Looking to host a function at Mrs Brown's? Here are some popular FAQs for your info.


How many people can I book for?

We have areas that can fit up to 50-60pax stand-up, and up to 45pax for sit-down lunches/dinners. Our Function Info Pack has photos of the available areas and their capacity. 


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 menu on the day/night. Whatever works best for you!


Do you have drinks packages?

    We don't... 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 credit card pre-authorisation of $10pp to secure the area. Nothing will be debited from your card when making the booking; however if you cancel within 24 hours of your booking or don't show up a cancellation fee of $10pp will be charged. The number of guests for the reservation will need to be confirmed a minimum of one week prior to the booking. (nb. small deposits are required to confirm large group bookings during the festive season... please refer to the Christmas Functions page for more info).
