Wedding Receptions

Your wedding is one of the happiest days of your life, but not everyone wants a big lavish wedding. If you’re looking for somewhere a bit more intimate to celebrate your special day with friends and family then the Ness could be ideal. For very small wedding parties you can hire our conservatory or, for a larger event, you can hire our marquee on the lawn. Our experienced team are guaranteed to make your special day as enjoyable and stress free as possible so what are you waiting for, get in touch and see how we could help turn your dreams into reality.


Celebrating life’s milestones is always a great reason for a party. Whether you are celebrating becoming another year older or spending another year with that special someone we’d love to help. Speak to us about reserving a table, or invite everyone and reserve an area of our restaurant, the more the merrier.

Celebration of Life Gatherings

At the Ness we appreciate that this can be a difficult time, our experienced team are on hand to help you with as much or as little as you need during the preparations. On the day they will be behind the scenes making sure all the little details are covered so that you can come together with friends and family to celebrate the life of your loved one in a relaxed and sympathetic environment.
