Our Story

Rebecca and I have loved every step of our journey, from finding the perfect venue and refurbishing it to the finished project. After a high demand for my entertainment over the last few years my partner and i decided to open a venue where i can be resident with my entertainment, and, with catering running through my blood, and Rebecca being a keen and fine baker, it seemed the ideal business for us.  

We are pleased and excited to announce that the garden at the rear of our building is now open! A great lawned area with plenty of room for the kids to run around. A separate smoking area. Perfect with a cold beer in the summer. Watch out for our events.....Outdoor entertainment and BBQ's
August Bank Holiday Sunday 11am-9pm
Live entertainment/karaoke and bbq in the garden (weather permitting) 
Bouncy castle for the kids
Free entry and families welcome!.
Enjoy some fab food from the barbie, basket meals will also be available.


Step into WOW!

in our stunning function room

The Function Room

It's no secret that the wedding industry is growing year by year, with venues opening and closing all over the country. We have thought long and hard about what we can offer our clients and have created affordable and quality packages. Some venues will charge high and quite honestly in my opinion, unjustified prices. We aim to offer a fairly priced package to all our clients. 

 Our beautiful function room has a modest capacity of 120. (96 seated) We boast a well stocked licensed bar, selling all the popular spirits and beers including  Carling Black Label, Carling black fruits cider, Peroni, coors light, Guiness, cask beers, Tuffers old and clod hopper from local brewery The Boot in Repton. Alongside a great spirit selection including flavoured vodka's and Gin's.

A good sized stage with a full professional PA system gives use fabulous sound throughout the room. We offer package parties which include a dressed room, buffet or hot meal and entertainment. DJ, disco and a singer. (depending on package option)
Professional, reliable and affordable packages.
