About this space
Our inside Garden Arch on the upper floor is a light airy space with a summer garden feel and is decorated with flowers and fake grass.
It's a great space for your next celebration and is hugely popular for engagement and birthday parties, or a sit-down meal on weekdays, and leads directly outside to our private outside space adding an extension to your company summer party.
On weekends have a DJ on from 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays playing a mix of commercial R&B, Pop, House and Club Classics (Kisstory vibe).
The space is also ideal for company meetings, presentations and away-days and if booked for this comes with projector, screen and flip charts if required.
Our garden arch seats 20 for dinner parties or up to 50 for a standing reception. Dimensions: 4m x 7.5m.

Great atmosphere and friendliness of staff. The space is as advertised. We had a great time.
Once the music starts its hard to talk indoors.
Great venue, location, and brilliant Staff!
The location, the staff, the space all great!
The DJ was due at 10pm , but didnt show... which was actually very disappointing because it was a party without music (other than streamed music too quiet to get people dancing).
Really easy to organise and communication was great. The people I was speaking to were really nice and helpful. Venue was a great atmosphere!
There were some particularly rude members of staff at the venue which was a shame as other than that it was a great night. The bouncers were really unnecessary and rude, with condescending comments speaking to members of the party like school children.
