Quadrant Room & Compass Bar


The venue is divided into four areas, which through impeccable architecture and interior design flow seamlessly into a stunning multi-purpose wedding reception venue. The Quadrant Room and Compass Bar work together to provide an intimate setting for both a cocktail and banquet style reception, with the Compass Bar being perfectly placed to become the location of the wedding dance later in the evening.

Earthy and elegant, Lure incorporates a natural nautical theme which is in keeping with its surroundings and existing building design. With a rock wall facade on the bar and illuminated glass top to mimic rippling water, the design utilises a contemporary yacht theme blended with natural features.

Sandglass Room


For larger wedding receptions, the Sandglass Room can be added to the floor plan providing two equally sized spaces for banquet or cocktail style located either side of the Compass Bar.

With the same wooden paneling throughout the venue, to give the luxe feel of a yacht the Sandglass room is a great compliment to the wedding reception venue. Fine rope detailing and amber glass light fittings are reminiscent of a Victorian sailing ship. In addition, the dazzling heracleum lights in both the Sandglass and Quadrant rooms represent the sparkling stars, which have guided mariners for centuries.
