Private Dining Rooms

The Ayrton Room was originally a first floor bedroom. The Beatles slept here in 1964 and Jayne Mansfield in 1967. The De Aldworth Room next door is where the Fab Four and Brian Epstein took room service on John Lennon’s 24th birthday. These two small party rooms are ideal for 10-20 family and friends when you want to get together

The Abraham Brigg Room is a ground-floor room for afternoon tea events and wedding ceremonies. It can host up to 80 for a wedding ceremony or 20 - 50 for an afternoon tea gathering. The Stuart Room - the main banqueting suite - has a private bar, cloakroom facilities, dance floor and adjoining Colonnade Courtyard for events up to 150 guests.

The Gazebo, beside the sunken Parterre garden, is a small room for totally unique space for private dining for up to four people.
