The Emsworth Suite offers a light, bright and flexible space for a wake

Close to ‘The Oaks’ crematorium with lots of free parking

The Emsworth B&B Hotel is an independently run establishment with a strong focus on customer service. We understand that the time following a bereavement can be challenging and our team are here to ensure things run smoothly. 

We can offer function spaces for 10 to 120 people in our purpose built Emsworth Suite. We have 30 en-suite bedrooms, should an overnight stay be needed.

Each room has a 75” screen, built-in audio and disabled access. We also have a large free car park.

We can arrange buffet style or afternoon tea menus delivered by our experienced team using locally sourced produce and all freshly made on-site. 

Wine and drinks can be included in arrangements, we can also provide flowers and play specific music on request; just let us know what you would like included.
