The Ballroom

Recently refurbished, The Ballroom is the main indoor function room at The Antrobus Hotel. Able to cater for a variety of functions, The Ballroom is a licensed for marriages and civil partnerships. This spacious room with high ceiling can seat up to 150 people in theatre and up to 70 in a dining configuration.

The Ballroom is licensed to play live or recorded music until 2pm, which makes it a popular choice for the evening portion of wedding receptions – since it leads directly onto the terrace that our wedding marquee is erected on.

Among the many configuration options available in The Ballroom is a removable stage, and projection system with a large 3m screen. The large chandelier in the middle of the room is an impressive centerpiece and the room has recently been installed by a dynamic LED lighting system, whereby the walls can colour-washed with any of over 200 colours to suit the brand identity or theming of the event that it holds.

The Ballroom benefits from it’s own outdoor terrace, which is available for private hire hire along with the attached outdoor bar – which can be hired for exclusive use.

Located just across the foyer from the main bar and restaurant, The Ballroom benefits from fantastic views out onto the garden and offers direct access to the Marquee and The Orangery.

After the wedding has taken place the happy couple and their guests can move out into the garden and have some fantastic photos taken around the fountain and pagoda.

Wedding Receptions

Whilst being a popular venue for the ceremony itself, The Antrobus Hotel also frequently holds wedding receptions for couples who have chosen to get married at another venue. We have a total of 5 hirable function areas, most of which interconnect and can be hired together to provide a flexible venue for your wedding. The Ballroom is a popular choice for both the reception (where guests opt not to hire the wedding marquee) and as a location to hold the evening festivities, since it leads out directly onto the garden terrace/marquee. Adaptable LED lighting in the room enables the walls to be ‘colour washed’ with the colour scheme of the function, whilst the dimmable chandelier in the centre of the room provides an excellent focal point.
