Function hire is available for up to 150 guests, making this one of Brighton & Hove’s largest venues with indoor & outdoor space for your party. Our huge beer garden comes complete with the biggest bbq on the south coast & private heated booths for those colder months.

Inside, you will find open fires, cosy seating areas that will feel like a home from home, and plenty of space for live music or a DJ & dancefloor, so you can dance the night away like nobodies watching!


Delicious cocktails, wine, champagne, premium spirits & shots, mocktails, draught lager, cider & ale are all available from the bar, as well as soft & hot drinks.

Welcome drinks can be provided upon request – why not make your guests feel like VIPs on the night with a glass of prosecco or cocktail upon their arrival!
