Not only was the pub free to hire for a whole night with no minimum spend (unheard of in London) but they were so helpful and accommodating.
I had about 70 guests and they moved tables to make sure there was plenty of room for a dancefloor and they let me have my own ipod and provided disco lights. Mike, the guy who runs it, was so helpful and got me a good deal on a load of cava they got in specially for the night.
They also have a great little beer garden out the back where they laid on a superb barbecue with really good quality meat from smithfield market.
It's a fab atmosphere - it feels like a 'locals' pub but with a really warm welcoming attitude.
I had an epic 30th and would recommend it to anyone who wants a low-key, cheap but friendly and exclusive party venue! :-D
