LET’S TALK ABOUT PAYMENT
We require payment information to be submitted upon application for membership. If a membership application is approved, we will confirm by email and the appropriate payment will be taken. Membership will commence on the day you are informed that your application has been successful.
If a membership application is approved, we will immediately take payment of the joining fee respective to the membership type. This joining fee is non-refundable.
The joining fee amount shall be fixed from time to time by the Company; and any amount so fixed shall continue in force until the Company decides on a variation. As a member, you may (at your option) pay the current annual subscription:
a) in a single lump sum equal to the current annual subscription; or
b) in quarterly instalments equal to the current annual subscription
By providing us with payment details, you as a member accept and consent to being charged membership fees in the form requested by the Club upon your application being approved or renewed. We reserve the right to amend our membership fees at any time and will notify you in advance of any changes to the amount, date or frequency of payment.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your payment information is up to date. We will make contact if any payment issues occur, however we may need to deactivate your membership until such issues are resolved.
Memberships will renew automatically on the renewal date. If you wish to not renew your annual membership, please notify us at least 30 days prior to your renewal date at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that by booking a members’ event via any of our communications channels (email, phone, member messaging service, app) you agree to the below terms:
- For events costing up to £100 we ask members for a full deposit on booking, which will be charged from your card on file.
- For events over £100 we ask members for a 50% deposit on booking, which will be charged from your card on file. The remaining balance will be settled on the night, via any of our usual methods.
- Your deposit is fully refundable up until 48 hours before the event. If you cancel your booking with less than 48 hours notice, your booking deposit will not be refunded.
- Please be aware that we do require members to have a card on file in order to book an event. To add your card details simply contact our membership team.
IF YOU DECIDE TO PART WAYS
In your first year of membership, you can cancel your membership within 14 days (the grace period) from the first payment date. We will issue a full refund (including the joining fees) via the payment information provided upon application. If you wish to cancel your membership after the first 14 days have elapsed, we will issue a refund for the unutilised months of your membership, less six months membership fees. In such circumstances, no refund will be issued for the joining fee (please refer to the above payment section).
If you wish to cancel your membership within the final six months, we are sorry to say that no refund will be possible.
Should you wish to cancel your membership, you must inform the membership team in writing via email at email@example.com.
From your second year of renewal if you wish to cancel your membership, you have a 14 day grace period to do so. You will receive a refund of your annual subscription.
If you wish to cancel any additional membership dues, such as a membership upgrade, you have a 14 day grace period to do so. You will receive a full refund on the upgrade within the 14 day period. After this time, no refund will be issued.
If you wish to re-apply after cancelling your membership, a second joining fee will not be payable, however you will need to go through the standard application process and there is no guarantee of re-approval. Prevailing membership rates will apply.
SETTLING YOUR BILL
We understand that from time to time you may not want to settle a bill on the night. By agreeing to these terms, you understand that if you elect for any bill to be charged to your account, we will collect the balance on the night of the transaction via the payment method provided upon your application.
Please note we will close your bill in each individual dining space to your card on file. Should you wish to split the bill with friends, do let us know when leaving the restaurant/space.
We welcome members with three guests any time, no questions asked. If you would like to bring a larger group for a dining reservation, please make your request in advance and we’ll come back asap, based on availability. As this will involve extending the guest allowance, we do require the names of your guests ahead of time.
We ask members to take responsibility for their guests at all times, this includes registering your guests prior to your visit with them.
We welcome registered guests who arrive without you to wait in the Manor House hall. Drinks may be purchased here and must be settled at the point of sale, unless we have agreed otherwise with you in advance.
We will charge any unsettled guest bill to your stored payment card. Please note that if you are joined by people at your table and they order food and/or drinks, any outstanding charges will be assigned to the member who made the booking.
You are responsible for your guests at all times whilst they are on the Club’s premises. Failure by your guest to comply with our Club rules will be deemed as a breach of the rules by you, whether you are present or not.

We may refuse admission to your guest and/or require your guest to leave the Club, without reason.
We are not responsible for you, your guests or any dogs. If a dispute arises, we may not be able to intervene, but of course we will do all we can to help resolve things.

For hotel guests there will be an additional room charge of £60 per dog per stay, with additional dogs charged at £60 per dog per stay. Your dog will be provided with a dog bed, foam duvet, plastic floor mats with two bowls and a poop scoop set. Dog food is not provided. Members receive a 50 per cent discount and will be charged an additional £30 per dog per stay, instead of £60.
Please be aware that all dogs should have vaccination certificates with them and are expected to have been treated in advance for worms, fleas and kennel cough.
We reserve the right to charge the card on file a reasonable fee in respect of any damage or specialist cleaning that may be required. We also reserve the right to terminate the remainder of your stay in the event that a dog is causing a disturbance.
