With a full wedding licence, the Brewery can host ceremonies, services and receptions for between 40 and 1,000 guests and is well versed in hosting culturally diverse weddings from Asian, Jewish and Greek communities. Pairing beautiful 18th century architecture with cutting-edge technology, its Porter Tun is one of the largest unobstructed rooms in London, with capacity to hold up to 1,000 reception guests or 600 for dinner. Executive chef Tom Gore is dedicated to providing seasonal menus that stand out from the crowd and will sit down with every couple for private tasting meals.
For an autumnal or winter wedding, couples can choose from starters such as game rillettes with roasted salsify, apple crisp, seaweed, pickled berries and chicken skin crumbs; or mushroom, Guiness and brown bread soup with a mushroom and sesame tortilla. Mains could include sticky beef cheek with pink sirloin, a mustard dumpling, potato purée, heritage carrots, turnip, potato dust and spinach; or hake, bubble and squeak, tender stem broccoli, spinach, and cauliflower purée, with a rose beetroot and quinoa crumb. Finally desserts are a tempting selection of classics with a modern twist; a Dulce de leche chocolate fondant comes with vanilla ice cream, a pea shard and a pea and palm sugar purée; whilst an intriguing sounding passion fruit and charcoal pavlova comes topped with a black sesame ice cream, yuzu curd and pink coral. For those really looking to push the boat out with their wedding breakfast, a five or six course menu is also a possibility and professional wine pairing is an additional service the team offer to make it a meal to remember.
