Venue Hireage Policy

We work with the agreement that all hirers leave the space as they found it.

This includes the following:

  • Removing all waste from the property (we do not have the bin capacity to take waste from a large event such as a wedding)
    Putting away all chairs and tables used in storage space
    Doing and putting away any dishes used
    Removing all food from the fridges and cleaning if necessary
    Sweeping and mopping all floors
    Cleaning equipment is provided

It’s important to factor in set up and clean up time when working out how many hours you require each venue for.

Anything you need beside what has been listed in the descriptions you would need to bring/hire in yourselves. We have a café onsite that can do some catering. Please get in touch if you’d like their contact details.
