The Orangery is a fantastic location for celebrations of all types. Whether it is a formal dinner dance or a more informal party, the venue is second to none. Your guests can arrive either straight into the Orangery for drinks at the bar or into the Garden Room where your reception drinks can be served. The seated meal or buffet is then generally served within the Orangery followed by your evening entertainment and dancing. Alternatively, the Garden Room can be used for music and dancing after dinner.
To give you an idea of pricing, below is an example of a typical Dinner Dance. Please note that smaller numbers and variations on the details below can be catered for, further details on application. All charges are reviewed annually in April.
Charges currently start at £39.45 + VAT per person to cover a sumptuous three-course menu with coffee prepared by our expert caterers, and exclusive use of the venue from 7pm till 1am (based on a minimum booking requirement of 80 guests). If you would prefer a more informal buffet rather than a seated meal, charges currently start at £27.90 + VAT per person. Click below to download menus.
The maximum capacity for a dinner with dancing in the Orangery is 160 guests. This would be reduced to 130 if a seated buffet is required. With maximum numbers, guests would be seated at round tables of 10. The maximum capacity for an informal buffet is 250 guests.
If you were to use the Garden Room for your dancing after dinner, the maximum guest numbers could be increased to 200 guests (20 tables of 10 guests seated in the Orangery). This would be reduced to 170 if a seated buffet is required.
See below for links to wine and reception drinks information. A private bar within the Orangery itself is also available to you and your guests – drinks are charged at public house prices.
Regarding your evening entertainment, we are able to recommend a DJ to you or you are welcome to arrange your own entertainment, perhaps a live band. Click to go to our Supplier Directory.
