Looking for somewhere to host a special occasion? You have just found it! Birthday party, anniversary party, hen party, wedding party, leaving party, retirement party or a just because party, we specialise in those added touches to make it a party to remember.

Whether it be a table booking, room or full venue hire (including a beach garden,) we can offer things others can’t.

Pop up events
