Special Occasions and Private Dining

Smaller wedding parties can be accommodated in either The Boardroom to a maximum of 18 persons, or The Private Dining Room to a maximum of 10.
The Gallery Restaurant is available for daytime receptions only, to a maximum of 42 guests, and unless exclusive use of the whole hotel including bedrooms is taken, the Gallery must be vacated by 4.30pm.

Exclusive Use

Exclusive use of the Hotel enhances the privacy and comfort of your special day throughout the day and evening whilst ensuring that the Gallery Restaurant need not be vacated by 4.30pm. You will have in effect complete use of The Cavendish for your private house party, with all the hotel bedrooms being reserved for your party, along with all public areas, lounge and bar.

Table Plans

Table plans and room layout are largely limited by the size and shape of the rooms we offer, for example for maximum numbers in the Boardroom and Private Dining Room, an oval shaped table is the only possibility. To download example table plans click here.


Wherever possible, individual requirements for menus can be accommodated. Head Chef Mike Thompson is available to offer help and expertise on menu arrangements. Experience tells us that the quality of food, presentation and service can be best achieved for functions when the whole party dines from a set menu common to all.
