Nick Portman and his team at Baneswell Social Club have had great success since taking over this popular venue in the summer of 2013, especially with the hire of their function rooms.

People from far and wide have used Baneswell Social Club for many different events, ranging from birthday parties, christenings, anniversaries, charity events, wakes and wedding receptions.

“People love how versatile we can be for their event,” said landlord Nick.

“My team and I can cater for almost anything, and can supply catering and entertainment too if need be. If you’re planning an event and need a friendly and welcoming space to hold it, make sure you pay us a visit – we’ll always go that extra mile to make your event run smoothly and memorable.

“We can easily cater for all budgets, and just to give you an idea of price we can dress the room with table and chair covers with fish bowl centre pieces, an evening buffet with a glass of sparkling wine to toast the bride and groom, and a DJ to entertain your guests for just £650 for 60 people (each additional guest priced at £12 per person).

“All weddings are different, and no two are ever the same – just sit down with us and take us through your needs, and we’ll be able to offer you many options and affordable alternatives.

“If you want to organise the event yourself, that’s not a problem – you can use our venue as a blank canvas and decorate and cater as you wish. The basic room charge is £150 for the day.

“We’ve had many successful weddings and events over the past four years, most of whom have given great feedback on our Facebook page

Don’t just take Nick’s word for it; here are some of the testimonials from the very happy customers, who have left feedback on the Baneswell Social Club’s Facebook page:

I had my daughters 13 birthday party here last Friday (2/1/15). It was great to find a place that would hold a teenage party; she also wanted it to be UV. Which Nick and his Dj were able to sort. The kids (and barmaids) had a Fab time. Will be using this place again.

Thanks to Nic, barmaids, dj and the doormen for our engagement party – it took a lot of time, effort and money but was worth it. Started planning in January as Nic knew with all the messages he had off me lol, but I'm just an organised person.

Our party was a brilliant – we had a great turnout, with lots of food and sweet cart, chocolate fountain and cake. Thank you Nic will keep this club in mind for family parties.

It’s great to see people who are dedicated to keeping this popular venue open, and have planned lots of great entertainment for you to enjoy throughout the week and weekend.

There are two function rooms available for hire, with the larger ground floor function room able to seat up to 150 people and has its own stage area and bar, whereas the upstairs can accommodate 70 people comfortably as well as having its own bar too. 

The Baneswell Social Club is open to everyone and you don’t have to be a member enter the club or utilise their free function room. You can book your special event for any day of the week; all you need to do is pop in or give them a call to check for date availability.
