Great Hall

The Great Hall, formerly known as the Banqueting Hall, can accommodate up to 170 guests for dinner or a meeting and up to 300 for standing receptions. Dating back to 1670, the Hall is oak panelled and includes the Minstrels’ Gallery beneath which the Company’s banners are hung during festive occasions.

Amongst the remarkable features of the Great Hall is an exquisite silver display case, coats of arms and large panels painted by Sir Frank William Brangwyn.

The Great Hall can be used for a range of events and adapted to a variety of layouts based on your requirements. It sits adjacent to the Old Court Room and can be used in conjunction with the Committee Room and the Outer Hall, with two courtyards for al fresco entertaining at ground floor level.
