Servant's Hall at Elizabeth Gaskell's House

About this space

Our Servant's Hall is situated right next door to our lovely tea rooms, so it is the perfect room for weddings that require both spaces.

This picture perfect space offers a cozy and bright setting, which dresses beautifully for intimate weddings. It has become extremely popular for Wedding Breakfast's buffets and drinks receptions.

The spacious floor offers the opportunity for a variety of seating plans to suit all.
