Group Bookings & Private Hire

We have a beautiful space in the downstairs floor of each of our locations where you can hold your perfect party. 

We have held micro weddings, networking events, big birthday celebrations, work Christmas parties, promotional events, trade tastings, staff training, customer schmoozing - you name it, we can make it happen!


group food and drink packages at friends of ham leeds


Enjoy a buffet of charcuterie and cheese along with our usual accompaniments, all tailored to your group size and budget. Larger standing groups will be provided a buffet. Smaller seated groups will receive their food family-style in the centre of the table.

Drinks can be purchased in advance; we can hold an open bar; or your guests can purchase drinks on the day. We really do create an entire bespoke event specific to your needs. 

For private hire of any space within either Friends of Ham location, we may require a minimum spend to be reached. All food and drink ordered by the event organisers in advance, plus any additional spend by any guest on the day of the event will work towards this minimum spend. 

Any minimum spend requirements will generally be focused more towards the back end of the week and weekends which are our busiest times. We need to recoup what we would take from our regular customers on any given day, so to guarantee you having the space to yourselves we do need a commitment of purchase. By working this way we do not charge any specific room hire fees.  

Ilkley Enquiries - we have incredibly small rooms and an exceptionally small kitchen within our Ilkley site and so we ask that all enquiries go through our Ilkley bookings page. Enter your booking request details (date, number of guests) and a manager will respond with options specific to your group.

Leeds Enquiries - we have a 40 seat/60 standing capacity room downstairs with a bar so we can be quite flexible with bookings. Take a look at our food & drink packages for groups then head to our Leeds bookings page to place your enquiry. One of our bookings managers will respond to you as soon as possible with availability and minimum spend requirements. 

Christmas at Leeds - our menu will be posted soon! However it is just the same as our standard group food & drink packages above - costing either £15 per head or £25 per head. Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean we need to change more.
