Private Functions

The Craft Embassy has a separate pavilion complex that can be made available for private functions of up to 90 people standing and sit down meals for up to 40 people.

The heated, glazed pavilion area is perfect for corporate functions, special birthdays, or other social club gatherings and includes an option for pre-booked hosted beer tastings. We offer a range of catering options from a selection of casual canapes through to more formal seated set menus.

Facilities in the pavilion include separate toilets and full audio visual options, including projector, microphone and input, enabling streaming of music from your device.

In certain circumstances we can offer a pop up bar serving up to four craft beers, a selection of wines from our menu and non-alcoholic beverages.

For exclusive use of the area the minimum spend varies depending on day of the week and time of the year.
