We couldn’t be a seriously social pub if we didn’t love hosting functions! We’ve got multiple spaces available to cater for birthdays, engagement parties, business meetings, day long training events, intimate cabaret shows and baby showers.
All of our rooms are completely customisable and come with either built in AV or access to a portable projector and screen. There’s no hidden costs, we like to keep things as simple as possible so that you can just enjoy your event. We pride ourselves on making the event work for you.

The Secret Garden
Our secret garden is the perfect spot for a summertime birthday party. Perfectly suited to cocktail events for anywhere up to 50 people (in current restrictions), the garden will impress your guests with over 1500 succulents and other plants creating an oasis of calm. Licensed until 9pm.
The Adelaide Room
The newest room in the whole pub, our stately Adelaide room offers a variety of experiences for up to 37 people (in current restrictions). Whether you’re hosting a business meeting or a baby shower – the Adelaide room can be configured to suit your needs.
The room comes with built in AV (projector, screen and roof mounted speakers) and easy access to our main bar next door.
Perfect for informal cocktails, The Brunswick Bar is a cosy option for team drinks or farewell wines. With the fire roaring in winter and the lights down low it’s one of our absolute favourite spots in the whole pub.
The Dukes Bar
Our main dining room on a standard night, the Dukes bar is by far the most popular space in the building thanks to its old world charm, fully stocked bar and private sound system. Suitable for informal birthdays or up scale engagement parties, the room can be set up for sit down dinners or loungey cocktail suarees.
While it doesn’t have its own built in projector and screen, we are able to set up our portable system in the back half of the room. Also the only room in the pub with a TV for any die hard sports fans wanting to watch the game on their special day.
The MacGowan Room
Located upstairs, the MacGowan room is ideal for private lunches or small business meetings of up to 12 people (in current restrictions). We’ve also hosted many a hens night with the fairy lights and cosy atmosphere suiting them perfectly.
The Coleridge Room
Polished floorboards, exposed brick walls and Art Deco pictures greet you as you walk into the newly renovated Coleridge room. Ideal for birthdays of up to 27 people (in current restrictions), baby showers, family dinners and networking events. As inviting as it is practical, the Coleridge room comes with its own private bar for your guests (equipped with tap beer) and roof mounted projector and screen.
Dearg is Gaelic for Red so you can guess what the colour scheme for this space is. Tucked in between the Coleridge room and the MacGowan room, the red room is a good fit for anyone wanting a secluded spot for a private meeting or an intimate lunch or dinner.
Let’s face it, we have plenty of different spaces to choose from. The main thing is to pick one that suits the size and specific requirements of your event. From there, we will work with you to set it up to be the best event it can be – hey, it’s what we do, and we do it well.
