Restaurant Venues Hire Guide

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.
