We make a charge if you are using any large electrical appliance (e.g., bouncy castle).


Your booking is only confirmed once all hire fees and deposits are paid.

  • Wash all glasses, plates, and cutlery (2 dishwashers)

  • An electric range cooker with two ovens and a 5-plate ceramic hob
  • A small microwave, two kettles, kitchen knives
  • About 50 large plates, 50 medium plates and 50 bowls (soup/dessert) plus 50 knives, forks, spoons

In the main hall we have a Denon receiver and two speakers, which are mounted on the wall in the main hall. This is suitable for background music. Connection is by Bluetooth.



We have an HD digital projector, Blue-ray player and speakers in the Bishop room.

Check with us if you need to check anything critical to your event before your hire.



There is a ramp at the back door suitable for wheelchairs. Once inside, all floors are level and there is a disabled toilet.



There is a garden, which you are welcome to use. It is well fenced but is not child-proof. We strongly suggest an adult supervises the garden when children are there.



We have our own off-road car park that will accommodate about 30 cars.

Caterers & Entertainers

You can use caterers, entertainers etc., provided they each carry public liability insurance of at least £1m (we will need to see a copy) and you tell us who you are using on the booking form.


Serving alcohol

Pay a corkage fee, bring, and serve your own alcohol, use our glasses if you wish (just wash & pay for any breakages).

BUT you may not charge your guests.

If you want to run a cash bar, first get our agreement then apply in good time for a TEN (temporary event notice), from Wokingham Council.


Decorating the hall

Yes, but you must use the low tack tape we supply (nothing else) and return the rest of the roll.

Do not use blue tac, white tac, cello tape, pins, or anything else.

You must not attach anything to lights or to pictures.

Leave yourself enough time to take down all decorations and tidy up.


Bouncy castle

Yes, the smallest ones fit inside, and larger ones outside in the garden. You are responsible for safety, insurance etc. so use a good supplier.



You can bring a BBQ, but you must position it outside, a safe distance from the hall and the LPG tank.


Teenage party

We hire only to local hirers we know, subject to special terms.


Public transport

For all practical purposes, no.
