This stunning new wedding venue is being built in East Yorkshire

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 1 Jan 2019

Construction is underway at a new £400,000 wedding and events venue in East Yorkshire.

The Manor Rooms is being developed at Drewton’s farm shop near South Cave, after businesswoman Katie Taylor secured a £115,000 grant from a European fund.

The new venue will support a number of full-time and part-time jobs, and is expected to open in May 2019.

Katie Taylor said: “For the last eight years, we’ve been providing a bespoke catering service for private functions, but we decided to develop a completely new venue in response to demand from customers keen to stage larger weddings and events with us.

“It means that we can offer a comprehensive service to our customers, with full catering and bar facilities in a modern, exclusive, barn-style wedding venue.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the financial backing that we’ve received from the European Union’s European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), which is aimed at boosting the economy in rural areas.”

The new venue will include a large function room, a smaller space, an outdoor terrace and a seating area surrounding a fire pit.

The Manor Room will be able to seat 150 guests for weddings and parties, or up to 225 people standing for food festivals and other events.

Sir Gary Verity DL, chief executive at Welcome To Yorkshire, said: “It’s great to see this investment in East Yorkshire allowing a successful, rural business to develop and expand even further.

“The creation of The Manor Rooms is a real boost for the local economy, creating new jobs and bringing even more visitors to this picturesque part of the county, which will undoubtedly benefit other local businesses too.”

Catering will be provided by the same award-winning team responsible for the creative menus on offer at Drewton’s.

“The interior will have a contemporary yet luxurious, country vibe, with rustic wood panelling and exposed beams, and the menus will reflect our commitment to championing local, seasonal produce," Ms Taylor said.

"In keeping with the trend for more casual dining, we’ll be offering a range of menu options.

"For example, our lamb can be served as a traditional roast with all the trimmings, carved at the table, or Lebanese-style with tabbouleh and flat breads for a more modern and relaxed approach."
