Occupying the space originally used as the Council Chamber, the Banqueting Hall is a light and spacious room with an ornate plaster ceiling.
It is furnished with a magnificent oak banqueting table which can be extended to seat between 40 and 50 guests, using a set of matching dining chairs (all with their own elephant and castle crest).
The Hall also boasts an extremely rare collapsible three tier serving table, set against the interior wall, along with a bronze bust of the late Queen Mother, who had dined in the room during a visit in 1945.
