The Castle View Suite

Our primary function suite is the Castle View Lounge, where the newly installed balcony will let you and other attendees at your event enjoy stunning views of our picturesque cricket field and as far as Lumley Castle.

The adaptable Castle View Lounge can be arranged to your exact requirements. We also offer disco facilities which our in-house DJ can tailor to your needs. In addition, the lounge has its own bar facilities which you can leave to fade into the background on occasions that they are not required.

Room Specifications: Seats 100

To be used as a guideline – both suites are fully adaptable to individual needs.

If you make a private booking, there is no room hire for which to pay. Our catering options are priced from £8 per person and range from finger buffets and fork buffets through to three-course meals. All of our menus can be adapted to individual requirements.

If you require disco facilities, our DJ will, before your function, liaise with you to set up a playlist. Alternatively, you can simply let the DJ decide and provide the perfect soundtrack to your evening.

Although we cannot provide your room decorations, we do have a list of preferred service providers who know our room specifications. Therefore, they are well-positioned to help you decide what decorations would best suit your particular event and, thus, give you those decorations, too.

Resident Catering & Hospitality Manager available for your every need

Whatever your needs, our resident catering and hospitality manager can ensure that they are met. To book one of our function rooms in Chester-le-street or learn more about them, call or email us. You are also welcome to call in and see us; we will be very happy to show you around both suites and discuss your needs.

Our venue is well-suited to a wide range of events, including:

Wedding Receptions of all sizes. Anniversaries / Birthdays / Special Occasions
Company Seminars / Product Launches / Meetings/
Any other type of large or small gathering
