Pubs with function rooms are great places to have unforgettable parties on a budget in London. Many of our favourites will have rooms with private bars that can be hired for a reasonable cost. These spaces can accommodate a range of group sizes, including large parties. Function rooms can be used for a range of events, from birthdays to meetings, and can be found in both local pubs and more upscale breweries. 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.
London’s pubs with private function rooms are an ideal place for parties, gatherings and corporate events. These separate spaces still offer the hospitable atmosphere of a pub while also ensuring privacy for your event. There are many advantages to hosting an event in a function room at a pub, as you will have their own private service for the length of the party, and a customizable menu. Additionally, the venues are very versatile - you’ll find pub meeting rooms, large and small function rooms, and even pubs with a dance floor for a dance-off party!
Having a dedicated staff to your party is key to making sure that your event will go smoothly. Most London pubs have staff ready to attend to your guests. Many function rooms will allow you to BYO catering. However, you may also order catering either from the venue or outside vendors.
Always discuss your entertainment options with the venue manager before the event. There may be restrictions on live music or the level at which you or a DJ are allowed to play music. Also, always confirm that the function room is equipped with speakers or sound equipment, as, otherwise, you may need to provide your own.
Hiring a pub for a birthday in London is the best way to ensure beer lovers enjoy their special day! Whether it’s your 18th, 21st, 40th, or 80th, everyone loves a good night at the pub. Hiring a function room allows your party to enjoy the classic pub atmosphere without any interruptions that come with a busy night on the town. London, fortunately, has many flavours when it comes to their pub scene, so you can choose from cosy party pubs to more elegant gastropubs with a wide array of craft beers available. Cheers!
Team building activities are perfect for function rooms. It’s always a good idea to have a few nights where your team can let their hair down and have a great time hanging out with their peers outside of the office and partake in fun activities. Some good uses for a pub function room are:
Wedding receptions are always amazing events full of food, drinks, and dancing, where friends and family will gather to celebrate two people starting a new chapter in their lives. A function room is a great choice for smaller receptions and offers you the opportunity to save money by BYO options.
Breakfasts are a popular choice at many pubs across London. Having a breakfast gathering at one of the pubs listed on Tagvenue is a guarantee of a range of venues with many exciting options for an amazing meal. Whether you are searching for a gastropub with a modern twist on the classic British fry up or a traditional pub offering a full English and strong tea, you’ll find something fitting! If you find a pub room with A/V equipment, you can also host a breakfast meeting or business lunch.
Christmas parties – 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 for a Christmas party in London and feel the holiday spirit!
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 experience. You will also find pubs with semi-private areas available, such as mezzanines or open spaces at the back of the venue.
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.
London offers a great selection of cheap pubs with function rooms. Minimum spend requirements in the city often range between £100 and £1,500 per session, depending on the size of the venue.

Finally, you’ll find many great package deals anywhere between £5 and £200 per person. (All data from Tagvenue.)
London is known for its great pubs and there are quite a lot of premier venues to choose from. We have a few top-rated options to recommend:
The Regent offers a superb basement bar for gatherings. This space can fit up to 40 people in a cocktail party setting, and is ready to host a wide range of events. Located in lively Angel, this place will be sure to impress your guests.
The George and Monkey located in Clerkenwell has a few spaces, both private and shared for your party. It’s a classic London pub experience where you can kick back and enjoy a pint!
Walkers of Whitehall is a modern take on the classic English pub with luxuriously upholstered benches and atmospheric lighting. Within walking distance of Whitehall Gardens, this is an excellent choice for your next pub party.
This will depend on the venue’s rules. If you have hired it on a minimum spend basis, then you will likely need to buy your drinks from the bar, but you may be able to arrange your own catering. If you have any special needs with regards to catering or BYOB, always check with the venue manager before finalising your booking.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
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!
