Inkpen residents and regular bookings are always given preference.  For example, regular Inkpen club events, which only use the kitchen for coffee and tea, are £15 per session (up to 3 hours) during weekdays.  New clubs are offered a trial rate of £2 per person for a limited period.  Private bookings on weekdays are £15 per hour.  See Charges page for more information.

MARQUEE

The marquee can be hired separately.  At 10m x 4m, the marquee can seat around 30 people at tables.
