This area is perfect for serving arrival drinks, canapés or party platter finger food. The bar merges into a more formal dining area towards the back of the room which can also be hired separately.

Baby Showers

At The Castle Hotel we offer a unique baby shower afternoon or evening, where you and your guests will enjoy a lovely tea served with delicate finger sandwiches, delectable treats and a glass of Prosecco. Baby Showers are traditionally an American idea, but are rapidly gaining popularity in the UK. They are a wonderful way to gather friends and relatives to celebrate the new life coming into your family. We think that Baby Showers are a fabulous excuse for a party and a great way to treat a mum to be. Who can say “no” to a party, where you are showered with gifts and goodies for the impending arrival of a new baby boy or girl (or twins, triplets etc.).

Afternoon Tea
