Private Dining and Events

Originating in the 18th Century, The Church Inn is a classic interpretation of an old ‘Country Tavern’ with both public and private dining rooms. Upstairs, overlooking the picturesque St. Wilfrid’s Church, the pub boasts two beautiful private dining rooms. The Mallory Room can entertain up to 30 seated guests for a variety of gatherings, private parties, wedding receptions, dinners and christenings. The Chef’s Library is a more intimate private room which seats up to 8 guests for special occasions.

We tailor all of our events to meet the requirements of our guests. From a cocktail and canapés reception in our beautiful gardens to a feast dinner in our grand private dining room, we make every effort to ensure that your event is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible.

Meetings and Corporate Events

If you are looking for the perfect venue for a business meeting or company retreat, our two private dining rooms are the ideal space for small conferences, meetings and client events. All day catering, free wi-fi and a welcoming team means we provide everything you need for your corporate event.

Wedding Receptions

With the option of a fully bespoke 4-course menu and paired wines, our George Mallory room is the perfect location for intimate wedding receptions. The room has its own roaring fire and a wonderful ambience conducive with a relaxed or formal, special event. Seat up to 24 guests on one long and dramatic family-style table, or arrange the room with a top table and smaller groups to seat up to 30.

For summer weddings, we offer the use of our private garden area for drinks receptions on arrival. Greet your guests on the lawn before heading up to the George Mallory room for supper, or host your whole wedding outside under our marquees with our delicious award-winning food taking centre stage.
