Directions to find your way to The Monastery can be found on this page. Having so many wonderful events at The Monastery creates the incredible aura which has become the hallmark of our beautiful venue.  It’s an honour when someone chooses to hold your private dining with us, so we treat every private dining as if it was our own.  Paying attention to every last detail is built into our DNA.  We want to ensure that everything is exactly as our client’s request.  Taking the burden of organisation on the day is a big part of our job, working alongside the event planners as best suits our clients.  Anticipating changes in requirements is also part of our job as we know that occasional ‘adjustments’ are inevitable.

Ensuring that guests at our meeting enjoy their day with us is paramount.   An important part of this is the quality of the food and drink that we offer, as well as the speed and consistency of the service delivery.

The Monastery has the most versatile spaces that you’ll find in any venue, offering incredible flexibility for ensuring plans for the day exactly match the needs and guest numbers for all of our clients.  For precise details of those spaces, a PDF of our floor plans is available by clicking here.
