Arranging the funeral of a loved one is a daunting and emotionally stressful prospect.
It is understandable that most people choose to have a funeral director make all the arrangements.

However, organising a funeral wake for your loved one with us can ensure that friends and family experience a more personal and tailored experience. One that is perfect to celebrate the life of the deceased.

Our location is ideal for those seeking a calm and quiet space in which to mourn but still celebrate the life of their loved one.  

We can accommodate both large and small wakes.

Our buffet options include unlimited teas and coffees. Even though we are a pub, alcohol does not need to play a part in the wake if this is your preference.  

Many pubs in Kings Lynn choose to associate themselves with local funeral services and Kings Lynn funeral directors. We are completely independent which means that you can come directly to us and make arrangements for your wake.

We aim to ensure that your experience is one that provides a chance to share memories of your loved one with family and friends in a warm and respectful environment.
