Situated adjacent to the Royal Navy College on the banks of the River Thames, the Trafalgar Tavern is a beautiful grade II listed wedding venue in Greenwich, London. The pub has a rich history dating back to 1837, and when celebrating here, your love story can become a part of its enduring legacy.

Facilities and Capacity

Whilst retaining our historical heritage, the Trafalgar Tavern offers modern, bright spaces for private hire. Each of the venue's first-floor rooms boasts sweeping balconies with floor-to-ceiling windows, offering the most beautiful vista across the Thames and the perfect backdrop for special days. The first floor features The Nelson Room, the largest of our pub's event spaces and the most popular for milestone celebrations.

Here at the Trafalgar Tavern, we are fully licensed for civil ceremonies with up to 150 loved ones and can accommodate wedding breakfasts for 180 seated guests. For larger events of 350 people, couples are welcome to hire the first floor. This includes The Nelson, Dreadnaught and the Hawk & Howe. Alternatively, smaller occasions can be hosted in either of the two additional rooms that suit both seated and standing events alike.

The Hawke & Howe can accommodate up to 70 seated or 120 guests standing, whilst the Hardy Suite on the second floor can accommodate 60 seated or 80 guests for a standing event. The Nelson Room can also be used for heartfelt ceremonies.

Services Offered

Our team at the Trafalgar Tavern truly believes that no two weddings are the same. For simplified planning experiences, our team have curated a variety of sample menus and packages for special events. To appreciate the nuances of each couple's happily ever afters, each can be fully tailored to suit unique requirements and preferences. Venue hire also includes event essentials such as tables, chairs, crockery, and linens.

Amazing wedding with sunset over the river

We had our wedding at Trafalgar Tavern and it was a beautiful setting. We hired the entire first floor where we held our reception. The staff were fabulous. The food was delicious and our budget really stretched far with the drinks. It was beautiful seeing the sunset over the river and my guests loved the venue, they were amazed by the decor and the said the range of spirits behind the bar was astonishing - and even if the staff didn鈥檛 have a particular spirit behind them they would radio somebody in a different bar to bring it over !

A Perfect afternoon and evening

The Trafalgar Tavern looked after us from beginning to end. A beautiful setting by the Thames, the food was amazing too! I highly recommend booking the Trafalgar Tavern for your wedding breakfast/reception. Worth every penny!

Best venue with the kindest staff

We could have not picked a better location for our wedding. Not only because of the stunning location on the river thames and the breathtaking interiors but because of the professionalism and kindness of all the staff members. Ewelina and Yvonne patiently answered all our questions email after email. THANK YOU. On the wedding day, Yvonne and her team did an amazing job and i cannot thank them enough.
Our wedding was a success because of all of you. Thank you.
We will always have fond memories of the Trafalgar and it will always have a special place in our hearts.

Amazing Venue & Delicious Food

We had our wedding at Trafalgar Tavern and absolutely loved the venue. It is an incredibly beautiful venue with a wide variety of rooms. Our only issue was that there was a lot of change with the events team at Trafalgar Tavern, and when there was a change in personnel, our agreements with the venue were not properly communicated internally, leading to extensive back and forth which was not ideal.

However, on the day and in the run-up shortly before the wedding the team was fantastic. For example, service was running slightly late on the day, however the team was very flexible and so we were able to move around timings of the cake cutting and coffee service to make sure that our wedding ran smoothly. We would also much rather service ran slightly late than compromise the quality of the food and the chefs implemented my wife and I鈥檚 notes from our wedding tasting perfectly. All our guests really enjoyed the food and had a fantastic time!

A little classy gastro pub by the river with gorgeous views and elegant suites

We thought of a pub wedding on a budget, we got a classy, elegant wedding venue by the river with gorgeous views of the wharf, great staff, amazing wedding suite and excellent service. We could not have found a better venue to make our day our happiest day. Helaina was the best wedding planner and was on the ball throughout. Ours was a very last minute wedding plan and everything had to be put together in 2 weeks. Helaina went out of her way to make sure it turned out to be the best day of our lives. It came across as if we had spent months planning our wedding! It was perfect and the guests were thrilled to be there. Everyone was wowed by the food, the location, service, venue. If you want a london wedding for a small group on a budget but still want an elegant wedding, this is the place for you. The summer sunshine added to the gorgeous views. Ideal location by the river, with outside benches to hangout, smoke and have some cocktails, a nice little balcony in the wedding suite to relax in between courses and take a break from all the dancing!

Wedding at Trafalgar Tavern

Trafalgar Tavern are an amazing wedding venue. We had the most amazing day and the team helped us to achieve our dream day. Trafalgar Tavern gives the most attentive, professional but friendly service from working out logistics at the beginning to trouble shooting issues which occurred on the day. After looking around other wedding venues it was not only the beauty of the venue that stood out but how all the staff made us feel welcomed and have a genuine desire to work with us to make all our wedding plans come to fruition even to point of sourcing us a last minute wedding cake 馃ぃ Trafalgar Tavern go above and beyond and that is priceless! We would recommend this venue to anyone look to get married.

August 2019 wedding

We had our wedding in August 2019. The whole day went really well, the food and drink was brilliant, as was the service on the day. All our guest had a great time, loving the unique venue with its views over Thames! The balconies and beach area also provided great spots for photos. The only negative was the organisation and communication before the wedding. Communication was very poor and numerous mistakes were made during the build-up, which made us feel very uneasy and stressed that the day would not go according to plan and I had chase them up on a number of occasions. However, the day was delivered very well and the venue made for a beautiful place to have a wedding so I would recommend the venue.

So Happy !

The Tafalgar Tavern has given us memories that we will treasure forever. The whole experience was amazing. The venue itself is just beautiful, you couldn't want for more but aside from that, the team behind it is what makes it! They were amazing. So friendly and approachable. They allowed us the freedom to make the venue are our own. Communication was great, I never felt out of touch. The venue met our every need! The running of the day was smooth and the staff were just amazing !

Wonderful winter wedding

We were married at the Trafalgar Tav in December and it was everything we dreamed it would be. In the run up to the big day the staff were superb and very supportive, willing to meet whenever was convenient to us and brilliant attention to detail. This continued to be the case on the wedding day itself and our guests and ourselves had a great time as a result. Ceremony, drinks, dinner and 'evening do' were all managed brilliantly, and with a personal touch too. I thoroughly recommend the TT for anyone's 'big day'.

Lovely location but beware the large size

This venue has gorgeous views of the thames and excellent service, but beware of the large space - if you’re having an evening reception with extra guests coming to dance the night away, try and keep them in the main room - the two times I’ve been here for an evening reception, most of the guests gravitated to the bar and balconies and didn’t dance making it more of a night out at the pub rather than an evening dance which the bride clearly hoped it would be. Our wedding party - 140 guests by the evening - was in a space similar to the main room only and rocked all night as everyone was in the one room it never felt crowded, the dance floor was always busy and there was plenty of space for those who wanted to sit at the tables which had been used earlier for diner.
