Vicars Room & West Room
With the building steeped in so much history, every corner of the restaurant holds its own quirks and has lovingly been restored to retain the original features of the 15th-century building with exposed beams and wood-panelled walls.
What is the maximum capacity?
We can comfortably seat a maximum of 18/20 guests in our private dining room. There is no minimum guests required, although we do recommend no fewer than 8 due to the size of the room.
For the private hire of our West Room, we can accommodate 48 guests over this area. This would be classed as an exclusive hire of the restaurant for the service.
What is the room hire charge?
There is no room hire charge for our private dining room or exclusive use, simply a requested minimum spend.
Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday £1,000
Friday & Saturday £1,500
The minimum spend is to include the total of food and beverage costs excluding service charge. A discretionary service charge of 12.5% is added to the bill.
If you would like more information on our exclusive hire costs, please contact our reservations department.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes, a £300 deposit is required to secure your booking for the private dining room and £1,000 for an exclusive hire.
What menu do you offer?
We believe that each event is unique and therefore do not have set occasion menus. We let our guests browse our current A la Carte menu and we are on hand to construct a 3, 4 or 5 course set menu bespoke to you.
We serve a seasonally changing range of classic dishes – such as Pea and Ham Soup, Oxtail and Kidney Pudding, Bakewell Tart and of course our signature Scotch Egg. Please speak to one of our team members about our current menus.
Is there an area for welcome drinks?
The Royal Lounge is adorned with fantastical, mythical creatures and beautiful features, providing the perfect setting for your guests to arrive for welcome drinks.
Can I decorate?
Of course! You are more than welcome to bring flowers and balloons but ask that no confetti is used on our tables as this can mark them.
Can I bring a cake?
Yes. We do not charge a ‘cake fee’ and are more than happy to provide cutlery and crockery for you to enjoy your cake. We do not allow any firework candles or fountain candles in the building.
Do you allow dogs?
Even though we love our furry friends – We do not allow dogs at the Hind’s Head.
