About this space

Space for up to 80 seated or 100 people standing the private 1st floor room at The Elgin is beautiful space for corporate and private events alike. Previously we have hosted several wedding receptions, engagements and birthdays as well as AGMs, summer parties and 'Just because it’s Wednesday' parties.

The room has its own bar and a dedicated team to look after you on your night. It’s a beautiful exposed red brick room with a wooden floor and triple aspect arched windows. You can add to the décor with your own personal touch if wanted and there are facilities to hire in a DJ for your night too.

The room can also be hired during the day time for filming/photography (it’s all about Location, Location, Location) or as meeting space.

Caroline was very helpful when we were planning our wedding reception. The room was beautiful and the food was a real high point - we had so many compliments!

An issue with the AV - the mic was quite quiet and the projector was not working at the time. There are steep steps up to the room which might not be suitable for everyone.

Lovely and cosy venue with great service, tasty food and convenient location.

Maybe more details on what was consumed vs what was bought/planned.
