Charles Dickens was once a familiar visitor to this historic tavern, and the Nelson Room became famous for holding its renowned whitebait dinners.
In more recent times, the Tavern has become available for private hire, and has become one of the most attractive and most popular venues in the heart of the City of London to celebrate a wedding.
Our historic characteristics and charm both inside the building and out remains unchanged, with beautiful balconies and bay windows that overlook the Thames. The Nelson Room and the Hawke and Howe Bar have been recently re-furbished, and now ooze beautiful late regency magnificence.
The first floor of the Tavern can be hired out in its entirety exclusively for your wedding. The venue will be available for the entire day, so there will be plenty of time for your suppliers to set up and for you to take photos of the room should you want to.
The Nelson Room can accommodate up to 200 guests for a sit-down dinner, and 350 guests for a standing reception. This room is also licensed for civil weddings.
