About The Brewery

52 Chiswell Street, London
East Central London, EC1Y 4SD

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 upmost care to provide truly fantastic, quality food.

For more information about holding your big day at The Brewery, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We have had glowing feedback from our guests
Venue Service

By Matt & Shelly, Bride & Groom, on 09 May 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Mar 2019

Thank you so much for all your help throughout the entire process and on the day itself! 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.

Sincere thanks to you and The Brewery for the Team effort that went into the event. The Brewery can be proud, every aspect has been commented on from the Doormen, to the food, to the venue, to the atmosphere and to the clockwork run of the day. I can’t put into words how fabulous it was and how happy we were with The Brewery. Warmest thanks to you Milena, your attention to detail, calmness, patience, professionalism and skills are invaluable. On top of that, what a super person you are - which is why we hugged you so much! Please pass this on to the whole team, Tom (brilliant brilliant kitchen input), your managers and everyone. Congratulations to you all too!
