When hiring a pub for a large group in London, you are generally asked to pay according to a minimum spend model. This is a price calculated by the pub based on how much they’d expect to earn during the booking time if they were open to the public. With this in mind, it’s best to ask the venue managers whether their minimum spend will decrease if you hold your event on a less popular day of the week, for instance sometime between Monday and Wednesday. If you are hiring on a per hour or per session basis, make sure to check what is included in the price. You can also use our smart filters to find the venues that match your budget.

I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
