Flavour of the Lanes

Classy settings in a fabulous pub, with plenty of character. A stone throw from Brighton Beach. Range of packages available.

The Greene Room’s plush surroundings and quirky layout lends itself perfectly for smaller and more unique wedding receptions.  Located on the first floor of the hugely popular Cricketers public house at Black Lion Street in The Lanes, The Greene Room is spread across three interlinked rooms that provide great areas for drinkers, dancers and diners alike!

The location is ideal being situated just a short walk from Brighton Registry Office and Brighton Beach, and at the heart of the vibrant Lanes area of Brighton City Centre.

A stylish and classy décor of funky fuscia lighting combined with creams, purples and smooth browns help create a classically elegant ambience that is perfect for any celebratory event.  The venue has its own self-contained bar and toilet facilities as well as music/live music facilities.  The Greene Room can host up to 65 guests for a buffet/drinks reception and up to 40 for a sit down wedding breakfast.

The Cricketers & Greene Room have earned an envious reputation for its quality food in recent years.  There are a number of wedding packages available; three buffet style packages and two wedding breakfast packages.  These wedding packages can be altered to the happy couple’s liking and a complete bespoke menu can be arranged with the Head Chef should there be very specific requests.

With particular favourites such as Mini fish and chips with tartar sauce, Miniature burgers with smoked cheese on brioche baps and locally cured bacon and maple syrup sausage rolls all washed back with Roast tomato bloody Mary and celery shots, the buffet menus always receive excellent feedback.

And if a Wedding Breakfast is the order of the day then you could expect something along the lines of Chicken liver and port parfait, pickled walnuts, balsamic jelly and croutons to start, with a main course of Pan fried South Downs fillet of beef with dripping chips, smoked bacon, baby onions and mushrooms with a brandy cream and finished off with Dark chocolate and amaretto fondant with pistachio ice cream and puree.

Being situated above a beautiful public house, full of character and charm has plenty of benefits for your guests.  An interesting selection of Real Ales and wines are available as well as a good selection of well-known beers, spirits and soft drinks.  Packages often include drinks reception and Champagne deals, but once again drinks packages can be tailor made to meet the bride & bridegroom’s requirements.

If you’re looking for a ‘place of interest’ for your wedding reception venue then The Greene Room also provides a wealth of historical memories. With copy letters from Graham Greene – the pub was immortalised by the author in his classic novel “Brighton Rock” and memorabilia concerning ‘Jack The Ripper’ who was known to use the premises – there is plenty for guests to look at and read should they wish for a short break from all of the frivolities.

Upon booking your wedding reception at The Greene Room you would be introduced to a member of the management team who would act as the event co-ordinator for your big day ensuring everything ran smoothly, and they would be your point of contact for any pre-arrangements and on the day of course.
