Lunches, Cream Teas and Dinners

This 11th century beautiful Norman castle set in the grounds of Staffordshire countryside is offering cream teas, two and three course meals and buffets with a presentation by a historical speaker. We keep costs low so you can enjoy your time with us and just think you can have a cream tea and a chance to meet Queen Elizabeth 1st or another great figure from English history.
Our excellent chef and team can cater for all dietary requirements, including vegans and coeliacs. Prices are all inclusive and are for party bookings only. A great day or evening out! All costs quoted include entrance to the castle and parking.
Meals and events in the tea room and Great Hall are all for 20-36 people. However we do have a really glamorous marquee for events of up to 120 people which is quoted separately upon request.
