Small Function Rooms Hire Guide

London is known around the world for having some amazing pubs, but what is a function room? A function room is a dedicated room in a pub, bar, or restaurant that can be hired for private parties. They often come equipped with their own private bar, which is not the same size as the main bar, but still has all of the necessities such as beers on tap, bottled beers, wines, liquors, and a bartender of course. On top of this, you can expect to have a dedicated waitstaff to help take care of all of the event needs which may include  set up, food service, and cleaning. However, always make sure that you confirm the service offered before you book as you may need to manage set up and clean up on you own. These rooms make throwing a party super easy and allow you to kick back and enjoy the party that you have been looking forward to.

Small function rooms are intimate, yet versatile spaces that are great for a wide array of parties and gatherings. Here are a few kinds of parties that are tailor-made for small function rooms:

Birthdays – If you don’t have anything too big in mind for your next birthday party, a small function room is the place for you. Enjoy all of the comfort and charm of your local with your close friends and family for a wonderful evening full of cold drinks and nice food. 

Big Game Parties – Everyone loves throwing a party for a big match, but no one likes cleaning up. Of course you could just go to the pub, but then you will spend more time in lines and waiting for your drinks than actually watching the game. This is where the small function room comes into play. Hire one of these spaces and take all of the hassle out of throwing the party and pay for full service to keep your glasses full.

Private Dinners – Function rooms can double as dining rooms, so you can enjoy one of your favourite restaurants or try a new one for a full service private dinner. You will have a wait staff dedicated to your party who will be there to pass out hors d'oeuvres, pour your wine, and make sure all of your guests are happy. These are great for birthday events, graduations, and rehearsal dinners.

Graduation Parties – Function rooms are perfect for celebrating an achievement such as graduating secondary school or university. It is always a busy time of year and family members and peers will have multiple parties to go to in one day, and a function room is casual enough that your guests can come and go. You can have small bites and beers on tap so guests can congratulate the graduate, mingle with the other guests, and head to the next party. 

Rehearsal Dinners – Wedding rehearsals are as important as they are exhausting. Having your rehearsal dinner in a function room is a great way to unwind and prepare for your big day. Small function rooms are intimate spaces so you can share a lovely toast and enjoy a beautiful meal in anticipation of walking down the aisle. Be sure to include some bubbly to start the meal off, and have some fine bottles of wine to accompany your evening.

Regardless of the party you are throwing, here are a few things to keep in mind when you are planning your party:

Budget – Small function rooms are affordable spaces, but budgeting is an important first step of party planning. Always be aware of the size of the space you are looking to book, how many people you are going to invite, and the kinds of refreshments you will serve. Once you figure these things out, create an itemised budget and stick to it.

Guestlist – The space in these venues are limited, so be sure not to go overboard with the guest count. Things you should keep in mind are including plus ones and keeping in mind that not everyone will be able to attend. The best way to keep track of this is to send out your invitations about a month or two in advance so you can get a full guest count and plan accordingly with the venue manager.

The Type of Event – Different parties have different requirements, of course. Talking with the venue manager is a must to make sure that the venue will be able to accommodate all of the needs of your party such as enough space, the type of food being served, and AV equipment if you event will call for it. Small function rooms are versatile spaces, but like with any venue, there is no one size fits all.

Start by considering hiring a venue in the City of London, Covent Garden or Farringdon or perhaps even south of the Thames in Waterloo or Battersea. All of these districts offer a long list of venues that are also highly accessible from any other part of London.

What are ways to hire a cheap function room in London?

Small function rooms are one of the more affordable venues available in London. The best ways to keep costs down are to limit the number of people you are inviting and hire the venue on a per person basis. If you are inviting more people or will have people coming and going throughout your party, a minimum spend option may be for you. Getting a premium bar package is often expensive as well, so limit your guests to an open beer and wine bar and give them the option to pay for a cocktail if they desire.
