Dare to Dine at Lord’s Cricket Ground

Calling all cricket fans! Picture yourself digging into a sumptuous five-course dinner overlooking the most famous cricket ground in the world. That’s right, whether you’re looking to book in a private dining event for a special occasion or a gala dinner for your next big work do, Lord’s Cricket Ground is the place to be.

Conveniently located in leafy St John’s Wood and flaunting a fascinating collection of cricket-related memorabilia including the Ashes Urn, it’s an unforgettable dining venue for cricketers and non-cricketers alike.

From the old-world splendour of The Long Room to the sophistication of the Thomas Lord Suite and the spectacular views of Pelham’s, Lord’s boasts 12 spaces ranging in capacity from 12 to 900 people. Here, we take a look at some of our favourites.

The Long Room

The Long Room at Lord's Cricket Ground

Can you imagine dining in the room that international cricket players pass through on their way on and off the cricket ground?

The Long Room is a sight that’s recognised all around the world. Cricket correspondent Lawrence Booth even described it once as ‘the most evocative four walls in world cricket’. Think of your friends’ and colleagues’ faces when you take them through the doors of the Lord’s Pavilion and give them the inside scoop on this fascinating room!

We can’t get enough of those high, ornate ceilings and gorgeous views over the cricket ground. Plus, dining here is a great chance to take a peek at the paintings lining the walls of this hallowed room. Depicting the faces of famous cricketers from the 18th to the 21st Century, inclusion on these walls is an honour awarded to only the very best in the business.

Food and cricket is an age-old combination. So, with a capacity of 200, there’s no location more fitting for your next dining event.


Pelham's at Lord's Cricket Ground

If it’s unrivalled views of the pitch you’re after, you can’t beat Pelham’s. Its floor-to-ceiling windows offer panoramic views of the cricket ground and media centre.

This contemporary space may not be packed with memorabilia like some of Lord’s Cricket Ground’s other spaces, but it more than makes up for that in natural light and vistas.

And that’s not all! If you’re on a mission to save the planet, you’ll love Pelham's sustainability drive. It has solar and photovoltaic panels, green walls and even a rainwater recycling system.

The space fits 136 guests for dining, so it’s made for those special private dining occasions - whether that’s a 60th birthday party or a work shindig. Best of all, Pelham’s is one of those wow-inducing venues that’s guaranteed to impress both your mum and your boss!

Thomas Lord Suite

Are you looking for that undefinable middle-ground between functionality and outright stylishness?

You’ll find the Thomas Lord Suite next to the Grade II listed Grace Gate. With a sleek and sophisticated interior, it offers unbeatable views of the Pavilion and Harris Garden.

Not only is the Thomas Lord Suite more modern than The Long Room, but it’s also bigger. We love that it fits 250 people for dining and still leaves enough room for a bit of a boogie! In fact, it has its very own music and DJ facilities at your disposal.

So, whether you opt for Lord’s Cricket Ground’s award-winning in-house catering or choose to go for dry hire, the Thomas Lord Suite is your perfect gala dinner location.
