Booking Details

All bookings are accepted in accordance with the following terms and conditions.

No variance to these conditions is accepted or implied by any person or employee.

To confirm your booking a non-refundable deposit of £250 is required. All cheques for deposits and final balances should be made payable to “The Speech House Hotel”.

Six months before your wedding the balance of the venue fee will become due for payment and is also non-refundable.

Final payment for the food and drink ordered and agreed at your planning meeting will be due for payment three weeks before the wedding. The final number of guests attending must be given to the hotel two weeks prior to the event. This figure or the number of guests on the day, whichever the greater, will be the basis on which the account will be reconciled.

Any additional costs incurred by the hotel will be charged for in full in the final balance statement after your day.

To comply with fire regulations we are unable to accept unprotected naked flames within the Speech House. Candles are acceptable if they are enclosed within a non-flammable container.

This web page is for guidance only, products and prices may vary by the time of your event.

Prices shown are for weddings in 2020 and include VAT at 20%

Dear Speech House Friends.

It is with great sadness that we have decided to close the hotel until further notice.

We cannot estimate when we are likely to reopen but will do so as soon as the Government indicates that it will be safe to do so.

If you have a reservation for accommodation or a function before May 31st we hope that we will be move your booking to a later date in the year.  We say May 31st but obviously that may be too optimistic.

You will be able to contact us by e mail ( ) if you do not receive an answer on the phone 01594 822607. We are planning to man the office during limited hours of the day.

We would like to thank all of you for your custom and support over the years and hope that it will not be too long before we can welcome you to The Speech House Hotel.

Best wishes and good luck in the months ahead.

Peter and Gill Hands
