We are firm believers that there is not a “one size suits all” when it comes to any event or function. We like to think that we offer all of our customers a bespoke and personal experience.

We offer you a blank canvas and can provide everything you need, from space for a conference with a cold buffet, to sumptuous 6 course sit-down celebrations.

We have a small intimate restaurant that seats 30, and a function room seating up to 80 (more seating is available for a casual/buffet style event) with its own entrance, bar and toilets. Along with a large car park area and grounds this makes us the ideal location for all your functions.  We can cater for a wide range of functions or events either at Drusilla’s or at your chosen venue and can also provide outside catering, staff and mobile bars.

We regularly cater for weddings, christenings, birthdays and anniversaries etc… There is no hire charge for the function room for bookings which include food for a minimum of 40 people. (Please note we do not permit customers to bring their own drink into Drusilla’s.)  Choose from a range of menu options from cold finger buffets to bespoke 6 course menus. Give us a call to choose food to suit both your taste and budget.

Looking for some music? We often have live bands playing and can highly recommend a number of them, please contact us for more information.
