Private Dining Venues in London

Private dining always sounds like a preserve of the ultra wealthy however that doesn’t have to be the case. Of course there are plenty of places in London where you can go and spend the equivalent of a 3-bed semi in Grimsby on a good knees up, but there are also many where for a reasonable minimum spend, or just for having enough guests, you can enjoy the exclusivity of a private dinner.

Here’s our take on some of London’s best private dining venues for all budgets;

The Wine Cellars at The Stafford Hotel, St James This venue is one for the wine lovers, a 380 year old cellar underneath one of London’s most exclusive hotels. The Stafford isn’t a shouty 5* hotel, it doesn’t need to be, it’s a traditionally British hotel that offers exemplary service to the great and the good. The Cellars cater for unique dining experiences immersed in one of London’s most extensive wine collections. Events are presided over by Gino Nardella, the master sommelier, who has curated the wine collection there since the 1980's, and who can host wine tastings alongside your event.

Tozi, Victoria We’ve long been fans of the wonderful Venetian Cicchetti offered at Tozi. The restaurant features a semi-private dining space on one large oval table for up to 18 guests. Within the dining space is a genuine vintage Fiat 500, great for photo opportunities after a few glasses of prosecco. Menus here are very affordable, groups of 6 or more can chose from two feast menus featuring a variety of small dishes for mains & dessert, priced at £45 & £55. Wines are available from £22 a bottle and they even have prosecco on tap!

Marcus at The Berkeley, Knightsbridge This two michelin starred restaurant inside Knightsbridge’s prestigious Berkeley Hotel is presided over by a chef who is renowned as he is revered, Marcus Wareing. The private dining room here seats up to 16 guests and is available on a minimum spend, £1700 for lunches and £2500 for dinners. Prices will make the eyes water slightly, the last client of ours who went there spent over £4k on dinner for 14, but you really do get what you pay for.

The German Gymnasium, Kings Cross The long awaited latest opening from London restauranteurs D&D sits within the confines of this stunning 150 year old grade 2 listed building, which was the UK’s first gymnasium. The food is a mixture of German and Northern Europe, with the wines taken from vineyards up and down the Danube River. On the mezzanine floor overlooking the main restaurant sits the semi-private dining room, which caters for up to 32 guests for breakfast meetings, lunches and private dinners. Minimum spends apply and will vary depending on the time of day, week and year.
