Private Functions

Have a function or event coming up? Whether you're planning a birthday, work event, sports club night, leaving drinks, presentation, engagement party, Christmas function or even a wedding, no matter the occasion we're here to take the pressure off so you can relax and enjoy your night.

Our dedicated functions team is available to help plan your function and make your event run smoothly. We cater for small groups up to larger scale corporate or social events and have different spaces that can work for you at The Craft Embassy on The Terrace or Soul Quarter or Cascade in Stranges Lane.

Get in touch with our team today to discuss your function. 


The Craft Embassy

The Craft Embassy has a separate pavilion complex that can be made available for private functions of up to 90 people standing and sit down meals for up to 40 people.

The heated, glazed pavilion area is perfect for corporate functions, special birthdays, or other social club gatherings and includes an option for pre-booked hosted beer tastings. We offer a range of catering options from a selection of casual canapes through to more formal seated set menus.

Facilities in the pavilion include separate toilets and full audio visual options, including projector, microphone and input, enabling streaming of music from your device.

In certain circumstances we can offer a pop up bar serving up to four craft beers, a selection of wines from our menu and non-alcoholic beverages.

For exclusive use of the area the minimum spend varies depending on day of the week and time of the year.


Soul Quarter

Soul Quarter is best suited to more formal seated dinners for small groups through to 70 guests. We offer set menus or trust the chef and can cater for all dietaries. Enjoy a drink in the courtyard before joining your table in the restaurant and move on through to Cascade for live music afterwards on Friday and Saturday nights. Enquire about our set menu options.



Cascade Bar: 250
Cascade Bar Upstairs: 60
Exclusive Full Cascade Bar Hire: 250-300

Cascade specialises in custom designed cocktails, created using premium ingredients and our team’s extensive international cocktail experience. The wine and craft beer list is worth checking out with some of the best wines our region has to offer, a great range from further afield, including premium champagne bottles and specially selected craft beer. The newly installed glass entrance lobby on High Street blocks the wind to the courtyard, creating a sheltered and inviting space for after work drinks or large functions with outdoor heaters for cooler days and nights. The extensive canape menu with plenty of options to suit all palates will keep your guests coming back for more. Enquire with us to view the menu.
