Private Hire

Painters Cafe is available for Private Hire with a flexible layout and is the perfect setting for any special occasions such as birthday parties, anniversaries, baby and bridal showers and wakes.

We are fully licensed and can accommodate up to 25 people inside & 17 outside in our lovely courtyard garden which is fantastic for alfresco celebrations. 

Afternoon Tea and other custom menus are available. We can accommodate vegan & gluten-free dietary requirements, let us know specific guest requirements when booking.

For our private hire we have no hire fee! We do require a minimum spend at the event (depending on the date, time, number of guests and your catering requirements) and there is a 50% deposit required to secure the booking.

Private Hire is available after our daily trade time for 2.5 hours for each occasion as per the times available as follows;

Sunday & Monday: 1pm to 4pm. Please Note that we are NOT normally open on these days, however we will be willing to open specially for your event with a minimum spend of £180.00

Tuesday to Friday: from 3pm onwards

Smaller groups are welcome, please get in touch to explore your options. We do have space in the cafe during our trading times for smaller groups at no additional cost depending on availability.

Our layout is flexible, and you are more than welcome to come and decorate the café to match your event. We will provide the vintage china to make it all look glorious, fresh table flowers and pretty napkins.

All you have to do is bring your friends, and we will make your event look & taste amazing!

We recommend using Cevent Balloons and Event Hire for fantastic decorations for your event and The Sudbury Florist for gorgeous flower bouquets and arrangements.
