Once accepted a confirmed booking can only be cancelled or varied in accordance with these terms and conditions.

2 DEPOSITS The Company requires payment of a deposit before confirming any function booking. Payment of any deposit must be made at the time of a booking. Such a deposit will normally be calculated at the rate of £10.00 per person or full amount of any function room hire fee. However, The Company reserves the right to amend the amount of deposit required upon accepting a confirmed booking or upon agreeing any variation of it. The final bill will be issued on the day of the function, and any balance payable should be settled before departure.

5 VARIATIONS IN NUMBERS The Company requests that final numbers for an event are confirmed no less than 48 hours before the event. The final number confirmed will be the minimum number for which the cost per person is charged.
