Hi there
I have to find a venue for a buffet/sit down dinner for around 30 people with a bit of atmosphere- (some of the guests don't know each other) preferably in the SE1 area.
I have a strict budget for this but I want it to be good quality food with a couple of bottles of wine thrown in. I have said possibly a buffet as this will keep costs down.
Can anyone recommend anywhere?

We recently had a small work buffet-type thing at the Wine Wharf - we had the 12.50 per head buffet menu and the food was really good. Not sure whether that's the kind of atmosphere you're after (we had a part of the mezzanine floor, which has skylights so was quite bright till the sun went down) it seemed a v relaxed place, but that might have been due to the freely-flowing wine... The wine was quite expensive, that was the only bad point.

I'm not sure if I'm allowed back. Apparently (I can't remember) I was a bit tired and emotional last week in the Oak. Haven't been back since, out of embarassment.

...if you press it, they will come.

Try EV around the back of Southwark Tube - big restaurant, tasty food, good prices, friendly staff

There's a new Chinese buffet on Old Kent Road called Yummy Yummy (It's across from Tesco). Dinner costs only 6/person (excluding drinks/service), but there's a choice of over 40 dishes, apparently. I went with a few friends a few weeks ago and the food was delicious... considering the low, low cost! It's a pretty big venue so I think you can most definitely arrange for a party of 30.
