Funeral Receptions and Wakes

Coming to terms with the loss of a loved one is an emotional time and often you have to arrange a reception at short notice. We are on hand to help your reception run as smoothly as it can.

Our four New Forest Hotels are set in beautiful surroundings, can host any size gathering and offer quality food at a price to suit your budget. We hope we can take some of the pain and heartache out of all the arrangements and organisation that accompany a time of sorrow and grieving.

Our Funeral Reception and Wake Menu options enable you to easily and quickly select the menu you want and we will take care of everything else, leaving you comfortable knowing all is being taken care of. On the day itself we will ensure the occasion flows effortlessly allowing you to focus on the unique and individual life you are celebrating.

'We found the attentiveness and discreet service excellent and also wish to extend our gratitude to your kitchen staff who played their part in providing an excellent buffet on what was a very difficult day for ourselves...'
