The library accommodates 10 guests comfortably for a private lunch or dinner celebration and up to 20 guests for a cocktails and canapés reception. The walls lined with shelves of books and the open fireplace give an intimate feel to this beautiful room.

The Pitt-Rivers room has a wonderful sprung dance floor laid in the 1970s by Big Band leader Victor Sylvester junior. An original blue & silver mirror ball add some sparkle and a dedicated entrance and bar provides the perfect space for parties of all kinds.


The Seaside Boarding House can be taken exclusively throughout October until March between Sunday afternoon and Friday morning. From April this is restricted to days between Monday & Thursday (half-terms & holidays excluded).

It is possible to take the whole of The SBH over a weekend but the opportunity is restricted to 6 dates throughout the year.


Choices can be made from our à la carte party menus or a totally bespoke menu can be prepared. Our Head Chef and management team are here to help.
