    Highly recommended!

    We held our wedding reception at The Depot on 29 February 2020, and we loved it. The design of the venue - with three open levels - is perfect for an intimate feel even with 140 people. Tables are split across two levels; the third has sofa seating for guests - or kids - to relax on, while remaining fully connected to the rest of the room. We really love the modern pub decor.

    The food is exceptional, and comes in very generous portions; the house wine is also excellent. There is also an excellent selection of craft beers. The serving staff were friendly and efficient right to the end of the evening.

    We were really grateful for the help of Emer, The Depot's events co-ordinator, throughout the process of arranging the wedding. She was great at keeping in touch and advising us at every point; her friendliness stopped it feeling an intimidating process and made it manageable. Her help on the night of the wedding was great.

    On the day itself the reception went seamlessly, which meant that we had nothing to worry about and could enjoy the celebrations. Emer and the team took care of everything, and were great at dealing with whatever circumstances threw at them - if there were any hiccups, they weren't noticeable.

    Every guest we spoke to loved the venue and wanted to know how we'd found it. They loved the layout, the decor, the atmosphere and the food, as did we - we'll definitely be back for a drink!

    It was everything we wanted, and would not hesitate to recommend The Depot to anyone looking for a wedding venue in London.

    Thanks Emer and co!

    Wedding Party 9th November 2019

    We had our wedding party at the Depot this weekend and we could not recommend it enough. The venue is a beautiful space that easily accommodated 145 of us. Emer and the team were incredibly organised and efficient, as well as flexible. Our guests commented on how friendly and helpful all the members of staff were on the day. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better venue for our party.

    What a day... and night!

    We cannot thank Emer, Jack and the rest of the guys at The Depot for making our wedding such a memorable, fun and stress-free occasion! We had our ceremony and reception there - from 2pm to 2am! - and everything went without a hitch, if you'll pardon the pun. Not only that, but the food - for both our wedding breakfast and evening munchies - was incredible! All our guests raved about the food and the venue! And Emer, The Depot's wedding fixer, was so helpful and calm, both on the day and during the planning process, that we knew our wedding was in safe hands.Cannot recommend The Depot highly enough! We're planning our first anniversary party there already... ;)

    Our wedding

    The Depot is an amazing venue. Emer and the rest of the staff are heaven sent. We literally sent over bits the day before and was blown away by how they transformed the venue. We even noticed little extras which made it look extra special. All the stress was taken away from me and my husband and from day one we felt safe in the hands of the Depot. All our guests loved the food and the Depot were happy to make last minute changes right up untill the day before the wedding. We has a relatively small wedding but the space of the venue and how it is laid out was perfect. The rustic look is amazing. More importantly the Depot is excellent value for money. Both my husband and I are very laid back and Emer was great in communicating with us and keeping us on track without making us feel under pressue. A great venue for a wedding and we will be back no doubt for Sunday lunch.

    Thank you so much for making our wedding unforgettable xoxo

    Unforgetable day at the Depot

    We had our wedding the Depot and it was a fantastic day. The preparation and the planning went very smoothly and everything was well organised. Thanks to Emer, the bar manager who was very professional and helped a lot this day to go really fantastic. Our family and friends absolutely loved the place and we all had an amazing time. Thanks to Emer and all the staff for great experience and service, we could not wish for a better time. John and Mariya

    14.09.19 Pan and Han Wedding

    We both live very close to The Depot and had visited it several times for lunches and drinks. The place has a very authentic rustic chique look which is soo effortless! It was such an obvious choice for us to select it for our wedding! Emer - the manager took soo much time and effort to meet up with us, answer all our questions at silly hours during the day and night! All our guests have been commenting on how amazing the venue looked! The food was superb - I am a greek and even I enjoyed the vegetarian option!! The Depot has soo much room however does not at any point feel empty as the lighting is very good throughout with 3 different level for people to dance/chance and chill simultaneously!

    We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our special day - thanks for everything down to the waiters who were so pleasant and helpful to all the guests!!

    Very Happy we chose the Depot

    Choosing the venue is a big decision and it does impact on so much down the line... but we are so happy we chose the Depot. Emer the event Co-ordinator was super helpful and made sure everything ran like clockwork, Lucy the head chef delivered really very good food exactly as per the tasting, The outdoor space and the mezzanine levels created different interesting spaces. We had a great day... our guests keep telling us they had a lot of fun. It was exactly as we wanted.... If we had to criticise... the toilets could do with refurbishing but otherwise 10/10!

    Wedding 7th September 2019

    I am not sure where I should begin - when we were hunting for a venue for our big day, the Depot was last on our list and we nearly didn't go - am I glad we did. The moment we both walked in, we knew it was the perfect venue. We were looking for something with a more rustic vibe but a little bit extra. And we found it. Emer is amazing and she took away all the worries a Bride has, I knew I was in capable hands and was hopefully not the Godzilla Bride but also due to the excellent selection of Draft Beers, the Groom actually was more involved in the face to face discussions.

    The Depot is one of those Venues where you don't need too much decorations as you want the Venue to shine and that was great. We could deliver our decorations the evening prior and when we walked in the next Evening we were stunned of the transformation. Lucy and her Team provided an outstanding Buffet and Midnight Snack, Emer, Naomi and Team smiled until the bitter end and it was just perfect. Our Family/Friends did not stop raving about The Depot although I knew that some were very sceptical when we advise the Party would be at a London Pub. We can only say Thank You for making our day perfect and special. Because that is how The Depot made us feel - special - and not just another wedding party. There were many personal touches etc. When we reflected on the day - we both agreed that we would not change a thing. Thank you Emer, Naomi and Lucy - you and the Team where outstanding !!! We will be back

    Wedding

    We had a fantastic experience. Emer was superb at organising the venue for us and made it look incredible. Lucy and her staff delivered fantastic food which was commented on by all guests. They made the day so easy for us and helped to deliver such a memorable day.
