Catering & Events in Taunton

Set in the heart of Taunton, the Museum of Somerset lies within the historic 12th Century Taunton Castle; a stunning Grade I Listed building which opened in 2011 after a £7 million refurbishment.

With the building’s heritage retained, the museum now houses purpose-built amenities with extensive hospitality facilities, state-of-the-art lighting and AV solutions, and public performance equipment.

The atmospheric Great Hall is recommended for the discerning guest wishing to hold a private celebration, large social event or corporate function. We can provide a cloakroom service and security, should your event go beyond 11pm. Costs apply.

We offer an extensive menu for functions, to suit all occasions, budgets and tastes. We can also create a bespoke menu to suit your needs and meet any dietary requirements. We offer home-cooked, locally-sourced food and a high quality service.

From board meetings, conferences and business breakfasts to award ceremonies and personal celebrations, the museum provides an impressive setting for any occasion.
