The business operates as one of the premier function venues within the wider area and is exceptionally popular as it holds a Wedding Licence and is able to support three independent functions at any single time. The business began in 2007 and has been developed into an excellent business with a good reputation as a function venue but, unfortunately they have had to consider retirement earlier than planned due to ill health.
Our clients operate the business on limited hours usually three days per week, from a Friday to Sunday. Despite the limited trading hours, sales for the financial year ending 31 March 2018 show sales of £221,689 exclusive of VAT.

The Guest Keen is a well established function venue that has been operated by our clients since 2007, during which time it has built an excellent reputation. The property has formerly operated as the Guest Club but, the Grade II listed property was originally built in 1863 as the Guest Memorial Library and Reading Room. As a memorial to Sir Josiah John Guest as commissioned by Lady Charlotte Guest in memory of her husband.
