If you would like to provide your own cake for a special occasion, we will cut and present it on a platter for you to serve.

Prior access to your function area can be arranged but please note you will need to clean any associated mess once the club’s set-up has been completed.

Not that we’ve lost our sparkle…. but in the last in 5 years we have destroyed 15 vacuum cleaners, so no more glitter!! Please check with your decorations supplier that glitter is not in the balloons.
