UPSTAIRS SPACE PRIVATE BOOKING
Our unique upstairs The Smoking Duck is a space is available to privately hire for any event. The entire floor is available, with the added bonus of a stage, and 3 TVs including an 80-inch screen.
The Smoking Duck is the perfect space for those smaller more intimate gatherings where a full restaurant or hall is just too large. Holding up to 40 sit down (or standing), this cozy, stylish room is ideal for celebrating those special occasions with your closest friends, colleagues, & family.
To hire the space there is no room hire fee but we do require a minimum spend of £400-600 (depending on the time, day, and date of your event) split across food and drink by you and your guests. If you do not meet the minimum spend we do charge a venue hire fee to make up the difference. But given the fact that even for a party of only 15 the minimum spend equates to £27-40 a head, we find most people can easily afford the space.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Private Hire includes exclusive use of the space, bespoke menu creation service with our chefs, & staff for your event.
You can choose from a range of food options, including buffets, sit down meals, as well as tapas or canape standing dining. You will sit down with our team who will work with you to design something to meet your vision and your budget.
Every detail of the event designed with you in mind. We will help you create your perfect night, from a party with a DJ or just custom music, to a themed night with a themed menu.
DOWNSTAIRS SPACE OR FULL RESTAURANT PRIVATE BOOKING
We also hire the whole restaurant or downstairs floor for exclusive use, but will require a minimum spend which we can discuss with you (as the spend and availability is dependent on the date of the event).
LARGE GROUP BOOKINGS WITHOUT PRIVATE USE
You can hire part of the downstairs or upstairs floors for up to a group of 12 sitting together. For such large groups we do require a deposit and require pre-booking of menu items.
GROUP SERVICE CHARGES
When it comes to large groups above 6 and you want separate guest tabs, we require a 5% service charge on all tabs. This is a way to cover the extra staffing and time required to keep tabs accurate, organised, and paid for.
