Opened in 1845 by Queen Victoria, the Great Hall provides the perfect setting for your wedding on a grand scale with its magnificent elevated ceiling, stunning stained glass windows and vast fresco by the renowned G.F. Watts.
Welcome your guests in the distinguished Bench Rooms adjoining the Hall, or in fine weather the East Terrace – overlooking the manicured lawns of the Inn – can be used for your arrival reception. The imposing wooden doors are then opened to reveal the stunning Hall within where, amidst rapturous applause, your guests welcome the newly married couple to dine.
After your wedding breakfast, the wedding party can dance the night away under the stunning ceiling of one of the finest buildings in London.
- Dinner dance 70 - 120
- Standing reception 80 - 200
The Old Hall, considered one of the finest Tudor buildings in London, provides an intimate setting for your guests to dine. Amongst its many notable features are the wooden screen designed by Inigo Jones and Hogarth’s painting of “Paul Before Felix”.
Your guests are welcomed into the Crypt underneath the Hall, which was traditionally used for the storage of fuel, food and wine, but now the stone vaulted ceiling has been restored to its former glory to provide an atmospheric setting for pre-dinner drinks.
- Lunch or Dinner 50 (Subject to refurbishment)
- Standing reception 120 (Subject to refurbishment)
For a more intimate wedding celebration, the Members’ Common Room (MCR) with its south facing terrace overlooking the beautiful landscaped gardens and fountains of New Square is perfect for a post-ceremony reception or afternoon tea style celebration.
