Check Availability & make an instant booking
Our lounge is available to book exclusively online. Bookings are instant and non-refundable. We reserve the right to decline any booking. Please ensure you read our Terms of Hire before booking a room. Rooms are provided on a self-service basis, which means you need to book enough time to set yourself up and pack away at the end. If your event is a private party after 5pm you will need to pay an additional £40 for our housekeeping service, this fee will be automatically invoiced, as there is no scope for clean up to happen the next day. For best results please ensure you select the right dates and times, and book on your computer or laptop.

You must include your set up and clean down times in your booked slot as you can not arrive earlier or overrun your booked period due to other bookings.

Ask a question
Use the form below to ask any questions or if you would like to request a viewing before making a booking


Can I contact you by phone?
Matthews Yard does not have a telephone number as we are a small team and all events are managed and booked online.

Will the person behind the bar be able to answer my questions?
No, they are trained to work in the cafe-bar. Any questions or queries related to your event should be asked and agreed in advance in writing by management to avoid any last-minute issues, miscommunication and to ensure we deliver and communicate with our team members any needs for your event.

Do you offer catering?
Yes, let us know what you have in mind by email and we can send over options. We can also run prepaid tabs and similar bespoke requests.

If you have any questions, requests for your event or would like a viewing please get in touch!
