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. Suitable for receptions for up to 450 guests, dinners for up to 250 guests, lectures and ceremonies for up to 300 guests and wedding receptions and dinner dances for up to 200 guests. The adjoining Bench Rooms and an east facing terrace overlooking impressive grounds is perfect for arrival receptions.
Opened in 2018 by Queen Elizabeth II, the Ashworth Centre is a purpose-built event space set beneath the Great Hall, expertly designed to allow natural daylight to flood the suite through generous skylights. The stylish double-height lecture theatre with retractable seating for up to 158 delegates features integrated audio-visual. Ten meeting rooms split across two floors may be booked individually for smaller meetings for up to 16 boardroom or 25 theatre, or the partition walls can be withdrawn allowing flexible multi-room formats for breakout spaces or refreshments.
The Old Court Room is named after its original use and was once a lively scene of legal activity. Today its walls house the Inn's antiquarian books and the room offers a tranquil setting flooded with natural daylight, with views across the Inn's estate.
The Members' Common Room was created by building a mezzanine floor within the original Victorian kitchens of the Great Hall. The vaulted ceilings have been restored to their former glory allowing guests to enjoy the preserved Victorian architecture. A contemporary space which retains its historic origins complete with private south facing terrace.
