Funeral Receptions and Wakes

northampton funeral receptions buffet image

The Walnut Tree Inn in Blisworth is the ideal venue for funeral receptions. The proximity to The Counties Crematorium, Northampton (10 minutes away) and the M1 and A43 along with a choice of free private rooms, plenty of free parking and guest bedrooms make this the perfect venue.

Our helpful and sympathetic staff will assist you in planning the event and providing refreshment to mourners who may have travelled some distance and be in need of sustenance, providing an opportunity for family and friends to congregate and reminisce.

For the smaller wake (up to 50 guests) our restaurant is available for private use during the day. For larger gatherings, our function room along with a private bar can accommodate up to 120 guests. Private room hire is free of charge for funeral receptions.

We offer a projector and screen to display any computer-based material, such as a slide show, and can accommodate any music requests.

For all wakes we provide flowers on the tables and play appropriate background music. We have facilities to plug in an MP3 player, iPhone or similar if you wanted to play some music you may have with a special significance.

For details of the menu options we offer, please download our funeral reception brochure. Please note that these are only suggested menus and other options are available on request.

If you would like any further information, please your interest here or give us a call on 01604 859551 and we’ll be delighted to show you around and discuss your requirements.
