The Arden Mezzanine is a lovely open space area located above the Packing House Café, and has a relaxed, informal feel. The flexibility of this room could transform it into a buffet area, children's area, space for a photo booth or games area, or a dance floor, to name but a few ideas.
Consisting of four very large tables with benches, this room is not located on the same floor as the lift and therefore careful consideration of your guests is required when booking this area. Maximum capacity for ceremony is 20 people and for banqueting capacity is 30 people.
