Committed to providing you with an excellent and dignified service

The Best Western Plough & Harrow Hotel has many years of experience in sympathetically arranging funeral teas during this difficult time.  Our management and staff will help to ensure that all arrangements are made with ease and due reverence to the occasion.

On the day our managers and staff will be attentive, yet unobtrusive and will deliver a discreet and professional service.

Whether you wish your event to be known as a Traditional Funeral Wake, or a Celebration of Life which is becoming more popular, we have the space, ambience and professionalism to allow the guests to grieve privately or talk together to share happy memories of the person that has passed.

If you wish to add personal touches on the day, such as a Memory Tree, photographs or a Memory Book, please feel free to drop it off to us in advance.

To assist in the planning of the occasion we have three Funeral tea options. However, should you require anything additional or different then please do just ask.
