Coldham Hall is the ideal venue for any private function benefitting from beautiful riverside views and a cosy yet expansive interior. We can host weddings, birthday parties, christenings, wakes, anniversary parties, work functions, business meetings, club get-togethers and more.
Our restaurant can comfortably seat approximately 50-55 people depending on the seating arrangement required, with an additional 20-25 in our snug and 20 in the main bar. The restaurant and snug are positioned perfectly to allow functions to take place in either without infringing upon each other, with the restaurant more suited to more formal situations and the snug ideal for more intimate gatherings.
We are very lucky to have beautiful riverside gardens which are ideal for outdoor events with a large lawn directly on the riverfront, and a separate lawn set back from the river by our beautiful willow tree. We have six electric points outside which can be used for your function such as for activities like bouncy castles and inflatable games, or for live or recorded music.
Our chefs can cater for any food specification required including a formal two or three course dinner, hot or cold buffet, as well as a hog roast or BBQ for larger parties. All of our food is sourced locally wherever possible using local suppliers. Our meat all comes from Swannington Farm to Fork, fish and seafood from The Lowestoft Shellfish Company and vegetables, fruit and herbs from Green Pastures Farm Shop in Bergh Apton. We can also cater for specific dietary requirements and food allergies as every dish is prepared in-house.
We have hosted many weddings at Coldham Hall and believe ourselves to be an ideal riverside venue for anyone looking to hold their special day in a tranquil setting by the river. We do not charge a hire fee for using Coldham Hall and always try to work within any budget presented to us. All we ask is that if we close to the public for a wedding that we cover the expected revenue we would have achieved if we had been open as normal. As a seasonal pub our expectations will be higher in the spring and summer than in the autumn and winter.
We truly believe that your wedding is your special day and therefore it should proceed exactly as you would like it to and dreamt it would be. We have no affiliations with any wedding-related businesses such as florists and photographers therefore you are free to choose who you want to be involved and how you would like the venue to be decorated. We also have plenty of space outside for a marquee to provide extra seating or for a separate band area or disco.
In terms of food we can offer a formal sit down meal, buffet, hog roast, BBQ or simply burgers or fish and chips. As a freehouse we have the freedom to meet any specific drink requirements such as a favourite ale you would like to have available, certain spirit or even a favourite wine. Our chefs can offer a range of homemade desserts or if you would prefer you can provide your own wedding cake. We have an inside and outside music licence so you are free to arrange your own live music or DJ for a disco, with our raised restaurant area providing a perfect stage and dance floor. In terms of access, we have a large car park with space for more than 20 cars or for those arriving by boat there is approximately 360ft of quay heading including both side on and stern on moorings.
