Celebration of life & wake packages

The passing of a Loved One is always difficult and you will want to celebrate their life in your own way.

The White Horse offers the perfect location, with flexible spaces for up to 65 guests and delicious food options. We’re easy to find and offer ample parking for your guests.

We can offer you various buffet options, with unlimited Tea & Americano Coffee.

With a warm and caring atmosphere, you will be allocated your very own, experienced Host who can liaise with your chosen Funeral Director if requested.

Relax in the knowledge that everything will be taken care of.

We can provide a delicious sweet and savoury buffet. 

Please speak to us about any dietary requirements or specific requests.


Sample buffet menu

What's included?

Remembrance table

We’ll set up a table ready to welcome your favourite framed photos or special nostalgic items that you want to display on the day to create a focal point where guests can gather to share stories. An idea might even be to add a Guestbook to the table for people to leave messages as a keepsake after the event. 


We have a number of screens that can play memorable photographs or videos.  All we need is a memory stick with the information required to play for the duration of the event. 

Fully stocked bar

We carry a vast array of drinks and provide a Tea and Americano Coffee station for guests to help themselves.
