Funeral Receptions

From May 17th 2021 we are in stage 3 of ‘The Road Map’ this means…..

  • Funeral Wakes are allowed up to a maximum of 48 guests with social distancing.
  • Guests must remain seated at tables other than being at the buffet table.
  • There should be a minimum of moving around the pub and a minimum of interaction between families.
  • All drinks will be table service.
  • Face coverings must be worn except when seated.

From 19th July 2021 (subject to government confirmation) all restrictions will be removed and we can offer a normal relaxed informal funeral reception for up to 80 people.


At The Stag at Walton we have years of experience of hosting funeral receptions.

Being less than 5 minutes from both Warrington Crematorium and also Fox Covert Cemetery, we are ideally placed to host your reception.

We offer a caring and discreet service which will allow you and your family to mark the occasion in the way which suits you best. Our range of buffet menus gives you the choice to offer hospitality you want.
