Intimate eating, out of the spotlight


As well as hosting hotel guests in our Tudor Bar Brasserie, we also offer several private dining options. For such occasions our kitchen works in tandem with our events team.

Designing bespoke menu options that cater for your unique occasion. Be it a sit-down dinner to cement the start of your newly married life together. Or a buffet to honour a milestone anniversary. We’ll help you host a one-of-a-kind celebration that everyone will enjoy.

Rose Suite

The Rose Suite is the largest of our exclusive hire suites. So it’s ideal for weddings, company parties and celebrations of a big nature. If your event calls for sit-down dining, this room can hold up to 60 people. Perfect for set-ups where the seating arrangement is designed to be more formal.


The Restaurant

We also offer our restaurant on an exclusive hire basis.

This type of arrangement typically suits smaller wedding parties and large groups of business delegates who are looking for an authentic restaurant experience, without other patrons in tow.
