FAQs

A celebratory meal eaten just after a wedding (at any time of day) by the couple and their guests. It is called this because it is the first meal that the couple will share after their marriage has taken place.

We have an in-house chef who has many years experience in the caterer industry. If you have something in mind which is not on our menus, please do let us know, he would be happy to discuss alternative options with you.

It is completely your choice what time you have your wedding ceremony. We suggest 3pm as the best time because it allows plenty of time to get ready in the morning and it makes your day flow very nicely without any large gaps where guests might become bored.  Our venue is covered by Watford Registry Office, to find out what ceremony times are available on your chosen date, please give them a call on: 0300 123 4045.

We never guarantee access to the venue the day before because we could always get a last minute event. If your event is on a Friday however it is a lot more likely that you would be allowed access the day before than a Saturday event.

No, there will never be more than one wedding or event on the same day. We offer exclusive hire of our venue and all of its spaces from 9am until license end. Please be aware that there could be a cricket match during your event but the cricketers have a separate bar space and facilities.

On Fridays and Saturdays it is until midnight, Sundays 11.30pm and Monday – Thursdays 11pm. After the license time you will still have half an hour before you need to leave the premises, unless agreed otherwise.
