I have a large group training taking place in one of the rooms. How do I order food ahead of time so that it is ready for the break time? What about Coffee?

If the hirer would like to cover the cost of lunch, we can provide you with the menu ahead of time and attendees can choose from the Coffee Lounge menu. This will be invoiced with the hire charge. We require the order ahead of the hire day or at the start of the day when the kitchen first opens. If attendees are to pay for their own lunch, we ask that they order at the start of the day, so the kitchen can prepare in time to avoid the lunch rush. Please be aware that if attendees wait until their lunch break and order then we cannot guarantee their order will be ready within their lunch time. We can also offer a pre-arranged option depending on the day and time, starting from £5 per head. For groups we offer filtered coffee and tea at £1 per head per round. This will be invoiced with the hire charge. The urns will be placed in your room or near your room with cups, spoons, milk, sugar etc. You need to order this option in advance and let us know at what times you would like the tea and coffee served. For less formal meetings we can offer the option of a donation pot for tea and coffee with the urns. Tabs can be set-up on the day for food and drinks, but please clear this with your organisation.

Can I cancel my booking?

Yes, you can cancel the booking, but charges do apply depending on the notice given. Please refer to the booking and hire policy that you will have signed when making the original booking for more information.

Is there public transport?

The Pelham can be reached by Stagecoach bus- numbers 95, 98, and 98A. The stop is ‘Wrestwood Road’, but it is actually located on Holliers Hill opposite the BP garage. (Stop ID: esuaptjw). The bus stop is less than a 1 minute walk fromThe Pelham. We are a 20 minute walk from Bexhill Train Station.

Can I bring my own food and drinks?

Yes, you can bring your own food to use for meetings and events in the hireable rooms, if it is prepared off site. However you cannot bring your own food to eat within the Coffee Lounge. Unfortunately, we cannot offer use of microwaves or ovens to heat up food. If you have more questions about bringing in food from home, please ask. You can bring in your own drinks, but if you require hot water, cups, plates, and cutlery we impose a minimum charge of £5, please ask us about this option if you are considering bringing your own drinks. We often find it is more cost effective to go with our refreshment options.

Where are the toilets?

There are male and female toilets located off The Coffee Lounge. There is also a single toilet attached to Function Room. There are 3 toilets and 1 disabled toilet with a Hoist and a full size changing bed.  Baby changing facilities are located at the end of the hallway on the 1st floor.

Is there a lift?

Yes, we have a platform lift for those that require step-free access to the 1st floor.

What kind of parking do you have?

The Pelham has a car park located behind the building, which is signposted from the road. Access to it is from Holliers Hill and the entrance is located next to the post box and bus stop and opposite the BP garage. The car park is free, but we cannot guarantee a parking space and vehicles are parked at owner’s risk. Spaces are on a first come basis and can fit approximately 30 vehicles. The car park can become very busy at times and we ask you to be careful when parking and leaving as we cannot accept any liability for vehicles in the car park. Free parking is available on the residential streets surrounding The Pelham when the car park is full.

How do I make a room booking?

Please email to make an inquiry or ring 01424 576304. If you enquire in person, we will ask you to fill out the booking enquiry form and return it to us and we will contact you shortly after.

I have a dietary requirement, will your Coffee Lounge menu accommodate me?

We want The Coffee Lounge to be somewhere that anyone can eat and always try to provide vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options. Gluten free options may not always be listed, but we normally can make menu items gluten free upon request. If you have a dietary requirement, please let a member of the team know and we will do what we can to best cater for you.
