The Derwent Room

Small function room

meeting-rooms-eastbourneSituated on the ground floor with plenty of natural daylight, this beautiful oak panelled room provides the perfect atmosphere for conferences, training courses and seminars.

There is also the advantage of a fitted projection screen and  plenty of natural daylight.

Private Dining

The Derwent Room is also ideal for private dining with an intimate atmosphere and direct access to the cocktail bar. This is becoming more and more popular as many people would rather now have an intimate sit down meal for a small number of friends and family, rather than a large party. We can accommodate however many people are invited.

This beautiful room is also available for wedding receptions, family and corporate luncheons and dinners.
