Pubs with Function Rooms Hire Guide

From ultra-hip breweries serving up local lagers, to traditional English pubs putting up great pub grub, Londoners are spoilt for choice when it comes to hiring pub function rooms.

What to consider when hiring a pub with a function room in London:

  • The capacity of the space – will the private room be able to accommodate all your guests?
  • Room layout – how would you like your guests to be seated? Would it be better to divide them into smaller groups or just set up a long family-style table to sit around?
  • Catering options – when you'd like to bring your own food, check whether the pub allows outside catering.
  • BYO alcohol – pubs with function rooms in London are able to provide alcohol for your party, but not all of them allow you to bring your own. Ask the venue manager if they’re OK with it ahead of time.
  • Prices – looking for a cheap venue hire option for your next get-together? Did you know that free function room hire is actually possible in London? Some pubs don’t have a hire fee – they just give you a specific minimum spend you have to meet.

What are some of the events that pubs with function rooms are good for?

  • Christmas party – when it’s cold outside, there’s nothing better than knocking back warming mulled wine or two with friends in a cosy place. Hire a pub with a function room and feel the Christmas spirit.
  • Birthdays – be it your 21st, your sister’s 30th or your colleague’s 50th, a pub in London is always a fun place to celebrate. Hire a function room and enjoy the party. Cheers!
  • Pub quiz nights – unleash your competitive spirit! Pub quizzes always mean a lot of fun, so hesitate no more, hire a function room in a pub and start the pub trivia night.

Pubs with Function Rooms in London FAQ

Do all pubs in London have function rooms?

It might be too rash to say all pubs in London have function rooms. But it’s definitely alright to say that most do. These smaller spaces are designed to offer private events some degree of privacy and space to prepare a personalised event.

What is a function room?

A function room is a private event space in a pub or other venue that can be hired for special events. It is generally a closed off space that is separated from the common area. These rooms offer you the convenience playing your own music or decorating, depending on the rules of the venue.

Can I hire a function room in a London pub for free?

Yes! Most London pubs allow guests to book their venue on a minimum spend basis which means no upfront hire fee. Essentially, you are guaranteeing that your event will spend a set amount on food or drink. If you fail to meet this price, you will be asked to pay the difference.

Guests Reviews of Pubs with Function Rooms on Tagvenue

Trudie Roiz de Sa
Booked Cellar Bar at Sir Christopher Hatton
Pub is in an excellent location and the room downstairs is perfect for a quiz night. The minimum spend was not extortionate which was one of the main reasons I booked the space. Sara is a great customer liaison and ensured everything was followed up with and everything went smoothly. Couldn't recommend highly enough!
Freddy Mills
Booked The Other Place at The Albany
Staff were very helpful, minimum spend was very reasonable compared to many other places we checked, location is right by Great Portland Street and also very close to Warren Street which was really convenient, the room was great and set up exactly how we needed it (we ran a pub-quiz style event). Would strongly recommend to anyone looking to host an event for 40+ people.
Elie Irwin
Booked Whole Venue at The Chelsea Pensioner
We hired the venue for a sports end of season party and don’t think we could have picked a better place! It’s was a perfect fit with around 150-200 of us without being too crowded! Damian helped cater for all our needs and made the whole process completely stress free. He even ordered in our favourite liquor especially and did great deals on the night! The staff were awesome and made the night super fun! The karaoke room was a huge success and all in all a grand night was had! We used our own playlist and had albums of photos up on the screens around the pub which were great personal touches!
Zahira Patel
Booked Scullery at Old Mary's
Amazing venue! We booked The Scullery for a birthday/work milestone party. The room itself is lovely, it has its own sound system and air conditioning, and we were also able to decorate it and move the tables around to create space for dancing. The staff could not have been more wonderful or accommodating, letting us in early to decorate, helping us to tend to the sound system through the night and also creating a delicious vegan option for the buffet menu upon request. Great cocktails too! Thank you so much for a really brilliant night.

Booked Function Room at The Yorkshire Grey
I hosted a charity pub quiz at the Yorkshire Grey for 50 people. It was rilliant, I hired he function room upstairs which was a great space for the occasion. Here is a bar in the room, and the bar staff were very attentive throughout the night. I would definitely recommend this place!
Booked The Drawing Room at The Marquis Cornwallis
We had such a great time at an informal party at Marquis Cornwallis that we went back for another! The pub has a nice atmosphere and a great range of beers. They have a larger room for hire upstairs but we reserved a corner of the bar area that has room for 20 or so seated and 30 or so if some are standing. The team were very flexible and accommodating with arrangements. We were able to bring balloons and a birthday cake. The buffet food is very good, made in-house and much more imaginative than offered elsewhere. There was a good range of vegetarian options and the friend with a nut allergy was content without special arrangements on both occasions.
