Confirmation of final numbers is required no later than 7 days prior to the function. Charges for your food selection will be based on the numbers you have advised at this time, with payment for food ordered to be settled at this time. If you are running a bar tab for your function, a credit card is to be supplied as security, with the tab to be finalised and settled at the conclusion of your function with us.

Beverages and Bar Tabs

We offer various options when it comes to the bar and drinks, with you having the control on what you would like to offer your guests. A credit card is required if you would like to proceed with any type of bar tab, with the account being settled at the completion of your function. You can select from one of the following:

• Bar tab – Guests are provided with wrist bands and can go to the bar and order from the selection of beverages that you have approved. Once the amount you have specified has almost been reached, our functions manager will discuss if you wish to close the tab or continue for longer. 

• NO bar tab- if you do not wish to have a bar tab for your function this is fine. We do recommend that you advise your guests prior to arrival


We want you to make your function with us the best it can be, so we do allow you to decorate the area. Most balloon suppliers and florists will deliver direct to our venue, leaving you with one less thing to worry about. If you have event decorators coming in to decorate the space please give us ample notice and advise of the estimate time of arrival


The Sydney Junction Hotel can cater to your entertainment needs. We can hire soloists, bands, a jukebox and DJ’s through our booking agents. Payment is required 3 weeks in advance. Alternatively, we can organise a speaker if you wish to plug in your iPod for entertainment.


Children are permitted in the venue, however they must remain in the function area and be in the immediate company of a responsible adult at all times. Any minor trying to buy or consume alcohol will be removed from the venue immediately, as will any person encouraging this behaviour.
