The Old Hall is a wonderful example of beautifully maintained Tudor architecture and has many notable features including the wooden screen at the south end designed by Inigo Jones, and Hogarth's painting of 'Paul before Felix' on the North wall. It creates a stunning and unique setting for seated dining for up to 120 guests for lunch or dinner.
Opened by Queen Victoria in 1845, the Great Hall, complete with striking fresco, minstrel's gallery and a ceiling of beautifully worked oak, is described as one of the most impressive surviving buildings of its kind in London and provides a spectacular setting for all types of events.

Venues for business meetings and seminars don't have to look dull, and this room proves it.

The room is fully furnished to fit up to 50 people for meeting purposes.
