Hire Info

 Hello! We assume you’re here because you want to know more about the spaces we have available for hire.  So, in a nutshell, we have two rooms which you can read more about below, which are FREE to hire.  Obviously though, we are able to do this because we want you to spend a bit of money over the bar, so below you can read the requirements.

 You can also see we now have a fancy new calendar here, which means you can check whether your preferred date is available, and enquire with a few details.  The larger, Bosta, room requires card details or a holding cheque as deposit at certain times, we will need this before booking you in.

Our Bosta Room ‘Tour’

The deposit
If required, your booking is not confirmed until we receive your deposit details and booking form.   We prefer to receive a ‘deposit’ as a cheque, which we do not bank so you do not have to part with the cash.  We then rip up the cheque when everything goes to plan.  However cheques seem to disappearing these days (!), so if necessary we can hold your card details.  We do not charge your card for this money, we hold the details just in case, and will always contact you before taking any charges.  We destroy these details after your booking as long as you made the minimum spend and did not throw a chair out the window.  There are more details on the booking form.
