If you have a reason to celebrate, to commemorate, or simply to congregate… let us make it perfect for you.


Over the years, The Kitchen has played host to many private events: from proposals and weddings to birthdays, charity and corporate events. Our team has years of experience, ideas and suggestions to share with you.  And we are lucky to be able to offer you a gorgeous setting, with beautiful décor, glorious gardens, exquisite food and great service.

Private Dining
The Kitchen is available for Private Dining for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Bespoke menus and drinks packages can be created exclusively to fit your event style and budget.

The Bar
The Bar can make a fabulous and cost effective private party space for up to 50 guests (standing).  With a DJ, cocktails and canapés your party will really rock.

Private Parties & Exclusive Venue Hire
For larger weddings and private parties, The Kitchen is a gorgeous, glamorous and versatile venue.  Take the whole day, or just half if that’s all you need; and we will be delighted to create an exclusive, unique, and very special, private hire package for you and your guests.

Corporate Events
If you’re planning a corporate event, please do talk to us.  Our team is experienced and adaptable; our venue is well-located, versatile and cost effective.  We’ve played host to many companies over the years and specialise in the automotive industry as a Ride and Drive event location.

Filming & Photo Shoots
Packed full of charm, history and character, The Kitchen makes an enviable and unique filming and photography location.

The Gardens
Our stylish terraced gardens are a great place to party.  Maybe a summer garden and cocktail party, a BBQ, or even a picnic; perhaps with outdoor music too?  Whatever your plans, we can cater for up to 120 guests, with marquee hire available if you need it.

We understand the importance of a fitting farewell. Our team will deal sympathetically and efficiently with all your needs. The Kitchen is conveniently located within a short drive of Banbury Crematorium and Cemetery and has good parking facilities.

Talk to us
To discuss all the options for your private event – we’ve got loads of experience, ideas and suggestions to share – please call Josh Tustain or Lou White on 01295 690615.
