Room hire

Pembroke House has been a feature of Walworth since 1885 and is an excellent base for community activities. A number of organisations hire our halls each week, and whenever possible we look for ways of being more than simply landlords. If appropriate, we’re keen to use our local knowledge and our resources to offer something extra. We like looking for opportunities for collaboration and cross-fertilization between projects.

You will find details of our available spaces below. To make a booking enquiry, please fill out the form below.

Please note, as we are located in a residential neighbourhood, we require all building users to switch off amplified music by 21:00 and vacate the building by 22:00.

We can offer a discount to residents of the local estates surrounding Pembroke House (see ‘Estate rate’ in the tables below). If you believe this could apply to you, please let us know when filling in the enquiry form.

Unfortunately, we are unable to hire the facilities out for parties and other private functions.

Walworth Living Room

The Walworth Living Room is our second venue available for room hire. It has a main hall, small hall and kitchen. Please download our Walworth Living Room Hire Pack for details:
