Meadow Suite

Capacities ranging from 40-300 guests (up to 100-150 seated capacity depending on the room layout requirements)

The Meadow Suite provides the perfect ambiance for those memorable occasions. With its unique versatile room layout the Meadow Suite suite has two levels, the upper level seating 100 guests for dinning allowing the lower level to be the perfect stage for evening entertainment or for additional dining. The floor to ceiling doors open onto our exclusive decking area, which overlooks the meadow leading down to the lake. 

A fully equipped and licensed bar is available within the Meadow Suite meaning guests do not need to go far for the all-important refreshments.


Capacities ranging from 6-60 guests

Blandford’s offers a more intimate dining experience for up to 30 seated guests in the main dining room or 60 guests for a standing drinks reception. The interlinking Blandfords Ante Room can offer private dining for up to 10 guests or used in addition to the main restaurant.

The relaxed setting makes this an ideal space for people to host guests for a private lunch or dinner.


Our in-house Hospitality team can provide a wide range of catering and refreshment options suitable for all events. Choose from hearty baguettes, to a hot fork buffet, BBQ or something more formal such as a three course plated lunch or dinner.
