Following the service, refreshments can be served in the foyer which can hold 20 – 100 people. Opening onto the veranda and gardens, the foyer provides a tranquil space for everyone to gather with cooling, heating and a central fireplace.

A bar is located at the end of the foyer for service of beverages, tea and coffee stations are set up for easy access and food is displayed around the foyer for guest convenience. To make your guests comfortable, a range of lounge furniture is provided while still leaving ample standing room for those wanting to mingle.
