The Great Hall

Opened by Queen Victoria in 1845, this fine Hall complete with Minstrels’ Gallery, striking fresco and ceiling of beautifully worked oak is described as one of the most impressive surviving buildings of its kind in London.

By day the Great Hall operates as a dining hall for barrister members of the Inn. By evening this historic Hall transforms into the perfect setting for grand dinners for up to 250 guests or elegant receptions for up to 450 guests.

This building also boasts our adjoining Bench Rooms and an east facing terrace with views of our private gardens, perfect for an arrival reception.
