By special request – funeral catering
The Old Boathouse is a beautiful setting to say goodbye

Organising a funeral can be a difficult time, so allow our catering team to

give you a sympathetic and personalised service during the day.
Under these circumstances we are able to work at short notice; all we
need is for you to confirm your menu option and an idea of the number of
people that you are expecting 48 hours before the event.
We always make sure that our buffets are generous, and we will be on
standby to ensure that if unexpected guests arrive, there will be enough
for everyone.
Facilities include:
• Fully licensed bar
• Nearby car parking
• Self-contained kitchen and toilets
• No hire charge – subject to minimum number of 20
• Privacy and dedicated waiter service at all times
