From wedding dinners and birthday parties to staff events and corporate functions The Nag’s Head on the Thames is able to accommodate your function needs.
Sit down meals
Group bookings for either lunch or dinner are able to be easily accommodated in our large restaurant. Guests will have access to our full A la Carte menu as well as the complete beer, wine and drinks lists offered by our main bar, with table service throughout the meal. For bookings of over 10 people we require a £5 deposit per head to reserve the table. As each meal is made fresh to order we encourage pre-ordering of starters and mains for large parties, to allow us to be able to serve your meals promptly.
For guests seeking a less formal option, a buffet is a great choice for a party or event. Organisers are able to choose a selection of delicious savoury and sweet options, which are presented for buffet style dining. Champagne and wines may be ordered in advance by the bottle or we are able to set up a tab for the party to allow guests to order from the beer, wine and drinks lists at the Bar. Buffets are generally held in the Bar Lounge but can also be held in the Restaurant or Beer Garden (weather dependent). Buffets require a minimum of 15 people with prices starting from £14.95 per head drinks excluded, with a £100 deposit taken upon booking and full payment taken one week before the event.
Guests are able to reserve areas in the Bar Lounge for casual drinks gatherings, with guests then able to access the full beer, wine and drinks lists at the Main Bar, as well as main menu (during service hours). Champagne and wines are able to be ordered in advance by the bottle or we are also able to set up a tab for the party if desired. To reserve an area in the Bar Lounge we require a minimum 10 people and a £50 deposit to reserve the space.
Reservation of an area in the Beer Garden is able to be requested when booking drinks or buffet functions, but the opening of these areas is weather dependent and therefore, although we’ll do our best, these requests cannot be guaranteed. In the event of poor weather parties will be moved to the Bar Lounge or indoor Restaurant area at the discretion of Management. Due to logistics the restaurant A la Carte menu is not currently able to be served in the Beer Garden. The opening of the outdoor wood-fire pizza kitchen and BBQ hut is also weather dependent therefore we are unable to take any pre-orders for food from the Garden Menu.
Entire restaurant booking
The indoor section of the restaurant is able to be entirely reserved for one party for lunch or dinner, Monday through Thursday, or lunch-time Friday. Bookings of the whole restaurant for lunch may be for either a buffet or sit down A la Carte meal. Bookings of the whole restaurant for dinner are for sit down A la Carte functions only. These bookings require a minimum of 50 people, pre-ordering of any sit down meals and a £5 deposit per head to reserve the space. To book out the entire restaurant there is also an exclusive access fee, price dependent on time and day of the booking.
Decorations and Cakes
Guests are welcome to bring in decorations, such as balloons and flowers, but unfortunately we are unable to attach any decorations or banners to walls or ceilings. Guests in the restaurant are also welcome to bring in birthday cakes, just speak to wait staff at the time and they will be able to arrange to store and present the cake at the end of your meal. We are also happy to arrange any candles you bring in on our fabulous homemade desserts to help with celebrations, just pass the candles onto the wait staff and make sure they know who the recipient is before they place their dessert order!
