When a family celebration is on the horizon – perhaps a milestone birthday or a wedding anniversary – there’s always a decision to be made. Do you host a meal or a party at home, with all the organisation (not to mention the endless tidying) that this involves, or do you take away the stress and hold your celebration in a restaurant or hotel?

While the second option certainly entails less planning, it can also feel a little impersonal when your table is in a room that’s filled with other guests. If this is something that concerns you, we have the perfect solution: why not book a private dining celebration in a room that’s exclusively reserved for you, your family and friends?

Hosting private parties is something we particularly enjoy here at Deans Place Hotel. Our private dining packages can cater for groups of all sizes, from intimate get-togethers of 10 or 20, to bigger parties of 100 or more.

Our beautiful Garden Suite is an elegant space with room for up to 50 seated guests, and it’s ideal for mid-size parties. It’s a light, airy room that has stunning panoramic views of our gardens and the majestic South Downs beyond. We can decorate the room for you, but if you prefer to bring in your own table centrepieces or decorations, we’re more than happy to accommodate this.

When you hold a private party with us, you won’t just be confined to the room you’ve booked. Guests are free to make use of our gorgeous gardens, enjoy drinks on the terrace or a game of croquet on the lawn.

Award-winning dining

We’re proud to have been awarded two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence throughout the hotel. Our spring/summer set menu has just been devised by our chefs, offering two courses for £19 per person, or £25 for two courses with coffee and petits fours.

If you’d like to find out more, why not give our events staff a call? Ring us on 01323 870248 for an informal chat or to arrange a visit to the hotel. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
