Over the past year, the charming establishment has hosted many pre- and post-wedding receptions, offering flexible wedding packages that can be tailored to accommodate a wide range of preferences and requirements. Whether it’s a cosy private room for intimate gatherings or full venue takeovers, the property provides a quintessentially British experience right in the heart of central London. Just a stone’s throw away from the Chelsea Town Hall, The Cadogan Arms is the ideal wedding venue for couples getting married through the Chelsea Registry Office. For those looking to hold their wedding within the pub, a registrar can easily be booked and arranged, ensuring weddings are planned as smoothly as possible. The Rose Room can be hired exclusively for up to 50 guests (standing) or 35 guests (seated), with a combination of separate tables and bar seats available and table service throughout. The bar area is available for group bookings, with cocktail and canapé receptions available seven days a week from 12pm onwards and flexible packages for smaller groups of between 10 and 17 guests are also available. The Dining Room can be reserved for semi-private or private use and can accommodate up to 40 seated and 70 standing guests. For larger wedding parties, The Cadogan Arms is also available for exclusive hire for up to 150 loved ones across the entire venue. The property offers a ‘best of British’ menu and a carefully curated wine list featuring much-loved classics, an extensive reserve selection, and an innovative tapped wine installation alongside a comprehensive selection of exciting beers and classically inspired cocktails. If couples feel something is missing, the team can work with them directly to create bespoke packages. Following the ambitious renovation that pays homage to two centuries spent serving the local community, the restoration of The Cadogan Arms recreated the lost early Georgian architectural details and ornate timber panelling of the original building, which are softened with warm velvets and floral-patterned fabrics — making for a stunning big-day backdrop. 23 QUIRKY VENUES
