The Cooper’s Room is completely private, and located off to the right side of the pub. This space was named in homage to our original location in this area, Cooper.
It’s ideal for any group dinner or reception with an intimate dining area and westward facing to watch a perfect sunset.


Capacity: Capacity: 18 seated (low-tops) or up to 30 mostly standing

The Cutting Room is a completely private space, tucked away behind the bar. Within the Cutting Room, there are 3 low-tops each seating up to 6 people, and 5 high-tops each seating an additional 2 people at bar stools, or the low-tops tables can be pushed against the wall for an appetizer buffet set-up (this then reduces the seating option to just the high-tops).
