Brooding and atmospheric, The Arch House on Bermondsey’s iconic beer mile provides the perfect backdrop to cosy festive celebrations that are sure to get the season off to a good start.
The space itself is found in old brick-line archways, with their cavernous curved ceilings and rustic walls. With plenty of seating for parties of any size, you’re able to choose between booking a table or two for your team or getting a large-scale gathering together to let you enjoy the festivities with your wider office or even a group of colleagues and clients from other firms. Simply chat to the helpful team to work out the perfect setup for you and they’ll happily advise on table layout, minimum spends and all the trimmings if you fancy throwing a few decorations around the place or roping in some entertainment.
If private hire is your priority, there’s a semi-exclusive mezzanine upstairs which can accommodate 28 guests, while the ground floor holds 70 people. Combining the two gives you ample space for nearly 100 colleagues and is a great way to ensure your Christmas feels extra special.
With the main draw here being the beer, you can expect twelve delicious deinks on tap that come straight from the brand’s own brewery. This unique offering ensures festive soirees are anything other than uptight and means there should be a strength and style for everyone. For those who aren’t completely sold on a crisp glass of the good stuff, there is also an extensive range of wines, ciders, and beers to keep the whole team happy.
While the venue itself doesn’t do food, it does recommend a few of its neighbouring street food vendors which can provide a casual, quirky alternative to the usual turkey and stuffing. From ordering in pizzas through to grabbing a steak sandwich from a stall nearby, the flexibility to source your own catering is a real bonus here.
