This kitchen is suitable for any professional chef, but simple enough for the domestic cook.
It contains a large cooker, microwave, food warmer, dishwasher, water heater, seperate sinks for food preparation and hand-washing. Instructions for appliances are available in the hall.
Crockery and cutlery is available for your use, but no "catering" equipment eg pots and pans are available - PLEASE SEE DETAILS by clicking on the button below.
Garden and Parking
The area to the front of the hall is landscaped, providing an attractive entrance to the hall. To the rear of the building there is an enclosed landscaped garden. This adjoins the village playing field which provides an attractive outlook.
We do have a car park. However, the Hall does not own the whole car park so it is not all available for our sole use.
