We realise that organising a funeral reception can add to the stress of losing a family member or close friend. At the Bellingham we understand what a difficult time this can be for you and your family, we would like to make the planning of the Reception Tea as easy and stress free as possible. We will ensure that your guests are welcomed at The Bellingham in person, made to feel comfortable and catered for with the level of care and attention expected on such an emotional day.

We have a selection of menus that we can discuss with you to suit all budgets. When choosing your menu you will need to consider the time the service is taking place and also if guests have travelled a long distance to attend the funeral. An afternoon tea may be suffice, but if you are looking for something a little bit more substantial, a finger buffet is a good choice. If you prefer a hot fork buffet or a more formal option, please let us know and we can arrange this.

Guest Accommodation

If you have family and friends who are travelling some distance, we would be happy to offer a discount on accommodation booked in conjunction with your reservation/function.
