Things to consider when hiring a restaurant venue:
Cuisine – traditional British pub grub, French haute cuisine or spicy Indian specialities? London’s restaurants have got it all.
Size – how many guests are you inviting to your event? When planning a huge celebration (such as a wedding), you may need to hire the entire restaurant. A lot of restaurants offer private dining rooms. These are perfect for smaller, more intimate events.
Terms and conditions – did you know that free restaurant hire is possible even in central London? Some restaurants work on minimum spend basis. That means you’re only required to spend a certain amount on food and drinks – no need to worry about paying a separate hire fee.
Alcohol license – check the details to see if the restaurant’s policy meets your expectations. Some restaurants allow you to bring your own alcohol.
Top tips for hiring a restaurant venue:
Allocate the bulk of your budget to venue hire, catering and beverages, and entertainment.
Book a venue with your guest list in mind. (Will you need a kid-friendly restaurant, elegant private dining room or a restaurant with a private function room for a work Christmas party?)
Consider whether to provide a dress code (like black tie, formal or fancy dress).
Check whether you can get a discount from your venue if you hold your private dining event during the week. Some restaurants advertise with special offers for off-peak times.
Plan early and with your purpose in mind.

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.
