COVID-19 Update (Spring 2021)
In line with the government’s Roadmap out of Lockdown, Cuffley Hall will reopen to the public in stages starting on 12th April 2021. We will be following the guidance issued by ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) on which activities will be permitted at each step of the Roadmap.
The Main Hall is a superb location for those special occasions – ideal for wedding receptions, anniversary parties, concerts, plays and shows.
The adjoining bar and foyer have plenty of space for guests to gather, and the well-equipped kitchen allows you to choose between self-catering or a fully catered event. The hall and table decor can be personalised to your choice – take a look at our GALLERY page to see how skilled event decoration can transform the hall.
The Main Hall measures 55ft (16.8m) x 31ft 6in (9.6m) with a ceiling height of 16ft (4.9m). The seating capacity is 180 for shows or concerts, or up to 140 for dinners, wedding receptions, buffets etc., depending on furniture layout.
The stage is 23ft (7m) deep, with an 18ft (5.5m) proscenium, and has all necessary facilities for your choice of entertainment, including theatre lighting and a grand piano. The Public Address system extends to the bar and foyer areas, and includes an induction loop for the benefit of hearing aid users.
To maintain social distancing, the maximum capacity of the Main Hall while COVID-19 restrictions are in force will be 40. This figure is based on the floor area in square metres divided by 4.
This is a more intimate space for smaller family functions. It is also ideal for clubs and society meetings, AGMs etc. The seating capacity is 30-40, depending on furniture layout.
The small hall measures 22ft (6.7m) x 23ft (7m) and can be sub-divided by curtains to provide changing room space.
This hall is also often used as a buffet area for wedding receptions that are being held in the main hall.
To maintain social distancing, the maximum capacity of the Small Hall while COVID-19 restrictions are in force will be 12. This figure is based on the floor area in square metres divided by 4.
Cuffley Hall is fully licensed, and the air-conditioned bar is stocked with an excellent range of wines, beers and spirits.
Bar staff will be provided in accordance with the number of guests in attendance, and we aim to keep our bar prices at a competitive level.
The commercial-style kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, hobs, heating cabinets, etc. It provides all the facilites required by outside caterers, or can be used on a self-catering basis.
Refreshments may be served in the main hall via the serving hatch, and there is also a serving counter adjacent to the bar.
Most caterers will supply crockery and cutlery to suit your event, but a limited range is available at the Hall and can be used for less formal occasions.
To maintain social distancing and good hygiene control, use of the kitchen is limited while COVID-19 restrictions are in force. Organisers of community activities are asked to encourage participants to bring their own refreshments for the time being.
The south-facing foyer is bright and welcoming and makes the ideal location for smaller gatherings.
It is regularly used by local groups and charities for fundraising events such as bring-and-buy sales and coffee mornings.
The main entrance is a short level walk from Station Road, and the car park is accessible from the rear of the building via a short flight of steps. A stairlift is available for the benefit of disabled visitors.
Please note that Cuffley Hall does not have any gardens, fields or other external space so we are unable to accommodate open air events. The Maynard Place car park is shared with other village amenities and is not owned by the Hall.
