Funeral Wakes

Close to Ripon’s beautiful Cathedral, with warm and understanding staff, we believe the Old Deanery might prove to be the ideal location. Whether you are planning a quiet commemoration or a celebratory wake, please contact us; we are here to help.

Within our lovely old building, we can offer a private room from 10 to 50 people. For the larger gathering, up to 120, the whole of the ground floor could be exclusively yours. There is a bar lounge, a car park and a large garden. We have ten bedrooms to welcome your family after their journey and give them a chance to ready themselves for the day ahead.

The following is a simple menu of afternoon tea items but there are many other choices:

Example Menu/Prices

Afternoon Tea Menu
2 home made scones, jam and cream, served with your choice of tea or coffee
£7 per person

Classic Afternoon Tea
Finger sandwiches, cake and scone served with jam, cream served with your choice of tea or coffee
£12.50

A selection of sandwiches, cake and your choice of tea or coffee
£10 per person

With scones – £12.50 per person

Other savoury buffets are available with hot or cold dishes or maybe even a sit down meal would be acceptable – please state what you would like to offer your guests, depending on the time of day and the distance they may be travelling.

We are happy to send our invoice to the funeral director if you wish.
