    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!

    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 🤣 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.
