Christening and parties at the Old Chain Pier

Are you looking for somewhere intimate and cosy to welcome your new arrival or celebrate a special birthday?

Then look no further than the Old Chain Pier. Situated in the heart of Newhaven with breathtaking views across the Forth, there is no better place to gather your friends and family to celebrate your new addition to the family.

Wether you are looking for a sit down meal with all the trimmings or a relaxed buffet, we can cater for your specific needs tailored to a budget that suits you and your family. Our beautiful conservatory can cater for up to 25 people for a sit down dinner and up to 35 people for a buffet option. Or for an even more cosy affair, our mezzanine area can cater for 10-20 people. Our friendly team will look after you right through your experience from your initial booking to the big day itself and nothing is too much trouble.

If you’re opting for an intimate, sit down dinner then our head chef will be happy to meet with you to discuss a suitable option for you and your party. If you’d prefer a more relaxed buffet option then you can choose from the following options:
