Either the owner or the housekeeper will be present to welcome you to Sugnall Hall and show you around. They will explain where to find the various rooms and facilities and how to operate the heating and other services. Obviously, they will be there to answer any queries.
Some parties like to be fully catered for. The caterers use the ‘back kitchen’, a purpose-made Victorian kitchen with walls of white-glazed bricks. You will be given the names of suitable local caterers with whom you can discuss your requirements. We can also provide sandwiches and hampers if you will be out.
If you wish to undertake some self-catering for yourself, we would discuss with you which particular meals this will apply to and whether you would still wish for help in clearing up and washing up. For this purpose there is a fully equipped kitchen with a double AGA, electric cooker, large freezer and washing-up machines, and you are welcome to borrow our crockery and cutlery.
We can put you in touch with a wine merchant who can supply alcoholic and soft drinks by the bottle or can. You can select from his extensive range of wines, and he can deliver to the hall. At cocktail parties and formal dinners staff can be provided to serve and wash up. The charge on such occasions is normal bar prices.
There is a self-service bar in the drawing room with spirits and other drinks available. Your own drinks can be kept in the kitchen fridge.
For parties of up to 16 dining takes place in the dining room. The Billiard Room can accommodate 40 seated tables, 80 seated and 120 standing. Menus are pre-agreed and our chefs can cater for all dietary and religious requirements.
The oak-panelled Billiard Room is also available, which can comfortably accommodate 100 people. It is ideal for less formal events where music is required and where buffets are preferred.
Apéritifs and after dinner drinks can be taken in the triple aspect sitting room, which features hand-printed Chinese wallpaper, and enjoys views out over the lawns and formal gardens.
It is also the perfect setting for a relaxing morning coffee and an indulgent afternoon tea.
With 14 beautifully appointed, individually styled rooms and suites Sugnall can accommodate up to 28 guests.
Outside, there are 4 acres of traditionally styled formal gardens, with expansive well-maintained lawns, which provide uninterrupted panoramic views over the surrounding Staffordshire countryside.
We will do our best to provide any extras that you want. For example we can supply newspapers if desired, and the Billiard Room is equipped for film shows. If you want a pianist, or bar with barman or a butler, we can supply. Just ask.
We can provide a maid service for washing up, washing and/or ironing; please raise this with the housekeeper.
