We love to celebrate! And to cater for your private party or group booking will be an honour.

From intimate family celebrations to large group bookings that secure a private space through to exclusive use of our pub-restaurant and al fresco Observatory. We can cater for your group size up to about 80 guests.

Inside, the nooks and crannies of our ancient building provide a choice of spaces for your event or special occasion near Oxford. Beyond the main building, we have our Observatory with its dining pods or our Georgian stable.

Send us your event enquiry

Your event will be tailored to your wants and needs because we’re no ordinary Oxford venue. The unique make up of our event venue works well for team off-sites where groups can gather for meetings, break-out groups can split off into quiet areas to focus, and everyone can dine together and let their hair down at the end of the day.

Your guests, colleagues or friends will be welcomed according to your party wishes or the itinerary of your day. We have a spacious car park and buses run throughout the day from Oxford. Cycling from the city centre is ~3 miles.

If you wish to organise entertainment or workshops, just let us know and we’ll agree the space and equipment required to fulfil your hopes for the event.

We’re on hand to deliver an event that ticks all your boxes and has your guests leaving on a high.
