What do people remember from almost every event? …. the food!

At the Halliwell Centre, we are proud of our reputation for delicious food. Our talented chefs work with local produce to create fantastic dishes for all, always keeping individual dietary requirements and international preferences in mind.

If you would like to add a touch of elegance to your stay, we can arrange the option of private dining.

We are flexible with our menus and can adapt our services to meet the needs of your individual conference.
