How much does it cost to hire the club for a private function?

The cost for hiring our facilities including Clubroom, Bar and kitchen is £50.00 per hour. You will need to hire the room for 30 minutes before the event commences and one hour after the event in order to allow the staff to set the bar up and to clear away at the end. There is a discount available for members of the rowing club. On top of this hire fee, there is also a charge for the staff (as below) and a Caretaker fee of £45.00.

How many members of staff will I need for my event?

This depends on the number of people attending your event. We require one member of staff for each 30 guests.

I don't want to use the bar, do I still require staff?

Yes, we always have at least one member of staff present when private functions are taking place. This is to ensure that everything runs smoothly for you during your event.

I just want to book the Bar without the Clubroom, is that possible?

Yes, please contact the club for the reduced rates.

How much is the booking deposit?

We ask for a deposit of £200.00 to secure your booking. You will also need to sign our booking form.

Can you provide me with catering?

We can supply you with a list of caterers who have worked at Maidenhead Rowing Club a number of times before. However, we are unable to provide or arrange any catering on your behalf. Alternatively you are more than welcome to use your own caterer.

What kitchen facilities do you have at the club?

We are able to provide you with some fridge space (approx. ½ a large fridge) and you are welcome to use our cooker. Some caterers provide their own cookers and you are more than welcome to do so, please discuss this when making your booking. The kitchen is included in the cost of the hire.

Can I bring my own drinks?

You are more than welcome to bring your own Bubbles (ie. Champagne, Cava, Prosecco). We charge £6.00 per bottle for corkage and will provide you with the Champagne glasses. Our staff will serve the bubbles for you and wash the glasses afterwards. We kindly ask that all other drinks (including soft drinks) are purchased from our fully stocked and very reasonably priced bar.

Do I have to clean the venue after I've used it?

Please leave the kitchen as you found it. Our staff will remove any rubbish and put away tables and chairs in the Clubroom so you don't need to do this. We charge £45.00 for this service which also includes setting up tables and chairs and putting our tablecloths on the tables if required.

Can I have a live band or DJ?

Please check when you make your booking. Our licence permits one event per month with amplified music. As long as there are no other bookings that month then this won't be a problem. If we do already have a booking requiring amplified music, you can still play background music on an iPod and docking station or similar.

What is the maximum number of people?

Under the terms of our licence the maximum number of guests permitted is 100. The licence also requires all guests to vacate the premises by 23:30 at the latest (23:00 on Sunday nights) and all music to be turned off at 23:00.
