Planning to hold a joint 50th in early January. Can anyone recommend a decent pub with function room or restaurant with private dining room which is an easy walk from Waterloo station and can accommodate 40-60 guests and provide canapés or buffet style food?

Hi David

It’s not in SE1, but I recently held my 50th birthday party at the Punch Tavern on Fleet Street. The food was fantastic (and so much of it!) and they couldn’t have been more helpful. We used their back room which had a door out into the alleyway behind for the smokers. I can’t remember the max occupancy, but it might be worth checking them out.

I once attended a birthday party at The George Inn off Borough High Street: it is possible to rent out the whole top floor, and it also has a bar up there.

The venue is good, but the party food on offer was very 'canteeny'. Worth considering if they will let you organize your own catering.

The Roebuck has a really nice function room with bar upstairs. It's SE1 but a fair walk from Waterloo

the Horse and stables on Westminster Bridge road has a function room or did a while ago that is close to Waterloo as well
