We are often asked about seating & table arrangements.

How many tables and chairs are there? Do we need to hire anything in? Suggestions for table layouts?

Don’t panic, the answers are all here for you…

Tables & Chairs;

We supply a wide range of circular and rectangular tables of various sizes, We have enough chairs for up to 120 guests.


Hire of equipment;

Some people hire in different chairs and chair covers.

For the main day you will need to make arrangements for your table linen, which is normally through the caterers of your choice. However there are firms which hire table linen and decorations alone.

We have more than enough cutlery, crockery and glasses for 120 guests.
