Drinks on arrival


If you’re getting married in central Brighton, we’re just a stone’s throw from Brighton town hall or a short walk from the seafront bandstand and a perfect venue for your elegant and intimate wedding reception. From the town hall take a short stroll and you’ll arrive at your bespoke reception venue, exclusively available for you and your guests to celebrate your big day in memorable style.

We can seat up to 45 people for a sit down meal or 65 for a more informal or cocktail and canapes style event. With three rooms for your exclusive use, a private bar, sound system and food & drink to your specific requirements we provide a more flexible and personal alternative to hotel or restaurant banquet rooms.

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 steeped in Brighton history with connections with the novel Brighton Rock by Graham Greene, and with Jack the Ripper . Flooded with natural light in two of the main rooms, its full of character and charm thanks to its history as one of Brighton’s oldest venues, a pub has been on this site since 1547 – its bay windows, quirky layout and its access via a wooden staircase in the main bar of The Cricketers which opens up into a whole floor unseen by those downstairs.


Our wedding reception package can be personalised to you with a choice of:

  • Bubbles to beer! Whatever your preference, we can have drinks ready for your guests on arrival and throughout your reception. Our manned and well stocked bar should have everything you need for your special day.

  • We know food is one of the most important aspects for you and we’ll work with you to make it perfect. From canapes and gourmet small bites, charcuterie and cheese boards to a full sit down three-course meal, we can work to your preferences and budget.

  • Our rooms are stylishly designed, but if you’d like to give them the personal touch and reflect any colour schemes or to give a certain feel then you are welcome to dress the rooms with balloons, garlands, paper lanterns, table decorations and so on to suit we just ask that you only put up what you can take down and restore the next morning.

  • If music be the food of love, play on. And we agree! Music helps create the ambience you want your guests to enjoy and remember and we make it easy for you with your playlists pre-loaded on to our systems. Alternatively you’re welcome to hire your own DJ or bring your own equipment.
