Cancellations made after the invoice has been paid will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee.

A discount of 10% will be made for regular bookings of 10 weeks or over.  Regular hirers are required to pay a £25 deposit for the keys to the Hall.

Snug Bar

The hire charge for the Snug Bar alone is £10.00 per hour.

The Bar

When a bar is ordered, the hirer pays for the bar staff required at the rate of £10.00 per hour per bar person for the hours the bar is booked which should include 30 minutes “drinking up” time.  It is recommended that 1 bar person be hired for every thirty adults present although, for evening parties, a minimum of 2 bar persons will be provided and 3 for 18th to 21st birthday parties.  This charge for bar staff is reflected in the cost of drinks, which is below normal pub prices.
