The Doggett, first building on the right as you come over Blackfriars Bridge
- not the loveliest of structures, but the upper bar has a great terrace overlooking river. Not sure how much, but about five years ago a sister's birthday party involved a hefty deposit, which was refunded as long as that much was spent over the bar during the evening (I presume reduced as spending increased through the evening, I don't think they keep the lot if you only manage 95% of the amount) - slightly scary but quite achieveable with enough serious party-goers - 100 people, 4 drinks each - you could see it as a challenge event! Nice for a Summer evening . . .
The Stamford Arms on Stamford Street
has a nice upstairs bar which comfortably dealt with about 70 or so of us at a work's quiz night recently. I believe the fee depends on whether you use their catering (pretty standard for most places). No outside space though I don't think...
As above, the back garden of the Ship was always a nice spot for an evening session...
on Blackfriars Road
also has a good outside back garden, barbecue built in, enough space for a good number. Upstairs function room too.
I must have been out having fun round here more than I realised...too many Xmas and leaving do's
