Here at The Hostess we are well known for the spectacular wedding receptions that we offer. This is because we offer an excellent choice of menu and also the restaurant and it's surroundings are there to be enjoyed by you and your guests only. We also can offer you a civil wedding, if you do not want to use a religious ceremony.

When you arrive, you and your guests will be greeted by our friendly staff who will be serving drinks.

Take time to chat amongst your guests and then when you are ready you will be shown into the beautifully decorated restaurant and seated for your meal. After the formality of cutting the cake, toast and speeches you will be asked to leave the restaurant and move into the lounge, for a short period of time whilst we arrange the restaurant for the night. In this time you be able to relax or if the weather allows, you can sit and have a drink outside. But do not think about getting comfortable as there is more to come. At night there will be a disco, quiz if requested and the buffet.

If you require any information on our Weddings then simply contact us on 01623 843728 or pop in and have a chat. Alternatively just email us and we will be happy to send our brochure through as an attachment on an email, or click on the link below.

We can discuss menu's over a cup of coffee and we will be glad to listen to any ideas you have.

Here at the Hostess we can make it a day to remember! With that in mind we have put together a package so you can see at a glance what value for money you can get. With our menu's you and your guests choose on the day from the choices you decide. No need to pre order.
