Private Hire Terms & Conditions


Darkhorse restaurant is available for exclusive hire for evening or daytime events for large parties. Please contact for minimum pricing for buy-out events.


The space is booked on a first-come, first-served basis and no booking is held or confirmed until a deposit is received, or without prior written agreement with us.

If the booking is cancelled for any reason, the deposit may be non-refundable. The outstanding balance is due on the day of the event.

For making a deposit payment, we accept direct bank transfer via BACS, Visa, Mastercard or Amex.

Please note for full buyouts we ask for a minimum spend, which is what we require you to spend on food and beverage to cover the cost of having the room to yourself.

If the total cost of food / beverage consumed does not meet the minimum, the remainder will be charged in the form of room hire.

All food and beverage orders are applied toward the minimum guarantee and must be consumed on premises. A 12.5% dicretionary service charge is applied in addition to the minimum spend. All menu prices include VAT at 20%.


Bottles of wine are charged on consumption. Once your event menu is finalized, we will be happy to send you a copy of our current wine list, from which you may make your own selections for the evening. We are happy to make recommendations based on your specific menu and price range.


If you have a special bottle of wine you would like to enjoy with your dinner at Darkhorse, we charge a £20 corkage fee per standard 750ml bottle.

We generally do not allow outside cakes and cupcakes due to food safety and traceability, but we will make exceptions on special occasions for a plating/cutting (or “cakeage”) fee.


12.5% discretionary service charge.


We accept Cash, BACS Transfer and Visa, Mastercard or Amex.
