Christmas Functions

It's that time of the year again!!

Christmas parties are booking in quickly for November and December already (especially Fridays and Saturdays). If you're thinking of hosting your 2020 Christmas function at Mrs Brown's, here are some popular FAQs for your info.


How many people can I book for?

We are still unfortunately under the Qld Government's COVID capacity restrictions, with the maximum number of guests in the venue being 91pax. We are therefore limiting group bookings to around 30pax (but will be flexible where possible).

Is there a minimum spend?

Nope! We never do that :) 

Do I have to have a banquet menu?

No! You have a choice of menus for your function - you can either choose one of our canapé or feasting menus (refer our Function Info Pack to view the current ones); or you can order from the a la carte or feasting menu on the day/night. Whatever works best for you!

Do you have drinks packages?

    We don't... we did for a little while, but we find they are usually under-utilised and therefore not great value for our guests. We also personally hate going to functions and being forced to drink average beer and wine in venue-chosen beverage packages! So, you have a few choices:

    1. A bar tab: you can set this to a certain limit (with a cash bar to run once the limit is reached), or let it run for the duration of the event. You can also choose between having an “open bar”, or choose certain drinks to be available (i.e. tap beer, certain wines and certain champagne). We can help you choose drinks if you need suggestions!
    2. Pre-order any beers/wine/spirits from our menu: we can have these ready and waiting for your function, and once they are consumed we can switch to a cash bar (or you can start a bar tab).
    3. Cash bar: guests are welcome to purchase their own drinks.

    How long can I have a booking for?

      Group bookings generally run for 3 hours during the day, and up to 5 hours in the evening. We have some suggested times (especially for Fridays and Saturdays):

      • Lunch: 12pm - 3pm, or 12.30pm - 3.30pm
      • Drinks/nibbles: 3.30pm - 6pm, or 4pm - 7pm
      • Dinner: 7pm - close, or 7.30pm - close

      Do I have to pay a deposit?

      In order to confirm a reservation for a group over 12 people, we require a small deposit of $10pp to secure the area. This deposit is non-refundable (except if we have to cancel it because of new COVID restrictions... please no!!!) - however it will be put towards food and drinks for your event. The number of guests for the reservation will need to be confirmed a minimum of one week prior to the booking.

      How do I enquire about availability or get more info?

      Send us an email at, and we'll come back to you as soon as we can.
