate approx 80 people with a combination of seating with tables, and standing. So you can enjoy an intimate venue with some character, that could be the ideal solution for your event.

Free Parking for vehicles is all on-site with plenty of spaces. All within easy access just 1 mile from the A10 road at the Ware (South) turn off.

The function room has its own fully-licensed bar and fully fitted Kitchen with oven, fridge and freezers, etc., with a large serving hatch directly into the Function Room. So ideal for self-catering solutions.

Drinks are generally a lower cost than local Pubs, and being secluded away from residential areas, you can enjoy music, drink and dance up until midnight.

In the daytime, visitors can enjoy the surroundings with an open view across the club's Cricket field. The room can also be used for presentations, exercise classes, meetings, etc.
