Gala Dinners

The Duke's Grand Ballroom. A perfect venue for your conference Gala dinner.

The Duke's grand ballroom with ornate ceilings, low hanging chandeliers and polished wooden floor boards opens up directly onto a sun filled deck over looking the sea. The ballroom is filled with individually upholstered chairs seating up to 150 guests comfortably or 250 for a standing cocktail and canape function. We can also cater for larger groups seating up to 300 guests across the ballroom and restaurant over the quieter winter months of the year.

With award winning chefs and restaurant managers, the Duke offers exquisite cuisine and exceptional service. The Duke has an onsite function manager to help plan the menu and all other details of your gala dinner to ensure a smooth, professional experience.
