To secure a function room hire for your upcoming private event, simply contact us either via our contact form on our website, or by calling us on 020 8462 1266. Our friendly team will be happy to discuss your requirements and help you select the ideal option for your private function hire.

How long can we provisionally hold a date?

We know that planning a private function requires careful consideration and planning. We can therefore provisionally hold a private function room for you until another enquiry comes in for the same date and room hire. We will then give you priority to decide if you’d like to confirm the booking and secure your desired function room.

What deposit is required to confirm the booking?

We require a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the Hall Hire price at the time of booking, and the signed contract to be returned. This ensures your function room is reserved for your special event allowing us to secure your reservation.  The remaining Hall Hire balance is due six months before the date of your booking with the final outstanding balance being due 6 weeks before your event takes place.

What payment options are available?

We accept several payment options to make it convenient for you to pay for your private function room hire, including BACS transfer, card, or cheque.

Is the function room hire fee cheaper if we don’t book weekends?

Yes, the private function room hire fees are generally cheaper if you book on weekdays rather than weekends. This is because weekends are a popular time for private functions and weddings, and the demand for our rooms is typically higher so choosing a weekday will usually mean you can benefit from a lower tariff.

What is your cancellation policy?

We appreciate that sometimes life happens, and circumstances may arise that require you to cancel your private function. We require full payment six weeks before the event date which is non-refundable. However, we would be happy to work with you to find a suitable alternative date to reschedule your function, subject to availability.

How late can functions run until?

Typically, private functions like birthday parties and anniversaries wrap up by 11pm, however The Warren is open until midnight.

Are we able to get a late extension for our function?

The Warren does not issue late licences, and these need to be applied for from the local council, to allow your private function to continue beyond midnight. We are happy to discuss details with you, including the procedure and any extra costs. Kindly note that we require a minimum of six weeks’ notice for any license extension request, and approval is not guaranteed. Feel free to discuss this with our team for your specific needs, and they will be glad to assist in any way they can.

How long will I have in the venue before my event for decorating and preparing it for the function?

The amount of time allotted for arranging and decorating the private function room prior to your event may vary based on other scheduled events, however we always make certain that there is plenty of time available for you. When making the booking, please check with our team if you think your decorations may require extra time, to ensure this can be catered for.

When do decorations and personalisations need to be out of the venue by?

Generally we request that all items be cleared out of the private function room by 10 am the following day at the latest. However, the specific time may vary depending on other bookings. Our team will discuss any variations to this with you, if necessary. 

Is there a cloakroom that guests can use to leave coats and personal items?
