The Civic Parlour

Accommodates 42 people and is perhaps the most attractive of our smaller licensed rooms. This room was the drawing room of the old house. French doors open out onto the gardens with their magnificent views of the beach, castle and cliffs.

And more…

The Committee Room can hold 20 people and is a second room ideally suited to hold your interview and registry signing. Another impressive fireplace provides the focal point in this attractive room.

The Mayor’s Parlour

The Mayor’s Parlour is an ideal room in which to hold a smaller and more intimate ceremony. It’s an attractive wood panelled room full of history and interest which can seat 12 people and has adjoining doors leading into both the Committee Room and the Civic Parlour.

Imagine signing the marriage register in the Mayor’s chair that Sir Winston Churchill used when he visited the town as Prime Minister in 1952!
