Wedding reception

Party Time!

Evening Guests


You might invite all your wedding guests for the entire day, alternatively, you could have a smaller number of guests for the daytime elements, then invite extra evening guests.

We'll help you work out your bespoke wedding day timings so you know what time to invite any extra evening guests from.

The Bar will be open when they arrive and we're happy to put out extra furniture in The East Barn if you'd like us to, although most evening guests will head for the bar and the dancefloor.




Your First Dance


You'll traditionally cut the cake and then take to the dance floor for your first dance, during the evening reception. It's a great idea to leave these two elements of your wedding until a little later in the evening so that any additional evening guests can share these moments with you.


Evening Entertainment


We know you'll want a packed dancefloor. You can choose what sort of evening entertainment you’d like, a DJ or a live band.

We love a ceilidh dances, where the callers get everyone up dancing a jig. We’ve even been treated to a performance from the King himself, Elvis, a couple of times!

If you’re looking for some inspiration please visit our Handpicked Suppliers list y for some great band recommendations and contact details for our highly recommended DJs Sound Solutions.

The Bar


Our stunning Bar is open throughout your wedding reception until last orders at 11.30pm with the bar closing at 11.45pm.

Your guests are treated to an awesome view of the celebrations below from our glass fronted viewing balcony, they can settle into one of our cosy leather armchairs and enjoy a sociable chat over a very reasonably priced drink of their choice. We try to keep our bar prices in line with the local pubs and as we’re in Staffordshire that often means that guests up from London think we’ve added up wrong!


Great Selection of Drinks


Featuring draft ales, premium lager and Guinness on tap, the beer drinkers are well catered for whilst a selection of wines by the glass or bottle and a comprehensive choice of spirits, ensures that most tastes are catered for. Current bar prices are available upon request.
