As you are aware The Palfrey is out of service due to a bad fire, the good news is that if you enjoyed their food the Kitchen has set up in the Post House.

Says it all really had a great night then read that there has been a bad fire half the roof gone. Such a shame a really great place built from nothing. I just hope they are well insured and come back better than ever

We were a party of twenty plus and normally service and food dips in quality but not here. Attentive, helpful staff and lovely food. Sunday roast beef with the bonus of a pigs in blankets hidden under a yorkie. Heaven! Definitely will return.

What a great addition to the shariing menu, Hedgehog Loaf with dips washed down with a bottle of their excellent wine, cannot fault it. Bar staff are on the ball, welcoming and friendly they certainly know who to serve a drink and the Palfrey atmosphere...More

You might want to phone/email the restaurant directly for that. I know they do private hire but not sure of numbers etc.
