We’re sorry to hear you have lost your loved one. Bereavement is a difficult time for us all. Particularly when it is someone close to you.
The funeral and wake offer a time to say your final goodbyes, surrounded by close family and friends. Here at The Lion Hotel, we hope we can help to make this process easier for you.
A wake is a time to talk about the happy times, life achievements and fond memories of your loved one. A place where you can share tears, and smiles and laugh at some of the good times you had together. Somewhere to share old photographs, anecdotes and sayings. To hold onto those memories is priceless.
So let us offer you a comfortable environment where you can spend as long as you need with your family and friends submersed in those memories.
While the funeral is the time to say your final goodbyes, when you reach the wake, it can be turned into a celebration of the life they led and of the loved ones left behind.
Wakes held at The Lion Hotel will include the private hire of either the Arkwright suite or the Strutt suite depending on expected turnout.
Many people handle bereavement differently. This includes what they find comfort in at the wake. For many, this is a simple tea or coffee that they can sip whilst discuss fond memories. For others, they may have lost their appetite since the passing, and the wake is a time where they can finally relax and tuck into the buffet. And for others, a toast to the loved one is necessary, so our bar will be open throughout the wake for you to have a drink or two to your loved one.
Here at The Lion Hotel, we know it is important to have a buffet at the wake for people to dip into while reminiscing.
Included in your buffet will be:
- Selection of Sandwiches
- Selection of Lion Pizzas
- Homemade Quiche
- Pork Pie
- Thick Cut Spicy Potato Wedges
- A Selection of Dips
- Homemade Pork Sausage Rolls
- Freshly Baked Scones with Jam & Cream
- Unlimited Tea & Coffee
