“We booked a Winter Ball with drinks reception and three-course meal for 65 guests... The venue is fantastic the food was superb and staff polite and helpful.”

Bridal / Baby Showers

To celebrate a forthcoming marriage or a baby’s imminent arrival, gather friends and family together for an afternoon tea party at Holdsworth House.

From £18.95 (plus £50 room hire charge) we can allocate you a fabulous private dining room. We can add some simple decorations or you can dress the room yourselves with as much colour-coded bunting and balloons as you wish. You’ll have enough sandwiches, pretty homemade patisserie treats and refreshing tea to feed all your guests, but there's plenty more we can do to make it extra special.
