Been tasked by HP with finding a suitable venue for the evening do
A hog roast was suggested but sadly a suitable venue that's local just can't be found. I was hoping one of the local watering holes might of been glad of 50 or 60 of us supping and in return allowed us to use a beer garden etc for the piggy, however as its Easter weekend, there all expecting trade to be generally quite brisk and were a bit frosty about the idea. Local farms: means a Marque, flooring, electrical supplies etc and as its April, likely to still be a bit cool, muddy under foot, probably not what you want after a day thrashing about on the water!.
Luckily the Celtic Royal Hotel has a function room available
:. The Celtic royal is the Posh Hotel in Caernarfon, which means its only a stone throw from Premier inn / Travel lodge and all the various B+B's, its also handy for Cabs for those stopping a little further a field.
I've been down today to see the room that's available, its a screened off area adjacent to there main bar, the screens pull back allowing us to spill out after the feed (The main Ball room was booked, but at £600 a night, that's fine with me) We've got our room for £60!.
Food is either Hot Buffet at £16.50 a head, or cold at £11.95.
On the face of it the Hot buffet wins it for me, however there is only seating for about 30 in the actual room, (cant guarantee seating in bar area) so means a few might end up trying to scoff Slow braised beef standing??.
Where as we've all stood with a pint in one hand and a few buttys and sausage rolls rolling around on a paper plate in the other!
I've scanned the menus so have a look and give us some feedback, and it would be handy to know roughly how many are defo coming (pm me please).
