  • Breakfast meetings

The building is very large and is therefore suitable for bigger groups as well as smaller numbers of people.

We have four separate areas on our 1st floor which are ideal for small meetings or one large group. We can offer a range of food and drink packages to meet your individual needs. We have supplied examples of our menus that we offer but can also provide a bespoke menu if required.
