There is also a large garden at the rear of the building, though this is in need of some tlc and is not generally available for users.
Our kitchen was completely refitted early in 2015. It can be used simply for preparing and serving drinks or for a major cook-in - we estimate it's suitable for providing a full meal for 60-80 people or buffet for up to 100.
There is a range cooker (2 electric fan ovens, 1 electric grill and 5 gas rings), dishwasher (each load takes about 2 minutes), fridge, water heater for drinks, microwave and coffee filter machine. Plenty of work surfaces, including a central work unit, makes preparation easy and a serving hatch opening into the main hall provides for quick serving. A double sink makes food preparation and the odd washing up simple and there is a separate hand-washing sink next to the cleaning equipment cupboard. Crockery, cutlery and glassware are available.
