Antelope – The Rankin Room

The Rankin Room at the Antelope is situated on the ground floor with easy access to the garden, dining room and main pub area. In this large, high ceilinged room with it’s own bar,  a pretty courtyard, large screen and in house sound system the sky is the limit when it comes to possibilities. The staff and venue are very flexible and know how to set the perfect atmosphere for any event, and if required our Chef is more than happy to cater it, be it for a formal wedding reception, team building event or a birthday party with a band or a DJ..
