Functions Procedures and Terms

In addition to the menu price per head, there will be a charge to cover the set up for the function and extended hours outside the normal opening hours for the restaurant, together with the exclusive use of the facility.

To assess this cost we will need to meet with you to get a clear understanding of what you have in mind. Among other things, this will cover areas such as numbers, decoration required, table layouts, drink arrangements, and timeframes. Based of this discussion we will confirm the details with you for your acceptance. Changes after acceptance may result in additional charges.

Payment terms

  • 25% of the estimated cost of the event payable on confirmation as a deposit.
  • Payment of the remaining balance of the estimated cost one week before the date.
  • A balancing payment on the function day covering items not calculated in advance such as extra bar tab, refund for unused wine stock, extra numbers, or changes to decorations or time frames.


If your numbers drop below the number you confirmed with us, you will still be required to pay the menu charge for the agreed number. Increases can normally be accommodated provided they are within the maximum capacity of the venue (approximately 100 people).


There may be significant additional charges if the event runs passed the agreed closing time. However, incurring these charges does not give the right to stay longer and accordingly we will encourage guests staying beyond the agreed closing time to leave as soon as possible. This is intended to protect the interests of our motel guests who are entitled to a quiet environment.
