Private Dining Room

The Private Dining room, which was once a former loading bay, is a perfect venue for private dining up to 16 people. The room has also been used for afternoon meetings, photo shoots and filming in its time.

Restaurant and Bar

The entire restaurant and bar may be hired for a sit down meal for up to 120 guests, and for a more casual canapé based reception a maximum of 150 guests can be catered for. The combined bar and restaurant allows great flexibility for pre and post dinner drinks, the bar area can become a dance floor or for extra guests arriving later. This gives you an exclusive dining experience for either lunch or dinner and on the weekends. We’ve happily hosted wedding receptions, corporate parties, and events for galleries, artists, and other good food and wine people.

Bread and Wine

Our restaurant is available for exclusive use, with maximum capacity being 72. Our head chef, Farokh, can create a bespoke menu especially tailored around our guest’s tastes. As usual we offer a ‘feasting’ style of dining - meaning we serve each dish on large platters brought to the table to encourage feasting and sharing. We have also been used for filming and photo shoots.
