Private dining

Intimate & stylish

There are four things you need for any successful dinner party: lovely surroundings, good company, great wine, and excellent food. You bring the company, we'll sort the rest.

Celebrate in style

Whether you want a cosy, intimate space or a bright and airy setting for your private dining occasion, at Merchants Manor we have just the function space for you. Look out over the garden as you catch up over great food and a glass of wine, toast to recent business successes, or spend the evening as the host with the most as you charm your guests in our lovely private dining venue.


Don't take our word for it

Jean Jobling and her husband Chris celebrated their ruby wedding anniversary with dinner at Merchants Manor. Jean and Chris met at a teacher training college in the 1970s. After having three children they found they had little time for themselves, so they wanted to make their ruby anniversary a moment to remember.

Making plans

“We knew we wanted an intimate occasion, so we thought of Merchants Manor,” says Jean.

“We’re members of the Leisure Club and saw the Library one day on the way to the swimming pool. It looked perfect. We met Sioned over coffee and told her what we had in mind. The team was extremely helpful and very efficient. We felt the pressure lifted right from the start."

On the day

“We were given our own host who looked after our every need. Everything was ready when we arrived and our host met us before our guests arrived. We had friends and family travelling from various places, so we wanted everything to be just right. And it was.

“The service was excellent throughout the evening, very thorough but understated and unobtrusive. The Library was ideal for our size and there was a lovely atmosphere. Everyone commented on the food. And people who hadn’t been to Merchants Manor before have gone back again for a meal.

"I’d recommend Merchants Manor for anyone planning a special event. The team works very hard to make it perfect.”
