Browns Brasserie & Bar in Covent Garden is renowned for hosting special occasions, parties and corporate events of any type or size in the very heart of the West End, just a stone's throw from Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations.
Alongside several bookable spaces and semi-private areas within the bar and brasserie, we have The Courtrooms: a collection of private rooms and large function rooms accessed via sweeping staircases (or lift), steeped in history with original features, all reflective or our building's former life as Westminster County Court.
We specialise in group bookings and celebrations, and with menus ranging from five course feasts to buffets and canapés, coupled with our impressive selection of cocktails, wine and Champagne, you can be confident your guests will be well catered for.
Whatever the occasion - whether it’s a birthday celebration, networking event, wedding reception or business lunch, we're sure to have something to suit you.
Please give us a call, pop in or complete an enquiry form and a member of our dedicated team will be in touch to help you plan the perfect event.
This magnificent room, steeped in history, was formerly the main courtroom of Westminster County Court where debtors and bankrupts were tried. The focal point of the room is the original Judge’s bench and it was from here that convicted defendants were sent down to the detention cells that now serve as our wine cellars.
The Judge’s Court holds a civil wedding licence and the room can be laid out to suit almost any occasion, whether you're looking for a sit down wedding breakfast for up to 100 guests, a theatre-style seated event for up to 150 guests or a canapé reception for 130 guests.
The room also features a large screen and projector, along with plenty of natural daylight and is perfect for both corporate and social use.
