The kitchen is fully equipped with all that you should require for light refreshments, or meals for up to 60 people. Hirers need to provide their own consumables. (Tea/Coffee/Milk/Biscuits). There is a small shared fridge but no freezer. There is a large industrial stove and an industrial dishwasher which takes about 15 minutes per cycle. There is a large area of worktop, twin sinks with drainers, plus a hand wash basin. There are independent hatches to allow serving into the Lounge and/or Hall.
We do not provide a laptop or projector. Projector stands, screens and cables are available for your use if required. Rooms have curtains. Wi-Fi is available by prior agreement, and an access code will be provided if requested.
