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.

The Abraham Brigg Room is a ground floor room for large afternoon tea events. 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 dining in warmer months, for up to four people.
