The Owsley Room is a purpose-built meeting and function room.

This modern space on the first floor of Bournbrook Pavilion helps your delegates stay focused, with clean lines and dark wood flooring. It’s available on weekdays for meetings, business lunches and private functions. Next door you’ll find Brook’s Sports Bar & Kitchen, perfect for unwinding after an event during term time. Outside term, this space is also available for private hire, as breakout space for meetings, or combining both rooms for social events and functions.
