In these Terms & Conditions Hemingway’s Brewery is referred to as ‘the Operator.’ The Client’s details and details of the function appear on Function Details form, which is to be read together with these terms and conditions.

A 20% deposit, signed terms and conditions, and function details form must be returned to the Operator within 14 days of receipt by the Client. Once the deposit, function details form and signed terms and conditions form has been received, the Operator will issue a confirmation to the Client. Until the confirmation has been issued, the Operator reserves the right to continue offering the space to other interested parties.

Final numbers must be confirmed 14 days prior to the event. Any reduction after this date will be charged at the previously guaranteed numbers. If the Client does not provide final numbers to the Operator, the Operator will refer to the ‘total guests’ listed on the function details form. A final invoice will be issued at this time and is to be paid in full prior to the event. If you have arranged ‘Beverages on Consumption’ then the bar tab must be paid in full at the completion of the function.

Minimum spend limits apply to most bookings. All food and beverage purchases made by the Client and their guests contribute to the minimum spend. All events finish no later than midnight. Any shortfall in achieving the minimum spend will be charged as a room hire to the client.


If the Client wishes to cancel the event, any cancellation must be in writing and the following fees apply:

  • More than 28 days prior to the event date - all payments will be refunded
  • 14-27 days prior to the event date - 100% of the deposit will be retained by Hemingway’s Brewery
  • 7-13 days prior to the event date  - 50% of the total value of the event will be retained by Hemingway’s Brewery
  • 0-6 days prior to the event date – 100% of the total value of the event will be retained by Hemingway’s Brewery
  • Menu details must be finalised at least 14 days prior to the date of the function.
  • Menus may be selected from the range of food and beverage items made available by the Operator.
  • The prices for menus quoted by the Operator are subject to change, and the Operator will notify the Client of any such change.
  • If the Operator is unable to provide part or all of the selected menu, the Operator reserves the right to adapt the selected menu in consultation with the Client.

The Client acknowledges that other than designated smoking areas, all areas in which a proposed event is to be conducted are to be smoke free, in accordance with Queensland Law.
