Pricing & Costs

Venue Hire Only

Prices Start At
Private hire is £800 plus a minimum spend but that really depend on date, day, time, what food offering you actually want, and whether you are upstairs (no extra hire charge at all) or downstairs, so get in touch with any more info and we can look at options. Regardless of whether you do a private hire or have the private rooms upstairs we will fully decorate the space with whatever you provide us and clear away again, saving only what you ask us to. One less thing to worry about! We have people on site from early til late 7 days a week so deliveries for your special day can be dealt with easily. Re hiring the whole venue, the music volume at the max capacity of 90 can't go loud enough for proper disco levels, (all the bodies swallow it up a bit) but is loud enough for loud background music. 70 guests or fewer and the max volume is plenty loud enough! Upstairs, the sound system goes very loud for the max numbers of 55. As an Independent serving food made from fresh onsite we can be flexible with the offering.

£12.50 per head is the buffet/nibbles price point and £37 is the 3 course meal price point, but we actually can work to any budget £12 and above to suit your needs.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Relax! Seriously, we don't need any final choices until 1 week before. Oh, and occupy the Mothers/Sisters/Friends with jobs like making/sourcing the flowers/favours/place settings, but let us dress the space!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Ceremonial Sake and Kimonos, really cool and included the Bride's family in what was a pretty traditional "British" pub wedding.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have loads of celeb locals!! South London, baby! Camberwell, Peckham & Dulwich is full of super cool creatives....
