Parties and Events

Parties and Event

It’s time to reconnect with friends, family, and colleagues.

Located in the heart of Oxford’s city centre, our atmospheric gastropub provides a wonderful ambience for family and friends looking to catch up on lost time and missed celebrations. Alternatively, we also cater to businesses looking for a unique and memorable space to present, network, and celebrate with clients and colleagues.

Accommodating 50 seated or 70 standing, The Malting Hall is our elegant, vibrant and spacious restaurant, situated on the first floor of our historic inn. Our beautifully crafted 6-light casement windows allow for a unique and picturesque view of St. Michael’s Tower as you dine on the freshest gastro food Oxford has to offer.

Celebrate With Family & Friends

Party at one of Oxford’s last remaining independent gastropubs, the ideal place to reunite with your friends and family.

We’ve all missed out on quality time with our loved ones recently. If you’ve had your event cancelled or guest list limited in the past, why not get all your favourite people together for a belated celebration?

Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary, hen/stag do, wedding reception, or just because you’ve missed each other, we’ll help you organise the perfect get-together.

Business & Networking Events

Bring the whole team together with freshly cooked, flavourful food made using locally sourced ingredients. 

Our unique menu, attentive staff, and charming event space provide the ultimate setting for a networking or team-building event, product launch, business anniversary, or retirement party. 

There’s never been a better time to raise a glass with the team.
