Refreshments & Equipment Availability

Refreshment Charges

Catering by Meeting House staff is available and includes the provision of a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit @ £1.00 per person per serving.

It is possible for all groups to provide their own refreshments. They have free access to the upstairs kitchen, and can either hire the downstairs cafe (£15/hr), or ask for urns and mugs in their room (£8/session).

Because of the variety of groups and potential catering needs, we have writen a guideline for larger groups considering refreshments, please contact us for more information.

Needless to say it would be worth discussing arrangements with the warden team.

You can order food from outside caterers to be delivered to the building.
