If you’re looking for a private dining room in Greenwich, you’re in luck. The Trafalgar Tavern offers not one, but two private rooms for hire for anything from business meetings to birthday and retirement parties for both large and small groups.
Situated right on the Thames, this historic pub was once a favourite of some of London’s most well-known literary, artistic and political figures, including William Gladstone and Charles Dickens. And, while the interior has been afforded every modern comfort 21st-century guests could want, the building charmingly retains the splendour of its past with features such as bow windows, canopied balconies and a unique collection of paintings, prints and objets d’art.
The main restaurant on the ground floor is a cheerfully bustling space dedicated to Nelson’s victory at the Battle of the Nile in 1798, but upstairs houses two private rooms for exclusive hire. The Ante Room, which backs on to a private bar, features wooden floors as well as the tavern’s signature floor-to-ceiling Regency windows that overlook the river, and the unrivalled views of London beyond. This space can accommodate seated parties of up to 30 or up to 100 standing, making it perfect for small to medium-sized lunches, dinners and meetings, or large standing receptions.
If you need a larger space for a party, conference or other event, the Nelson Ballroom is a sound choice. With its huge windows overlooking the Thames, glittering chandeliers, and elaborate plasterwork, it’s an elegant and grand room that can be hired on its own, or together with the adjoining Ante Room, depending on the size of your event. Classic décor and contemporary style come together in this space to make it the ideal setting for a large-scale event for up to 350 standing or 220 seated guests.
The Trafalgar Tavern offers a range of drinking and dining packages, so whether you’re looking for a set menu for a seated meal or a canape selection for a standing reception, the staff will be only too happy to advise.
