Whether it’s just an evening reception or everything after the ceremony, Dorchester RFC is an ideal venue. There is a bar area, hall and kitchen facilities that can all be used together or separately to fit your needs. The top pitches can also be used as an outdoor space and have often accommodated marquees for events larger than the clubhouse itself can hold.

There is a full wedding brochure available –  to see it or alternatively get in touch for more information.


Depending on what exactly you require and when, prices can be negotiated and discussed, but an outline of the basic prices are as follows:


All Day (for wedding breakfast and evening reception) £300
Just Evening Reception £150
Security Deposit (fully refundable if everything left as found) £100

Use of pitch area for marquee (NOT including cost of marquee) £100

Marquee prices £POA (dependent on individual requirements)

Drinks Packages £POA (tailor made depending on individual requirements)
