New Courtyard Conservatory

Opened in June 2013, our new Conservatory adds 135 m² of space and is available for receptions, private dining, birthdays, anniversaries or wedding parties.

We have converted an existing courtyard area, adjacent to our popular River Room Restaurant, into a multi-functional, bright and airy Conservatory, which can accommodate up to 90 people. When combined with the Little Barn, River Room Restaurant, Oxford Suite and Eights Bar, it can support larger events and occasions of up to 350 people for private events. New car parking spaces have also been added to support the new facilities.

The Oxford Suite

If you are looking for a large Oxford function venue, our magnificent, air-conditioned Oxford Suite can accommodate up to 200 people. It has its own bar and dance floor making it ideal for large functions, parties and events in Oxford.

The Little Barn

The Little Barn is perfect if you are looking for an Oxford venue with character, and can accommodate up to 100 people. Retaining many of its original features, including the stunning oak beams, it has been lovingly transformed into a luxury function room with its own bar. The adjoining courtyard is ideal for a barbeque or outdoor drinks reception when the weather is fine.

The Kennington Suite

Our first floor, self-contained, function suite, overlooks the picturesque lawns to the River Thames, and is a light and airy room, popular for social dining for up to 70 people and is perfect for formal corporate banquets.

The Gazebo and St. John’s College Barge

Floating on the river Thames, is the historic College Barge, built in 1891, available for hire for intimate private dining, afternoon teas or drinks receptions. The new Cedar roofed Gazebo, sat on the banks of the Thames, is a fantastic option for reception drinks, barbecues or social dining.


During the warmer months, we can hire a marquee overlooking the river, especially for your function or event. Suitable for up to 500 people, the marquee makes a fabulous venue for a grand event or function in Oxford.

With 84 luxurious en suite bedrooms to choose from, your guests needn't worry about driving home. If you fancy doing something different, take a look at our Speciality Events.
