The Moot Hall

The Moot Hall

Taking its name from the original Town Hall…

…The Moot Hall is the largest of our function rooms and is adorned with baroque architectural features. As it has done for centuries, this suite hosts the infamous Oyster Feast every year. We also hold the annual Mayor Making event here along with other civic functions.

The Moot Hall is therefore the ideal venue for hosting a party or special event, with a beautiful backdrop and hundreds of year’s worth of celebratory history. It has a stage for DJ’s or bands, the vast space to suit various table layouts to seat your guests and a PA system with wireless microphones ready for those memorable speeches.  So put on your glad rags and slip on your dancing shoes and let us give you an event to remember.

The Moot Hall also offers great facilities for corporate ventures, whether you need a large space for networking or exhibitions, staging to deliver that all important seminar,  or a big business lunch.

With state-of -the-art Audio Visual equipment perfect for presentations and access to Wi-Fi, it is ideal for accommodating business meetings in a relaxed environment, getting you out of the office.

The room is situated on the top floor of the Town Hall and can be accessed by the grand staircases. It is also accessible via a lift which stops at the top floor.

There are male and female toilets as well as a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.
