Wakes & Post Funeral Reception

Here at The Hundred House we understand what a difficult and upsetting time this can be. A time when care is needed, both to give your loved one a fitting celebration of their life, whilst also sheltering yourself from the stress of organising, staffing and catering for such an event.

Our professional and friendly staff will ensure that all details are taken care of, in beautiful surroundings with tasty homemade food – we promise you won’t find a soggy sandwich or rock hard scone here.

We have 2 areas to host in, for numbers between 20-120. The Courtroom, a private room within the Hotel, is ideal for more intimate Wakes of up to 35 guests.

Whilst our stunning 17th Century Oak Tithe Barn, complete with hundreds of twinkling fairy lights in the beams is perfect for between 35-120 guests.

Below are some sample menu’s, however everything in made from scratch in our kitchens and we aim to be as flexible as possible! If there’s something you’d like to have which isn’t listed, please don’t hesitate to ask our Events Manager.
