Recommended For: Spacious, free parking at a seafront venue

The venue is a large and pleasant restaurant area on the ground floor with windows overlooking the seafront.  The facilities have recently been renovated and there is now a new dining room for groups of up to 24 people with the bar/restaurant area available for larger groups. Each group size has its own menu available, details and pricing below. The newly refurbished bar is available to the public but they are happy to run a tab for the funeral party. If you wish to rent out the bar/restaurant exclusively that can be arranged and prices are available if you contact the reception staff.

The venue costs £200 for parties up to 24 and 300 for parties of 25 and over. It is available most days until 6pm so is better suited to funerals ending before about 2pm.
