Converted Brewery, reimagined into a fantastic function venue with the latest technology and sound system to be able to deliver business conferences of all sizes. I can imagine as well that it would make a great party venue. Central location, 15 mins walk from Liverpool Street Station. Charming facade, staff took very good care of the us 900+ people. And...

Good location, 10 minute walk from London Liverpool Street Station. The venue is full of character and well laid out. The festival itself was poorly organised from the start. Very little information supplied before the event. Not enough bar staff meaning a wait of up to 30 minutes to get a Gin you want. Some of the Gin had run... More

Even though this was an event I am writing a review about the venue. The location is good close to Moorgate and Barbican tube stations. The main hall was large and airy. Plenty of staff, but..... We were there to spend five hours slowly supping G&T . Therefore you need lots of places to put your drink down and ideally... More

We had a lovely meal here, we both got the sandwiches and was perfect as a light tasty dinner- definitely the best pub in Ashtead for food

Attended an event here that is normally held at the Modern History Museum. Modern History Museum it is not, it didn't some close in terms of occasion or atmosphere. However the food was exceptional, not sure if caterers were inhouse or not but it was very good indeed especially considering there were several hundred people in attendance.

a decent NZ Pinot Gris and reasonable French red offset some pretty ropey food. There were a lot of people attending so tough for a kitchen. hey could do with a bar for post dinner networking but the main room is excellent

It has a great feeling about it and combines old history and historic elements... More

A gorgeous and quirky venue. I attended a corporate function that had an evening meal, entertainment and dancing. It was lovely although the bar was expensive.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
