Pub ideas

Actor Rhys Ifans once stated that a pub can be a magical place; a true Londoner doesn’t need further explanation. After all, pubs are an essential part of British culture – no wonder many people want to use them for celebrating life’s special moments. Here are some of the events people hire pubs for in London:

  • wedding – a pub is one of the best choices for a laid-back wedding reception. Add a vintage touch with retro cutlery and table decor or hire a traditional British pub that serves up comfort food classics your family will love. London offers a wide variety of pubs with function rooms for hire, so you can be sure to find something that suits your needs.

  • leaving party – saying goodbye to one of your coworkers? Maybe your friend is leaving the country? Why not throw a truly British farewell party? Find a pub for hire and enjoy quality time together over a nice cold pint.

  • team building – after a hard day’s work it’s time for some pleasure. Tagvenue can help you find a pub for hire in the city centre or in any other district of London. Bring your team together for some pub quizzes, delicious pub grub and ice-cold ales.

  • Christmas party – ho, ho, ho, how about celebrating in ye olde watering hole? When it’s cold outside, get cosy and feel the Christmas spirit in a London gastropub.

Here are some more tips you may need when hiring a pub:

  • think about the type of catering that would work best for your event – ask the venue manager whether you’re allowed to organise external catering or if BYO alcohol is prohibited or not. London is a popular foodie destination, so it’s easy to find a place with an exceptionally tasty menu!

  • decide what kind of food you’d like to see on the menu – are your guests into fish and chips, and burgers? Or maybe they’d prefer something a little more gourmet? Think about main courses as well as beer snacks. Make sure to check if any of your guests have special dietary requirements, too.

  • think about what size venue you need – sizes of pub function rooms vary, so ensure the venue you’ve chosen is big enough to accommodate all your guests.

  • work out which location would be most convenient – are you looking to hire a local pub with a free function room, do you need a traditional London pub in the city centre or are you looking for modern venue near London Bridge?

  • don’t forget to organise any A/V equipment you might need – do you have to bring your own or can the venue provide it? And don’t forget to ask about the pub’s loud music events policy.

What people say about Pubs on Tagvenue

Pete Byrd
Booked Whole venue at The Cavendish Arms
Really great venue for a party. The staff were amazing. I would totally recommend the Cavendish.
Mark Barry
Booked Whole pub at The Hat and Tun
Lovely pub, good location and a perfect size for my birthday (40-50 people, could take more). Service was excellent, bar manager/staff were really helpful and friendly throughout. They helped to maintain a good atmosphere by adjusting lights and music volume as the evening went on. They really helped to make the evening go well. Good range of beers on tap and in bottles. Good range of spirits. Overall a really enjoyable evening.
Freddie Pragnell
Booked Marthas Bar at The Washington
Great price for a private underground area. Staff were excellent and the area in which the pub is found was picturesque and convenient.
Dominique Kuzniarek
Booked First Floor Bar at The Walmer Castle
I booked the upstairs of the Walmer Castle pub and I am more than pleased I did so. Staff was very very friendly and helpful. They were very Efficient. I helped cleared some tables at some point as they were a bit overwelmed but it does not matter. In the end, they said that we were awesome and that they had a great time. Brilliant!
Sophie Ward
Booked The Apartment at Portobello Star
Fantastic venue- Max the barman was brilliant, great guy and kept the drinks going all night. Location is brilliant, and we were allowed to order in our own food. We plugged in our own music near the end, but the bar's own music was great too for background vibes. The room was the perfect size for about 35 people, and didn't get too hot (it has air con!). It's great as to use as your own space, just as they say, a bit like your own house party. Would definitely recommend!
Booked Back Area at Nordic Bar
I booked a private room for my boyfriend's 30th birthday on a Saturday night. Kerry and the rest of the staff were very accommodating and made sure we had the best time ever! They also decorated the room for us which looked great and were always on hand when we needed anything. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a good night!
