Guarlford Village Hall

Guarlford village hallGuarlford Village Hall can be hired at very reasonable rates. Situated in an old malthouse it has been a village hall since 1922 and a registered charity since 1949, all achieved by Guarlford residents from the past.

It has an attractive function room with exposed beams which give it a character all its own

The kitchen has a good supply of crockery and because the function room is on the first floor there is a stair lift for the disabled.

There are ceiling and wall heaters to keep the function room warm in the cold winter months.
