Parties, Celebrations, Functions, Receptions and other get-togethers

Hold your event at the Barge for free!

Be it a birthday party, wedding reception, aniversary, business meeting, wake or any other type of social event, why not hold it at the Barge? There is no hire charge, and we can supply a variety of catering and entertainment options, or you can supply your own.*

From a buffet to a barbeque, from a disco to a full live band, from a handful of friends to 100 guests, we are able accommodate most scenarios and suggest suitable options. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

We are unable to offer you exclusive use of the Barge for your event during our normal opening hours (see contact page for times) - we are, after all, a pub with a regular clientel. Outside of our normal opening times, the Barge is yours exclusively. We have hosted many different events at the Barge under this policy and it has always worked very well. Licencing laws apply to all events.

* If you are planning to book your own entertainment (eg. live band or disco), please let us know the details so we can be sure to make the appropriate facilities available. You will normally be responsible for meeting the cost of any entertainment not booked by the Barge. Please also note that if you want to hold your event on a night when we already have a band booked, it is unlikely that we will be able to cancel our booking in favour of yours. All amplified sound must go through our own in-house PA system. Please email for details.
