Funeral receptions and wakes 

About us

We are a family owned hotel, restaurant  and catering business of 35 years with a wealth of experience in catering for small family events.  Little will surprise us and a lot we can do, so do not hesitate to ask!
North Wiltshire Crematorium is a 5 minute drive as is our
local church St. Mary's Lydiard Tregoze




The Schoolhouse Restaurant and Hotel retains all original features of the former Lydiard Tregoze School. The location is quiet yet easy accessible by car from North Wiltshire Crematorium or St. Mary's Lydiard Tregoze. Nice views over the Wiltshire countryside through massive stone mullioned windows and traditional
atmosphere offer a comfortable venue for a family gathering. The large dining hall provides space for sit down events or more casual stand up receptions. Efficient staff,  good food and refreshments will help to make a celebration of life a pleasant experience. If you prefer to
host your guests at home or another venue we can deliver hot and cold food to your home or venue of your choice with temperature controlled vehicles.
