Venues and Spaces


26 St. John Street,
London, EC1M 4AY

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 morning meetings, photo shoots and filming in its time.


The bar will hold a maximum of 80 guests standing. The area is more suited to casual buffet style affairs; best enjoyed with a whole suckling pig as the centrepiece, which for £450 will fill 70 generous buns. The bar function menu changes with the seasons, it’s as versatile as the space is so can be tailored to perfectly suit your function.

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 180 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.

94-96 Commercial Street,
London, E1 6LZ


Our restaurant is available for exclusive use, with maximum capacity being 64. Our head chef, Arnold, 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.


41 Maltby Street,
London, SE1 3PA


The entire restaurant is available for exclusive hire for breakfast, lunch or dinner, with a maximum capacity of 28 guests for a sit down meal or 45 guests for a standing reception. Hire the space for breakfast and enjoy our famous Old Spot bacon sandwich alongside an array of freshly baked goodies. For lunch or dinner dine in feasting style from large sharing platters spread down the middle of the table.

At Christmas, Maltby is ideal for celebratory lunches and dinners, with the possibility of decorating the space to suit, as it is all your own. View our prices, festive menus and decorations here.
