A glorious country house built 200 years ago of stone from the Purbeck Hills, situated within its own beautiful, formal gardens

Entertaining, Dining, Parties and Cocktails

A dinner lubricates business.

Quote Mark Lord William Stowell

Private Dining

We will be pleased to host business lunches and dinners at the hotel.  These can be of a formal or informal nature and can be held in the restaurant, or in the privacy of The Regent or Wessex Rooms. 

Office Party

Christmas is usually the season for the traditional office party, but why wait until then? We shall be happy to help you celebrate at any time of the year!  Retirement parties are also frequently held at the hotel. 

Cocktail and Canapé Parties

We are able to host informal drinks and nibbles parties. These are usually held in the early evening, perhaps to celebrate a particular business success! As an alternative, we will be pleased to arrange a more formal cocktail party – perhaps a little out of fashion for some years, we have noticed that they are becoming more popular once again.
