Description

The Hat and Tun, Farringdon, is beautifully decorated with a theme that crosses the border of country club and manor house sitting room, with leather arm chairs, wood panelling, taxidermy and a welcoming fireplace. They offer a fine menu of traditional British pub grub and freshly baked pies for Lunch Monday- Friday, that is well worth trying, and every Monday they host an ever popular, pub quiz.

Located close to the Islington Town Hall, making it a great place for private hire in London when planning your big day celebrations. Alternatively, they also hire out the private dining room, with its beautiful classic decor and large mahogony table not only for special/private dinners, but also for work meetings over breakfast. Hat and Tun also offer a no hire fee for complete hire of the venue, which can hold up to 100 people. With this they also offer buffet/fork dining and DJ options, making this the ideal location for private hire.

I had an excellent 40th birthday party at the Hat & Tun recently. Ellie, Ollie, Vlad and the rest of the team were on hand to answer any queries I had and made sure the evening ran smoothly. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and I had a wonderful evening there. I have no hesitation in recommending this pub for a private party and will definitely return in the future!

First time at the Hat and Tun and my experience was great ...full of laughter and the service was great! Although this turned out to be a running joke throughout my visit I do think that semi skimmed milk should be served and the side plate of sausage roll and mustard was served on the smallest plate ever...the guy who served me was so lovely and totally jumped onboard the banter regarding this..I told him next time I expected a bigger plate and semi skimmed milk :) all in all a great experience! I will return soon... Visited The Hat and Tun on 2018-02-15

The staff at The Hat and Tun were very accommodating and polite. We had an extra person join us, and although the food was only available with a 14 day pre order, they were able to put together an extra meal for us! Which I am very appreciative of, given the busy Christmas period. They were also there to clean up our crackers and secret santa rubbish 🙈. Thank you very much team.

Well-organised and nicely set out. Feedback on the food was generally very positive, except the vegan main course and the fish main course (Hake) were apparently dry and bland. The wine was lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. Visited The Hat and Tun on 2017-12-12

Whilst the food was great, we were extremely disappointed to learn that we are sitting in two separate areas of the pub. We were made aware that we will be seated at two separate tables for our Xmas party, but we weren't made aware the tables will be so far from one another that we wouldn't be able to see each other. The service was meant to start at 6:15pm, however we did not get our starters until 7pm. The staff was lovely though. 1 star for food and 1 for staff. Visited The Hat and Tun on 2017-12-12

I love this pub. Really quite place to grab a drink after work, or on Tuesday nights go out with friends to enjoy a role of the dice - evens you pay full price, odds you pay half, double 6s you get your drinks for free.

We hired the whole venue to celebrate our wedding. The support before the event was very helpful as it was fairly last minute. The space itself was nice and the bar staff were friendly and a attentive. However, the food was not of very good quality, and we had to pester staff to bring out the food at the agreed time. Would recommend if just doing drinks, but stay away from overpriced food. Visited The Hat and Tun on 2017-01-21

I was there for a lunch with an old friend for food + drinks. The service was attentive while giving us time to catch up, the place by the fire was cozy, and the pies were very good.

Hi, we had a lovely team Xmas lunch at The Hat and Tun. Food was of a very high quality, as was the service, which had the right balance of efficiency and attentiveness and warmth. In fact Lupcho and his staff gave us a very warm welcome with winter warmer cocktails. This and the little place cards with our chosen menu on them made us feel extra special. As the team lunch coordinator you made my job v easy and I also got a lot of praise for choice of venue - so thank you!! Visited The Hat and Tun on 2016-12-13

Great pub, very festive and the snug area worked well. We enjoyed the pub quiz (despite not winning...!) I would not suggest more than 16 for the snug area however if people want to be seated. The food platters were a little underwhelming, especially since we ordered over £150 worth which was expected to serve 20 people (16 attended) - we were hoping for a little more food as this order was not satisfactory to feed the attendants. Aside from that, the staff were friendly and helpful and on the whole a success. Ellie was also particularly attentive and accommodating to needs in arranging the event.

We attended the Hat and Tun for Christmas Dinner. There was a group of 13 of us. Upon arrival, we were all bitterly disappointed that we had been placed on a table directly next to the bar, as there was no separate dining area. As a result, many members of our team were constantly knocked and bashed accidentally by local punters. Despite staff attempting to direct punters elsewhere, it did not solve the problem. It also meant that the pub was awfully loud, so none of us could really hear each other speak. The food, on the other hand, was fantastic. I would not recommend the Hat and Tun for a Christmas party.

The pub had to record of my reservation. I had to show them the confirmation emails on my phone. Seems it was reserved with the Head Office and not forwarded to the actual pub. As such they were not ready for a party of 30 people turning up and had not reserved the space. Because of the additional stress some of the bar staff were a bit grumpy Visited The Hat and Tun on 2016-12-07

I visited the Hat and Tun at the beginning of June to sample their street food pop up, CLAW. The pub had a lovely, cosy atmosphere. There were hoards of taxidermy hanging from the walls and a neat spot towards the back for intimate chat.
