Located in the heart of the vibrant City of London, The Brewery provides a unique venue for your wedding celebrations. The Brewery is full of character, perfect for a truly original and personalised occasion. With an excellent range of flexible spaces, delicious food and great service, The Brewery stands apart from other London venues.
The venue occupies the building of the former Whitbread brewery in East London. In 1750, Samuel Whitbread moved his operations to the Chiswell Street location, where the business quickly thrived. Business continued until 1976, and throughout its life, the brewery drew attention from the Royal family with visits from George III and Queen Elizabeth II, to name just two.
The site now offers a fantastic setting for your wedding. The venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in every room, allowing you to hold your whole day of celebrations in one stunning location. The Brewery can accommodate between 40 and 600 guests for your ceremony and reception, allowing you to have a small, intimate event or a lavish, grand occasion.
The impressive Porter Tun is ideal for big weddings. With an exposed King Post timber roof, antique wooden floor and charming raised balcony, the space exudes charm and character. Alternatively, the most intimate rooms at the venue, the Sugar Rooms, are incredibly special and have a rustic barn feel – a very hard trait to find in the city!
Food is an incredibly important part of your wedding day, so we are on hand to provide delicious, impressive dishes for you and your guests. Every dish is created by our Food Director, Tom Gore, with the utmost care to provide truly fantastic, quality food.

You were amazing with everything
We loved the venue so much
The staff are always friendly
We have had glowing feedback from our guests
We - and all our guests - had a fantastic day. We have had nothing but glowing feedback from our guests for the venue and all the staff on the day.
We'd like to call out three people in particular for praise.
Chris, the event manager, was absolutely outstanding; we both knew we were in completely safe hands with him, and his reactiveness and dealing with every query and request we had was amazing and remarkable.
Both him and Will were so clearly in control of the service for the food - again, all of our guests felt very well looked after, and everything appeared effortless to our guests; I know this requires a lot of effort on your team's part to make this happen, and we both have huge respect and thanks for that.
Eddie was also an absolute gentleman and a huge help to our photographer Kari, and to our guests - especially those with mobility needs. His fantastic manner and ease at dealing with everyone was a superb icebreaker for when our guests arrived, setting the tone for an amazing day.
And, as I've already alluded, all of the staff were incredibly friendly and professional - this speaks volumes to their quality, and the quality of the offering that The Brewery provides.
Please do pass on our thanks to everyone involved in making our special day so amazing.
