"I would like to thank you and the team at The Flavel for the most perfect day I could have imagined! We had such a fun time and the venue was just right. The sound was excellent for the band and the dance floor was full all night. Your bar also proved very popular!  I really appreciate the time and effort that went into helping us plan our big day!" - C & L

If you are looking for a great, central venue in Dartmouth to hold your party or celebration then The Flavel is ideal. The Flavel is right in the centre of historic Dartmouth in the beautiful South Hams. It’s a unique, modern venue for people who want to have a great party in a relaxed atmosphere with minimal hassle.  Everything is in one place, our central location makes for easy access for guests, and we are near all the town centre accommodation. Our staff are incredibly dedicated and helpful, and will go out of their way to make sure you have the special event you have always dreamed of.


Room hire in The Studio from only £15 per hour. Wedding hire starts at £1000 for the whole building all day, or from £400 for evening parties. Extra costs are small and each contract is dealt with on an individual basis, allowing you to plan a unique reception that meets your wishes and your budget.

Personal Service

Throughout the planning stages you will have us with you every step of the way. The Flavel will provide you with one point of contact and will answer any questions you have, assisting you with any special requests you might have.


We can accommodate up to 100 guests seated or 220 unseated in the Main Hall or 40 in The Studio. We have 10 large round tables and plenty of seats so that everyone can be seated in comfort and with plenty of space to move around.


The Flavel has full disabled access at the front of the building and a lift which serves all floors.


We have beautiful drop down globes and muslins that transform our auditorium into the perfect setting. These are included in the cost of hiring The Flavel.  But if you have special requests, please feel free to ask us - we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

Catering Facilities

We have a wonderful Coffee Couture café at The Flavel that can cater for you. If you want something served from the bar that we do not stock, we can arrange to bring it in especially for you. Bar staff are included in the cost of hire. For a small extra cost we can organise for a late licence so that your party does not need to end too early!


Most people want to have bands or discos for their receptions. We have facilities for both including use of our theatre lights, modern sound system and full technical support to create the perfect ambience. The raked seating in our auditorium goes back flat against the wall allowing plenty of room for dancing the night away!

Equipment Hire

We are fully equipped for all size of events. If required, we can also provide a technician to help (there is a small extra cost for these services).


We are always willing to be flexible here at The Flavel.
