Funeral Receptions

Funeral receptions in the peace and serenity of our lakes
We have been providing caring, friendly, attentive service to our customers & members for some thirty years, with our long-standing, highly experienced staff being sensitive to your special requirements on this important day.

Let us take some of the pressure off you by organising the funeral reception on your behalf. Just telephone us on 01932 248547.

All we need to know is your choice of food, any drinks arrangements and the number of guests you would like us to cater for, then just leave the rest to us.

Suggested menus are there to help to take the pressure off you at this distressing time; however, should you wish to create a bespoke menu for this most important of occasions, we will be more than happy to discuss and provide your personal requirements.

At Halliford Mere we strive to ensure that the requirements and privacy of the host and their guests are paramount. To this end, we can provide a 'private' room for through to 'sole' use of our restaurant, according to the number attending the funeral reception.

Thank you for considering Halliford Mere Lakes & Pavilion for this important occasion. We hope that this is of use to you and should you feel that we may be of service to you and your family and friends, please do not hesitate to contact us.
