The Sugar Rooms, where the brewing sugar was stored, have natural daylight through elegant feature Georgian windows that overlook the courtyard.

The Smeaton Vaults provide an interesting, private space for parties of around 100 guests. Copper pipes around the walls and the original iron walkway reveal their brewing past but in reality these rooms couldn’t be more modern. There is a built in DB audio PA system and a large projector area and screen. The room has AMBX intelligent LED lighting that can wash the room in colour, highlight the vaulted ceiling, or interact with sounds and images. Fixed hanging points can be added for additional lighting if needed and there is direct access to the loading bay, making set up and break down easy.
The Queen Charlotte has exposed brickwork and a barrel vaulted ceiling. It also offers a private bar that’s concealed by a mirrored window when not used. The Queen Charlotte room is entirely self-contained, so it can be used by itself for banquets, drinks receptions or private dining for up to two hundred guests. Utilise this space as a convenient breakout space for larger events hosted in the King George III. There is direct access to this room from the reception area. The space also has LED lighting in the ceiling that allows for colour washes, and there's a built-in DB audio PA system.
