There is ample free parking. Cars can park along the public highway in front of the hall and on the Old Cricket Common opposite in designated areas.

The hall does not have a licence covering the sale of alcohol. All hirers who wish to sell alcohol at their event need to obtain their own licence (Termporary Event Notice) from the RBWM. The licence for one event currently costs £21. The Cookham Dean Village Club has a Club Premises license which allows it to sell alcohol at Club events only.
There is sufficient space within the kitchen for a Bar, with a separate fridge and hatch into the hall.
For children’s parties, a small bouncy castle could be accommodated, but it is not suitable for activities such as 5 a side football, because of the suspended ceiling.
The Hall is only available for teenage parties if booked by a member of Cookham Dean Village Club. The Club member is responsible for all damage, and the hire fee must be paid in cash before the event together with a cash deposit of £250.
The Hall licence stipulates that after 11pm the music needs to be turned down, and after 11.30 it must stop completely.
The deposit cheque is only retained if damage has occurred.
