About this space

This magnificent room, steeped in history, was formerly the main courtroom of Westminster County Court where debtors and bankrupts were tried. The focal point of the room is the original judge’s bench and it was from here that convicted defendants were sent down to the detention cells that now serve as our wine cellars.

The Judge’s Court holds a civil wedding licence and can be laid out for almost any occasion from a sit-down wedding breakfast for up to 100 guests, in theatre style for up to 150, a canapé reception for 130 or for business meetings.

Overall this is an amazing place to host an event, and i can proudly say we will be returning for our annual meeting next year. The staff were very friendly - a little shy - but overall very friendly. The facilities were perfect for our kind of event. They catered for all types of allergens such as Gluten free foods, and was always in eyesight if we needed any help

Although the food was great, it was not really labeled very clearly, members of staff were confused as to what foods were in front of them. Also, the gluten free food would've been better if it was placed on a seperate table so that non-gluten free people knew, again as it wasnt labelled very clear.

Jade is excellent, very informative with her venue which in itself is a fascinating building. Fingers crossed we can have our event there!


Covent Garden’s Best Kept Secret

Hidden away within Browns Covent Garden is Browns Court Rooms. This historic two floor event suite can be found on the first floor with grand sweeping staircases & stunning original features. Our building was once The Westminster’s County Courts, now elegantly converted into a bar and restaurant in 1996, we have a fantastic suite of rooms available for private & corporate hire. Within our largest room The Judges Court the original judge’s bench is still in place.
