We have had our kids parties at Grays twice. The venue is great and they offer a disco package with prizes, which I would definitely recommend. They also have a bar which is open for adults to purchase snacks/drinks, which is handy!

Grays is a café with a snooker room and has function facilities in a small village called Brenchley. We are also a working training venue for adults who are looking for work experience to then enable them to volunteer/ find employment elsewhere. We like to buy from local businesses for our free range eggs, apple juice, bacon from our local butcher. We offer a varied menu from homemade sandwiches, baps and baguettes to burgers and chips. We buy in locally made homemade cakes, including gluten free but make our own homemade scones every day. At Grays we hold local events for the surrounding communities, school holiday sessions for children, monthly family disco's, bingo afternoons for a local group. We hire out Grays for parties/functions and events. Dogs welcome.
