Wedding great hall

Wedding breakfast in the Great Hall

For atmosphere and versatility, it is hard to beat our three main venues for wedding breakfasts and receptions. Visit our picture gallery for more images of our venues.

The Great Hall

Beneath a ceiling of carved medieval angels, bathed in the colourful light from beautiful stained glass windows, and surrounded by original painted portraits and one of the country's rarest tapestries, this is a magical and memorable setting for your wedding breakfast or reception.

Wedding breakfast capacity 150

Reception capacity 180

The Undercroft

The atmospheric vaulted Undercroft is an ideal venue for medium-sized wedding breakfasts and evening receptions, or makes a perfect choice for a pre ceremony drinks reception when used in conjunction with the Great Hall.

Wedding breakfast capacity 70

Reception capacity 80

The Drapers' Room

With its decorative ceiling, ornate fireplace and painted portraits on the walls, The Drapers' Room is an elegant setting for smaller wedding breakfasts and receptions.

Wedding breakfast capacity 20

Reception capacity 30


Whether you are enjoying a full wedding day at the guildhall, a reception, or a small ceremony, we have a range of catering options to suit. Our experienced and talented chef has developed an extensive and tasty selection from where you can choose anything from a light buffet to a banquet of several courses. Children and special dietary requirements are catered for, and menu tasting can be arranged before you decide.

Our wine list has been put together in partnership with one of the region's most respected wine merchants, and offers quality and choice from around the world. 


The natural acoustics of our venues make them ideal for speeches, music and other forms of entertainment at your wedding breakfast or reception. Couples are welcome to arrange their own entertainment, although we are happy to make recommendations from our trusted contacts.

Our big day was nothing shy of perfect. Your banqueting team were just outstanding, the food was just delicious and us along with our guests had an absolutely amazing day...
