FAQs
  • We can move out tables and chairs on and around the stage if you need more standing space
  • We are proud to lease and look after this beautiful old building, however unfortunately it has no wheelchair access for upstairs.  If you need to reserve a space downstairs please email
  •  We love dogs but we can’t assume that all our customers would be happy to eat next to one, or sit on a seat previously occupied by your furry friend.  Therefore we took the difficult decision not to allow dogs other than guide dogs into the building.

The food and drink offers

You are welcome to bring your own celebration cake, all other food must be bought from us.

  • You can download our buffet menu here
  • We can provide a Tea urn and biscuits for an advance payment of £3 a head

  • We ask that you provide final numbers and pay for the buffet/drinks 7 days before your event

Music/Facilities

  •  In the Map room we can switch off the music for meetings, but there is no facility to play your own
  • There is box in the Bosta room on the stage to enable you to plug in: an ipod or laptop with a headphone jack (we provide the cable); 2 microphones; a PA directly into our speakers for small gigs (we do not provide any equipment like microphones, you would need to bring these)
  • Please note that due to planning conditions any amplified music must be played through our speakers/limiter
  • Our rooms are free to hire, no equipment such as TVs, Projectors or microphones are included.  You can hire equipment to be delivered here at any time but we will not sign to accept liability.

The decorations
You are welcome to decorate however you’d like, in some circumstances we allow decorations to be put up on the walls early to save time for you later.  Please avoid sellotape, confetti and stickers or you will be charged a damage fee.

The licence
We cannot have anyone drinking outside after 11pm.   We have no restrictions on children attending, but they must be accompanied by an adult at all times after 7pm.  We do not cater for 18ths or under 18 gigs.  We serve up until 11pm on weekdays and 1am on Friday and Saturday nights (please check as our opening hours will vary at the moment due to curfew and staff shortages)

Any other questions?
Please call us or pop in outside of busy food service times, alternatively send an email to people@cherryreds.com with any questions and we will get back to you when we get office time.  We are friendly and nice and would love to have you!
