Q: What do we do about drinks?
A: We are an unlicensed venue which means you bring your own alcohol and soft drinks. We don’t charge corkage! This is a huge saving for you versus other venues! The drinks can be delivered the day before your wedding, saving room in your car.
Q: Can we have more than 40 at the wedding?
A: Yes! The dining room can seat up to 48 adults and extra children above this number can have a Pizza party in the cinema room supervised by Baby sitters. Additional adults are £75 and children £35. Baby sitters are £12 each per hour.
Q: Can we erect a marquee to accommodate larger numbers?
A: We are an elegant, intimate wedding venue therefore we don’t offer marquees.
Q: We have less than 40 people, is the package cheaper?
A: The package is for between 22 and 40 people and is a fixed price
Q: Is there accommodation for our extra guests?
A: Yes. There are eight bedrooms in the house that are yours for three nights, for your closest family and friends. In addition to this, there is a good choice of quality accommodation in the small Market Town of Hawick. This is only 2 1/2 miles up the road. We can advise you on this and help with arrangements, including taxis or a mini bus.
Q: Can we arrive earlier on the first day?
A: Yes, you can arrive at 2.30pm, rather than the usual 4pm. Please don’t arrive any earlier as we want to have the house set up perfectly for you. Your departure time is 10 am on the last morning of your stay.
Q: Can each guest choose their own selection from the food menu?
A: No, we ask you to choose one meal that your wedding party can enjoy. Of course, we can accommodate special dietary requests.

Q: What other costs should I think about above the package price?
A: Fee to your celebrant, drinks, additional accommodation and if you require extra people, personal flowers, entertainers, pianist, piper, babysitters, next day BBQ facility fee. If needed, we can help you organise these things.
