Full Description
Charles Dickens was once a familiar visitor to this historic tavern, and the Nelson Room became famous for holding its renowned whitebait dinners. In more recent times, the Tavern has become available for private hire, and has become one of the most attractive and most popular venues in the heart of the City of London to celebrate a wedding. Our historic characteristics and charm both inside the building and out remains unchanged, with beautiful balconies and bay windows that overlook the Thames. The Nelson Room and the Hawke and Howe Bar have been recently re-furbished, and now ooze beautiful late regency magnificence. The first floor of the Tavern can be hired out in its entirety exclusively for your wedding. The venue will be available for the entire day, so there will be plenty of time for your suppliers to set up and for you to take photos of the room should you want to. The Nelson Room can accommodate up to 200 guests for a sit-down dinner, and 350 guests for a standing reception. This room is also licensed for civil weddings.

A brilliant venue in a great location. The decor and history of the rooms are fantastic, not to mention the river views. The food, drink and service were excellent. The chef came up with options that suited our guests with dietary requirements. The help from Jade and Nicolas in arranging our day really took the pressure off and nothing was too much trouble for them. We lost track of the number of guests who raved about how great our receptions was.

The Tafalgar Tavern has given us memories that we will treasure forever. The whole experience was amazing. The venue itself is just beautiful, you couldn't want for more but aside from that, the team behind it is what makes it! They were amazing. So friendly and approachable. They allowed us the freedom to make the venue are our own. Communication was great, I never felt out of touch. The venue met our every need! The running of the day was smooth and the staff were just amazing.

As a bride who did everything leading up to the wedding I really wanted a venue that would take the weight off my shoulders on the day, and TT did just that. I had complete confidence that they would make sure my day was perfect and it was. Everything happened as it should, the venue looked great on the day, the food was so much better than it was at our tasting and all our guests just raved about how cool, beautiful and lovely our wedding reception venue was. It couldn't have been more perfect!
