Events at Gosford - Hospitality & Entertainment


Gala DinnerWhether you are looking for grandeur or informality, Gosford can provide the exact back drop you need for your event, from a celebratory Gala Dinner to a BBQ for several hundred, we have areas inside and outside that suit all types of functions.

For Gala Dinners the Large Dining Room can host up to 100 guests on round tables, with options of 36 on one long banquet table or 72 on two banquet tables. Smaller dinners can be held in either the Octagon room 50 on rounds or 20 banquet style. The Billiard Room can host 20 on a long table. With the Octagon Room immediately adjacent to the main Dining Room larger, dinners could be hosted for 150 guests using the two rooms.

For large scale dinners where guest numbers exceed 150 or require that number to be seated in one room marquees can be erected on the lawns adjacent to the house. You will still have access to the House throughout your event, as the house can cope with up to 600 guests for a reception.


Similar arrangements to the dinners can be offered, for less formal events more guests can be seated cafe style.

Although the Scottish weather can be unpredictable both lunches and dinners can be served on the balconies, The West Balcony has views across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and beyond and can host up to 100 seated guests. You are safe in the knowledge that if the weather did turn you have the ability to be seated inside.


The House can host 600 plus with ease for a drinks reception with canapés or finger food - flowing through the Marble Hall through the Gallery and into the Billiard Room and Octagon Room and the Large Dining Room, with access to the lawns both front and back from the west and east balconies.

Private parties

All ranges of private parties can be catered for, whether it is an anniversary or a birthday party. Please contact us for details.


This great stately home is available for a limited number of weddings each year. The house is ideal for hosting larger wedding celebrations, making full use the magnificent marble hall for receptions with the main dining room seating 100 guests with the adjoining Octagon room able to host an additional 50 people in equally wonderful surroundings.

Where numbers are likely to exceed 150 guests we are able to position a marquee adjacent to the house, where you and your guests will still have free flowing access to the house throughout the course of the wedding reception.

Gosford can be hired on a venue only basis or as part of our wedding package, offering you the flexibility to plan your wedding how you imagined it.
