STUFF YOU ASK US
Can I book a table in the garden?
You certainly can but we only take bookings outside for 10 or more people. Anything under that is a first come first served basis
Can i book a table inside and outside?
Now that’s just being greedy! We book out very quickly so it’s not fair on everyone else if they have to wait for you to see what the weather is going to be like to decide to be inside or out so once you book an area then that’s your spot. If the weather looks like turning we will do our very best to move your booking but it depends on all the other bookings. Last booking times are 20:00 on weekends.
Can children come? What about dogs?
Under 18′s are allowed until 7pm as long as they are supervised, if we find them running around by themselves then we have a stockpile of bunny rabbits that we will send them home with. Dogs are welcome as long as you like, just remember on a Friday and Saturday night its quite loud so probably not nice for your lovable pooch’s ear drums.
How about booking my child’s party there?
While under 18′s are allowed until 7pm, we are ultimately an adult environment so we do not take bookings for children’s parties.
What’s the difference between the food or drink booking option?
With a food booking we will make sure there are enough seats for the amount of people you have booked for. If you book as a drinks booking we will give you more of a base table where you can mill around, leave your stuff or chill at. There will be some seats there but not always enough for everyone to sit at once as we will assume a number of people will be standing chatting or over dancing with the DJ.
Can I decorate tables for a special occasion?
Why of course you can. You can even bring a cake and we’ll keep it fresh for you until the candles are lit.
Do you do a corkage deal or can we supply our own food?
Unfortunately not, given that our primary business is food, drink and fun its pretty important that we supply these.
Please however feel free to bring FUN as there is no corkage charge for bringing your “own fun”.
Can I specify a particular table or area?
Whilst we are unable to guarantee specific tables or areas in the pub we do take your preference into consideration and we always try our best to work to people’s requests wherever possible. Tables are allocated on a first come first served basis.
How does the deposit system work?
Before we confirm your booking on a it is likely that we will send you a secure email asking for you to fill out a card authorization equivalent to the amount of £50 as a holding deposit for your table. The Card authorisation does not debit immediately from your account. Its designed so that you can authorize us only to take the specified amount in the event of a no show on the evening of your booking or should you cancel without giving us 24 hours prior notice. There are no other circumstances that we will debit your card or take the authorized amount without prior consent.
Can I change my booking time or number of attendees even if I have paid a deposit?
You can indeed. Just get in touch with us and let us know. We may need to adjust the holding deposit but only if there is a significant increase in numbers.
What happens if we are running late for our booking?
We only hold tables for 15 minutes after the specified time for your booking however if you are running late then do please tell us on 0208 533 0040 and we will try our best to hold your table for longer wherever possible.
How big are the tables and areas I can book?
We accept bookings between 6-60 people however we can offer bespoke packages for larger parties.
Can I book an exclusive or private area?
We have a wonderful private hire room which you can book for your party. If you email us on firstname.lastname@example.org we can tell you more.
I’ve received a card authorisation email. How long do I have to decide?Unfortunately we fill our bookings on a first come first served basis. The sooner you return the details the sooner we can confirm your booking. Until such time your booking remains an enquiry and subject to first come first served terms on confirmation.
