We’re sure that as you reflect on 2017 and look ahead to 2018, you will be considering where and how best to mark the very special occasion of one year passing and another year’s arrival.
You could, of course, simply spend it at home, but we’ve got another idea – heading to our very own Regency Park Hotel in Berkshire for either of the big events we have planned for this New Year’s Eve.
What makes us a great New Year’s Eve dinner venue?
Our popular hotel between Newbury and Thatcham offers a wide range of advantages to those staying with us, including strong road and rail connections, contemporary-styled and comfortable bedrooms and all of the tourist attractions of the wider Royal County of Berkshire.
However, these are benefits of which you can take advantage at any time of the year you fancy staying with us. The New Year period is a very special time indeed, so it calls for something special by way of celebration, at a special New Year’s Eve dinner venue.
We’re planning two such events for New Year’s Eve that help to make Regency Park Hotel the place you have to be as 2017 becomes 2018. Whether you opt for our simply magnificent Black and White Ball in our Parkland Suite, or the slightly less formal Buffet & Boogie in the Watermark Restaurant, we can guarantee that you’ll have quite the fun time.
Choose the event that will make your New Year unforgettable
While both of these events can be booked right now, you will need to consider which one interests you most. So, what can you expect at each one?
We’ll start with the Buffet & Boogie, which will involve a no-nonsense two-course meal and disco that will enable you to celebrate the coming of the New Year in unpretentious style. Celebrations are set to start in the Club Bar, while the main dishes from which you can choose include the likes of Mexican Cajun chicken, beef stroganoff and salmon supreme, followed by a selection of desserts.
Well-priced non-residential and residential packages are available for our Buffet & Boogie, but if you are looking for the most splendid imaginable evening of dining and entertainment to welcome in the New Year, you just can’t top our Black and White Ball. It consists of a canapé and drinks reception prior to a whopping six-course meal, with a magician and resident DJ on hand to entertain you over the course of the evening. It’s a dress code of black tie and evening dress for this one!
Secure your place now on any of our remarkable events
If you have any doubt at all as to where you will be on New Year’s Eve this year, we think you might just have found the perfect venue!

The Royal County of Berkshire is a far-from-shabby place to spend one’s festive season, given that it is – after all – good enough for the Queen herself! Indeed, you may have been planning to spend a lot of time in Berkshire during December anyway, whether to visit any of the county’s many acclaimed tourist attractions, or as part of a wider London or South East England break.
However, if you want a Christmas Day dining experience befitting a royal county, we would suggest that you head to just one place: our own chic and sophisticated venue here at Regency Park Hotel.
What makes Christmas Day dining with us so special?
Here at Regency Park Hotel, we realise that there are plenty of other places in the UK – or for that matter, the world – where you could conceivably enjoy a great Christmas Day lunch. So why should you be booking your place at our own Christmas Day Luncheon?
Well, first of all, there’s the location to consider. We are brilliantly situated for those based throughout London and the South East of England, as shown by our proximity to the M4 and A339 and excellent rail connections to Newbury and London Paddington. Our exact location – between Newbury and Thatcham – is also wonderfully tranquil.
But of course, the food that we are set to serve at this year’s Christmas Day Luncheon will also be very special. Imagine, after Champagne on arrival, being able to choose between such starter options as cream of truffled mushroom soup, pressed game terrine and grilled polenta cake, before moving onto main dishes like roast rib eye of beef, pumpkin ravioli and grilled bream fillet.
It’s all rounded off with a similarly fabulous selection of desserts, ranging from layered chocolate mousse and passion fruit and mango cheesecake to sticky toffee pudding and Christmas pudding with brandy sauce. When we say that we do Christmas Day dining, we mean it!
Act now to secure your place
There’s one more great thing about our Christmas Day Luncheon that we would like to share with you... its price. You’ll be paying just £75 for every adult in your party, and £37.50 for each child between the ages of three and 12. It means you really can enjoy a marvellous Christmas Day lunch in Berkshire at a price that represents excellent value, given the incredible skill and attentive, yet discreet service of our dedicated team of chefs.
Why hesitate to make your provisional booking for what promises to be a truly magnificent Christmas lunch? Alternatively, download our comprehensive festive-season brochure to see what else we have planned over the coming months, covering the full gamut of Christmas and New Year celebrations.

It might already seem that there are plenty of great reasons to join us over the Yuletide period – after all, we are an excellently located hotel, in a peaceful setting and with strong travel connections to wider Berkshire and London. We are also home to no fewer than 108 comfortable and well-equipped bedrooms, together with dining and health club amenities that have long been the envy of other hotels across the region.
However, there’s another very special reason to book time with us this Christmas and New Year – the amazing assortment of events that we have planned, and which are helping to make us one of the Christmas celebration venues to be seen at in Berkshire this season.
So, what have we got lined up?
You only need to download our complete Christmas brochure to see that we’ve got festive events planned that will appeal to every possible desire and taste this year. Whether you wish to dine in style with your nearest and dearest in our renowned Watermark Restaurant, or perhaps enjoy a Festive Afternoon Tea or even party the night away, it’s all possible this season right here at Regency Park Hotel.
An obvious highlight of our festive events calendar this year is our Christmas Day Luncheon. It’s set to take place in the Watermark Restaurant, with our dedicated team of chefs preparing a magnificent lunch for our diners. It’s the perfect place to be on this most special day of the year, not least given that Santa will also be visiting with gifts for all of the children!
Nor does the fun let up after 25th December, as you are also welcome to join us for our delicious Boxing Day Buffet, or – for something truly remarkable – our magnificent New Year’s Eve Black and White Ball. With the initial canapé and drinks reception being followed by a six-course meal and a magician and resident DJ also in attendance to get everyone in the perfect mood, you’ll be really sorry to miss it!
Alternatively, if you would like to see in 2018 in a slightly more informal and relaxed fashion, we’d be delighted to welcome you to our well-priced two-course New Year’s Eve Buffet & Boogie, in – yes, you’ve guessed it – the Watermark Restaurant.

December is a very special time in Berkshire for so many reasons – not only because of the celebrations on 25th December itself, but also due to the many exciting and inspiring events leading up to the big day. Of course, the county is also home to many fine country houses and other attractions with their own plans to mark Yuletide.
There’s a lot going on in the county in the coming months
Glance over the Christmas 2017 events calendar for Berkshire, and you’ll see no shortage of fairs and markets that will help to get you into the festive mood, ranging from the Mapledurham Festive Gift Fair in Reading on 10th November and the Sandhurst Crafters Annual Christmas Fair on 18th November, right through to the Purley on Thames Christmas Market on 26th November and the Christmas Market at Bearwood College in Winnersh on 2nd December.
Alternatively, or perhaps in addition to these events, you might fancy touring the various National Trust properties in the region that are planning their own festive activities. With the likes of Basildon Park, Cliveden, Greys Court and Sandham Memorial Chapel all marking this wonderful time of year in their own ways, you might find your Christmas schedule in Berkshire filling up quickly, even before you start considering the region’s festive lunch venues.
We give you more options than any other Christmas lunch venues in Berkshire
There are a lot of factors that might dictate your choice of Christmas lunch venue – but we’re confident that we’ve covered all of them here at Regency Park Hotel.
You may be especially anxious to ensure that your chosen venue is easy to reach, which makes it handy that Regency Park Hotel is located just 10 minutes from the M4 and A339. Alternatively, you may want lots of flexibility in terms of when you can have your festive lunch at the given venue – and sure enough, you can book such lunches in our Watermark Restaurant for between 12noon and 3pm from Monday to Friday throughout December.
We are also set to hold well-priced Christmas Celebration Nights on various dates from 25th November onwards, presenting you with the opportunity to enjoy a delicious three-course dinner before dancing the night away with the help of a first-class disco.
Then, there is the ultimate festive event of ours that you just cannot miss – our Christmas Day Luncheon, at which you can enjoy a magnificent lunch prepared by our dedicated team of chefs, with all of the attentive yet discreet service you would expect. Oh, and Santa will also be in attendance to present gifts to all of the children!
It all means that you need not continue your search for Christmas lunch venues in Berkshire – here at Regency Park Hotel, we can offer it all. Find out more today, including how to book, by downloading our complete Christmas brochure.

The welcoming in of a New Year is a very special event indeed, and you might have particularly strong reasons to mark it in the utmost style this year. Maybe you’ve had an immensely successful 2017 and would like to see out the year in a similarly brilliant way, or perhaps the last 12 months were difficult ones and you are looking to greet 2018 with greater optimism?
There is, though, a lot to think about when picking a New Year’s Eve dinner venue. There are obviously certain practical requirements to bear in mind, such as ensuring the venue is easy to reach from wherever you are based.
However, you will also want to choose a venue that has the right look and atmosphere, which may just make the unashamedly contemporary Regency Park Hotel the best option of all.
Take your pick from our amazing New Year’s Eve packages
Given that we host a packed programme of festive events here at Regency Park Hotel – as you can find out about by downloading our comprehensive Christmas brochure – you might have thought that we’d be tired out by the time New Year’s Eve rolled around.
But as anyone who has spent New Year’s Eve with us before will tell you, that is very far from the case! In fact, we have two dinner packages for you to choose from – our glamorous Black and White Ball in our Parkland Suite, or the less formal Buffet & Boogie set to take place in our Watermark Restaurant.
As you might have guessed from its name alone, our Black and White Ball is simply magnificent, involving everything from a magician entertaining you on arrival to a resident DJ who will be playing your favourite tunes to celebrate 2017 becoming 2018. The dress code is black tie for gentlemen and evening dress for ladies, and the canapé and drinks reception is followed by a highly memorable six-course meal.
The New Year’s Eve Buffet & Boogie, meanwhile, is a rather different affair, with celebrations starting in the Club Bar, followed by a two-course buffet. Then, all that will be left to you will be to party the night away with a little help from our highly capable DJ.
Secure your place on either of our New Year’s Eve nights
With both non-residential and residential packages available for both of the above mentioned nights, you could hardly expect to choose a better New Year’s Eve dinner venue this year. Stay with us overnight, and you won’t have to worry about your transport plans for when the celebrations come to a close – and you’ll get to enjoy even more of our chic and modern hotel.
When it’s an amazing New Year’s Eve dinner venue you are seeking, don’t look any further than Regency Park Hotel!

The historic county of Berkshire is
a highly desirable and convenient place to stay over the Christmas period, even
before you consider the specific merits of a leading local hotel like Regency
Park Hotel – or for that matter, the fine Christmas Day dining opportunities that we have lined up
for you, your family and friends.
After all, Berkshire itself is a pleasant part of the UK that’s always running interesting festive events, and where you’ll find no shortage of attractions, including the likes of Legoland Windsor and Windsor Castle. Head deeper into central London, and you’ll come across enough touristic delights to occupy you regardless of your length of stay.
However, there’s one especially great reason to head in the direction of Regency Park Hotel this winter – our Christmas Day Luncheon that represents the perfect way to celebrate this special time of year with your pals and loved ones.
A family-friendly occasion for everyone to enjoy
Now, you would expect a Christmas Day Luncheon to feel suitably Christmassy, and that’s certainly true of ours, not least because Santa himself will be visiting with gifts for all of the little ones in attendance! However, the meals themselves – as prepared by our dedicated chefs in our renowned Watermark Restaurant – will also have a festive vibe.
You might follow up the glass of Champagne that is provided on arrival with such a starter as a cream of truffled mushroom soup with toasted focaccia, dill cured smoked salmon or a grilled polenta cake. Then, we’ll be serving lemon sorbet, before you help yourself to one of our mains options, which include roast turkey, grilled bream fillet, roast rib eye of beef and pumpkin ravioli.
That leaves the matter of what dessert you’ll be tucking into towards the end of your evening! How does a passion fruit and mango cheesecake with tulie chip sound, or a sticky toffee pudding with caramel sauce and honeycomb ice cream? Oh, and with this being the time of year it is, we’ll also give you the option of a fabulous Christmas pudding with brandy sauce.
Coffee and chocolate truffles will also be served on the night to get everyone present even more into the festive spirit.
But that’s not all that’s happening this season
As you can see when you download our Christmas brochure, there are many more events other than our Christmas Day Luncheon that you might not want to miss this season here at Regency Park Hotel. So whether it’s Christmas Day dining or any of our other seasonal events of which you wish to take advantage, why hesitate to contact us now so that you can book your place?

There are a lot of characteristics that you might consider the ‘best’ Christmas celebration venues to have. Maybe, for you, it is the atmosphere rather than necessarily the finer practical points that may principally concern you. Or perhaps you would like to hold a festive party somewhere that is well-connected to local road networks, so that you can be sure of all of your intended guests reaching the venue without getting lost?
Whatever your exact priorities when it comes to Christmas celebration venues here in the glorious Royal County of Berkshire, we are confident that we can cater to them all at Regency Park Hotel. We have, after all, just launched our Christmas brochure, which details our packed schedule of Christmas and New Year events that we’re pretty confident you won’t want to miss.
Why make us your choice of festive lunch or party venue?
If you’ve never before visited or stayed at Regency Park Hotel, you’re in for a treat. We are an unashamedly chic and modern hotel situated in a wonderfully tranquil spot between the towns of Newbury and Thatcham, a mere 10 minutes from the M4 and A339. Our hotel boasts no fewer than 108 comfortable and well-equipped bedrooms, as well as a complement of impressive suites and such amenities as a restaurant and health club.
However, we are under no illusions that many of you who visit us during November, December and January will be most allured by our Christmas and New Year events themselves, and you can rest assured that we have a lot lined up for you, your family and friends to get hyped about this year.
From Festive Lunches and Afternoon Teas to our enthralling Christmas Celebration Nights and prestigious Christmas Day Luncheon, right through the season, there are special events taking place. Even once all of the gifts have been opened, we have Boxing Day Celebrations, our New Year’s Eve Black and White Ball and a New Year’s Eve Buffet & Boogie to keep you in the celebratory mood until you are forced to leave us and return to work (we can’t control that one, unfortunately!).
Book your place with us for this Christmas
Alternatively, of course, you can arrange your own private Christmas party in one of our resplendent suites. It’s up to you, and we’re accepting bookings right now – so don’t hesitate to browse our complete Christmas brochure, before getting in touch to reserve your desired event or date, time and suite.

celebration venues in Berkshire may be offering, they’ve got nothing to match

You are likely to be very discerning about what your wedding venue should be like. This special day you are preparing for is, after all, supposed to be the happiest of your life. However, here at Regency Park Hotel, we offer various features and amenities to help to make your big day extra-special.
We can make wedding preparations less arduous
There are undoubtedly many different aspects of a wedding that you have to carefully account for during the planning stages. However, when you make Regency Park Hotel your choice of venue for the nuptials, you can be assisted by our professional Wedding Planner.
They can provide guidance on various subjects - including what to include on the menu, who should provide the entertainment, and how everyone can enjoy a big knees-up after the vows have been exchanged. You shouldn't underestimate our ability to meet your specific wedding needs...
What do you want from a wedding?
Whatever your specific answer to this question, you may be pleasantly surprised by how many of the crucial boxes we can tick. For instance, if your wedding is set to take place strictly during the day, we can give you exclusive access to our Watermark restaurant.
On the other hand, you might have an evening reception in mind, particularly if you and your significant other have already got married overseas. Whether it will be light or dark outside, the two of you can enjoy special times in our suites of chic and contemporary style.
We offer various wedding packages from which you can choose; however, if none of them meet with your satisfaction, you have the option of a bespoke service instead. It's your choice.
A lovely setting that can be easily reachedIf you have much experience of Berkshire, you will already be able to vouch for its abundant beauty. You will therefore probably already have a sense of how much your guests will enjoy the scenery even while making their initial travels to our private events venue in Berkshire.
Nor is our venue
difficult to reach, being located between
Newbury and Thatcham. That's a real boon for everyone coming to the wedding –
so why not get in touch today about booking your big day with us?

Of all of the places in Berkshire that you might imagine would be ideal for busting a move, pulling some shapes and generally just partying until the small hours, a hotel - especially not one in such a tranquil part of the county as Regency Park Hotel - might not be the first option that comes to your mind.
However, when you're on the lookout for a party hall for hire in Berkshire, you can't beat Regency Park Hotel - for more than a few reasons. Here are just three of them.
1. Our location!
Yes, you may associate Berkshire with the Queen and Windsor Castle, but there's so much more to this fascinating county than links to British royalty.
After all, Berkshire is home to a broad assortment of attractions, ranging from country houses like Basildon Park to religious buildings such as the ruined Reading Abbey.
Even if you don't intend to explore wider Berkshire in the hours leading up to the party you're hosting with us, our location is great for sheer convenience - we're a mere 10 minutes away from the M4 and A339, and the rail links into Newbury and London Paddington are pretty handy, too.
2. You can stay overnight with us
Unlike many a party hall for hire in Berkshire, Regency Park Hotel offers you and your attendees a place to rest your heads after all of that fun - quite a handy thing if you might not be in the ideal state to head home at the end of a long night.Our hotel consists of no fewer than 108 comfortable and stylish bedrooms, in fact, complete with all of the amenities that you could conceivably need when you're winding down after the night's events. Hypoallergenic pillows and duvets, ironing facilities, digital LCD televisions and complimentary wireless broadband are all provided in our rooms and suites.
3. We've done it for so many others before
Even if your chosen party venue ticks all of the other obvious boxes, it's worth considering how experienced it is at holding all manner of other special events.
We've long hosted such events as Christmas celebration nights, baby showers and weddings here at Regency Park Hotel, so we're a dab hand at organising every last detail of an event to ensure its success. You won't have to worry about amateurish mistakes with us - our team runs like clockwork.
With these strengths and many more
to commend it, do you really need to consider any venue other than Regency Park
Hotel when you are on the hunt for the perfect party hall for hire in
