Awards and dinners venue in London

Awards ceremony at The Brewery

From global awards to education awards, we have seen award ceremonies and dinners on small and large scales come together to give guests a night to remember.

The Brewery truly comes to life at special events. On big nights there’s a certain grandeur to stepping across the private courtyard to the octagonal reception and through into the Grade II listed rooms. The arrival through the courtyard is breath-taking.

Event food and drink

We take our food very seriously. Menus and wine lists change seasonally, and all clients are invited to a tasting in the chef’s kitchen before choosing the menu, with executive chef Tom Gore. Tasting also includes wine, and we’ll help you identify the perfect pairings with your chosen menu. It is also possible for individual table hosts to order drinks online before the event.

    • Event room Capacity
    • King George III
    • Sugar Rooms
    • Queen Charlotte
  • Total Available Capacity

Our venue allows us to be incredibly flexible. View all our rooms here.

It’s important to have different spaces for your guests to mingle and be comfortable in at an awards or dinner venue. A 300-capacity room like King George III offers you the flexibility for seated and standing areas and if combined with Queen Charlotte or Sugar Rooms can increase your capacity and offer a separate space for your guests. The Brewery has some of the most amazing spaces for awards venues London has to offer.  Contact us to find out more.
