Fantastic New Catering Kitchen

We did it, and all thanks to you, for donating to the Kitchen Fund and supporting hall fundraising events; and the Little Cheyne Wind Farm Grants, and Rother Council Grants. We started improving the kitchen 3 years ago after consultations and identified:
a) light users
b) large scale tea and cake providers
c) occasional large event users
d) professional caterers

All had very different needs. We made easier and cheaper changes first and we have finally completed the kitchen for everyone to use. The principal architect behind the new kitchen is Rob Mortimer who carried out the work in a voluntary capacity, mainly over the Christmas period, saving the New Hall thousands of pounds. We are incredibly appreciative and grateful.

Hiring the Hall

For just £13 per hour, individuals can hire a large, light and airy hall, with a stage, professional kitchen, dance floor, heating and lighting. The standard commercial rate is £15 per hour. There is a regular booking discount of £10 per hour: You must book and pay for a minimum of 10 sessions a year. Knockabout badminton is available as a last minute booking without the use of other facilities for £6 per hour.


The hall has an entertainment licence, so you can perform, play music and watch films in the hall. The hall has an alcohol licence, but you may have to take out a temporary licence. 


We would like to thank all the people of Winchelsea, surrounding area and visitors, who donate and use the hall; the Little Cheney Wind Farm Fund, The Rye Fund, Rother Parish Council, and all the volunteers who make it happen.


We have a new professional catering kitchen.

Dance floor

Our hall has a superb dance floor. People come from miles around specially to enjoy using it.


We have a large stage, with professional lighting and a hall capacity of 120 seats, with standing room too.

Outdoor access

We have a decking area outside, which overlooks the cricket ground and beautiful views into the Brede Valley, with plenty of walks.

Hearing loop

We have very good acoustics in the hall and now we have a hearing loop too, so that people with hearing impediments can hear lectures, speeches and music.

Maintenance, repairs and improvements

We have done some amazing refurbishment to the New Hall over the past 3 years. We have an amazing new professional kitchen, new front door, electrics, lighting, curtains, kitchen boiler, heating system, defibrillator, repairs to emergency doors and there’s more to come!
