Great communication in the lead up from Zac and brilliant service on the night!

The venue was great, and the staff generally friendly

At times, there was no one at the bar to take drinks and food orders. Since we had a minimum spend to meet, this grated somewhat as we literally couldn't order anything for multiple periods of around 10-20 minutes. The bar staff also threw a few people out for supposedly being 'too drunk', but the atmosphere was actually very civilized and no one behaved aggressively or rudely. The staff also refused to serve a few people, which we felt was heavy handed given the fact that no one was acting like an idiot.

Great venue, great a staff, easy to organise, food was delicious, would certainly recommend for others!

About Ask for Janice

Ask for Janice and you’ll find her in the heart of the city, located just 5 minutes walk from both Farringdon & Barbican tube stations.

One of London’s most laid back spaces, AFJ (as she’s known to her friends) is the perfect venue for corporate and private parties of 50 - 100 guests looking to have a great bar all to themselves.

The glass-fronted bar looks out over Smithfield market and inside, our range of over 40 gins & 60 craft beers means there’s plenty to choose from for any event.

The team at AFJ are great at what they do and love nothing more than a good knees up wether it’s for birthdays & engagements to the annual summer & Christmas party, product launches and just because we cans!
