The bar stocks an extensive range of well-priced draught beers, spirits, Champagne, Prosecco and Cava. We are able to organise drinks on arrival should you wish, table wines and buffet style catering. You are welcome to organise your own buffet style catering, we can provide recommendations if you need help. We are able to accommodate 280 people, with seating for approximately 80. There are various sizes of tables which you may re-arrange to suit your requirements. In terms of decorations, we are happy to allow flowers and balloons, please refer to the booking conditions for full information.

You may organise your own band or DJ providing they have their own equipment and liability insurance. Alternatively we can recommend Mike Sullivan Entertainments on 07958 244099.

There is a smoking area to the rear of the club.

Please be advised that during the football season we are unable to accept bookings for an afternoon reception on Saturdays, we have an obligation to the Portsmouth FC home supporters to have our bar open, and therefore we can offer evening facilities only on those days.

If you wish to book on a Friday or any other day of the week there are no restrictions, however we would need an idea of expected numbers and timings in order to provide a quotation. Please complete the booking form or call for more information.
