ABOUT The British Hotel
Great Event Venues

The British Hotel specialises in styles of group functions, from large a-la-carte bookings in the dining room, to smaller get togethers in the courtyard where everyone can pay for their own, to private/semi private rooms for cocktail parties and formal sit down dinners.


Finniss and McKinnon Rooms

These private function rooms are located on the first floor and are ideal for meetings and special celebrations. The Finniss Room can cater a set menu function for 70 people, a cocktail party for up to 120 people or boardroom table for up to 28 people.

Across the hallway is the smaller McKinnon Room which is ideal for a cocktail party for 25 people, and with its own bar, it’s ideal for pre-dinner drinks, or a break out coffee/tea room when combined with the Finniss Room. This area is completely private with an inbuilt sound system for either an ipod/mp3 player or CDs and also comes with a built in microphone, and a projector or plasma screens can be organised if required.

The Lounge

The British Lounge is located on the ground floor and offers a semi-private area with soft furnishings, plasma screens and an open fire during winter. The room is ideal for small, intimate functions for groups that would prefer to be a little closer to the action. The lounge can cater for up to 28 guests for a sit down meal (with the option of a set menu or a-la-carte) or a cocktail party up to 40 people.

The Atrium

The Atrium overlooks the courtyard and can cater for 15 guests for a sit down meal (with the option of a set menu or a-la-carte) or casual gatherings for up to 20 people.


Situated at the rear of the hotel is the spacious, open air courtyard. With a capacity of 100 people for a sit down meal or up to 175 for a cocktail style event, it is a popular venue for large groups and can be booked for exclusive use. The main area is enclosed with heating and fans but also includes a small open air beer garden.


Options are aplenty at the British, so no matter how big or small your next function, they’re sure to have a space to accommodate you!
