Mini burgers
Well stocked bar


Birthday, anniversary, engagement, hen party, baby shower, Christmas! Whatever the celebration we can provide the venue for you to party in style.

If you’re planning a celebration in central Brighton then we’re the perfect venue for your party or event. Based in the Lanes just a pebble’s throw from the seafront and with great transport links and parking nearby our venue hire gives you a private bar and flexible space across one whole floor for your event up until 1am. This comes with no hire fee, just a minimum spend requirement.

We have capacity for 65 guests, or 45 if you’re planning a sit down meal. Spread across three rooms for your exclusive use there’s a private bar, sound system and the option to order food and drink in advance that can be tailored to meet your specific requirements. We provide a great alternative to other party venue hire options such as hotel or restaurant banquet rooms and a bespoke service that is hard to beat in other pub function rooms or halls.

The Greene Room is an exclusive venue located on its own floor above The Cricketers pub on Black Lion Street. Overlooking the Lanes it’s part of Brighton history with literary connections through Grahame Green, the author of Brighton Rock, and rumoured to have once been the home of Jack the Ripper.A Large bay windows flood two of the rooms with natural light and provide a twinkling view of the Lanes at night. Thanks to its history as one of Brighton’s oldest venues with the building dating back to 1547, its quirky layout and its almost secret access via a little wooden staircase it’s full of character and charm.


Our party package can be unique to you:

  • We understand how important food is at a party! It can wow your guests, line those stomachs and give a focal point during the party. We have a choice of set menus for you to choose from that don’t include a soggy sausage roll in sight. Charcuterie boards, artisan breads, a wide selection of cheeses and other delicious small bites are our specialities. Check out our menus on our food and drink page or talk to us about your particular requirements.

  • Our well stocked bar is the first point of call for your guests and a great place to socialise. We specialise in wines, champagne and sparkling wine but also have a wide selection of spirits and draught beers and ciders. For any specific drink requirements just talk to us and we can see how we can help.

  • Our rooms are elegant and stylishly designed but can be given your personal touch if you wish, we just ask that what put up can be taken down at the end of the night and restore the next morning.

  • Whether you need space for a DJ and dancefloor or are sorting your own playlists and want to play them through our sound system, we can help. Music helps create the atmosphere you want for your guests and we make it easy for you to just supply us with your playlists and we will pre-load them on to our system. Alternatively hire your own DJ and let them take care of it all!
