Celebrations and Corporate Events


With three marvellously set art deco function suites and a stylish restaurant, we offer a unique setting for an extensive variety of private functions at any time of the year. Whether it is a milestone anniversary, special birthday or something else, our team have a wealth of experience in organising and delivering on a multitude of private events.

Birthday Parties – Turning 21, 30 or 100? We have a setting that will be right for you. For intimate gatherings of close friends, our Ripon & Wetherby Suite offers a secluded boutique environment ideal for private dining. The suite itself can comfortably accommodate up to seventy of your guests for lunch or dinner.

Anniversary Celebrations – At the Hotel we believe every year of marriage is a year worth cherishing, and our team will make every effort to make sure that it is one to remember. Choose from a table for two in our sensational Cafe Bar Concerto restaurant, or if you have a collection of friends and family coming to celebrate with you, then consider our Concorde Suite. We will make sure everything is as you wished. Want to keep it a secret? Our team would be delighted to help plan a surprise celebration for your loved one.

Awards Ceremonies – Looking for a distinct venue to host an evening dedicated to your staff or organisation? Our Ballroom offers seating for up to 300 guests theatre style, 180 guests cabaret set up and 240 guests if your event revolves around a lunch or dinner. This breathtaking setting comes equipped with a large stage and built in bar.

The excellent team of Chefs that handcraft the dishes served in our restaurant also prepare all of the catering for privately booked functions. From vast buffets to remarkable Afternoon Teas, and the more traditional 3 course dinners, our Chefs are happy to work with you to piece together a fully customisable menu for your event. Tasting meals can also be arranged for those who require it.  

Over the years we have built strong relationships with a mixture of suppliers who can help add that extra spark to any celebration. We work closely with the venue decorating experts The Finishing Touch and the cake connoisseurs CupCakes 2 Love to name just a few. We can also recommend musicians, magicians and more.

We always like to see photographs from various events that take part at the Hotel. Feel free to share them with us across our various social media channels during and after your event: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and Google+.
