Your Guide To London Private Dining

Your Guide to Private Dining in London Planning a private dining event in London? We all love a busy restaurant – the atmosphere and buzz of London’s dining venues contribute to the capital’s well-earned reputation as a global foodie powerhouse. That said, sometimes the party or dinner requires a bit more privacy. Fear not, the best of London’s restaurants offer intimate and private dining rooms alongside their more public spaces. Let this guide ease you through the process and get you one step closer to that perfect first bite.

What kind of private dining experience are you looking for?

There are a lot of options out there and, to be honest, it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. No one wants to spend their free time scrolling endlessly through venue after venue, desperately trying to make a decision based on a thumb-sized photo of some canapés. To make the most of your time it’s worth having an idea of what kind of food you’re looking for in your private dining event. Do you want to put on a full gourmet spread to impress at your corporate lunch? Or are you and your friends looking for a private space to have a few drinks, a quick bite to eat and… a few more drinks?

It’s important to discover any dietary restrictions and convey them to the venue as soon as possible. Or, alternatively, let us know any allergies or preferences you have and we’ll ensure only relevant venues reach out to host your private dining event.

Top tip: It’s also worth considering some of the less traditional private dining options. London is host to a wealth of food venues that let you take part in the cooking process. How does tossing your own pizza dough sound? How about making pasta from scratch? There are lots of venues that get you involved in the cooking process and don’t worry - you won’t have to wash up after.

Know your budget

The key to planning a successful private dining room is budgeting well. No one likes nasty surprises at the end of a good meal so make sure you know your upper spend limit before you order that last helping of profiteroles. A budget should be allocated per person – this gives you maximum control over both the overall cost and the implications of that for each guest. HeadBox will do all the calculations for you and make sure everything stays within your set budget.

Location, location, location

London is a sprawling city, with each area having its own distinctive feel and character. Consider this when searching for a venue – luxury, high-end venues will tend to be in the central areas of London, whereas the boroughs might be more appropriate for a big, easy private dining room that won’t break the bank. Transport is also key. If alcohol is going to be involved then you’ll want to be in easy reach of public transport or, for the super organised, book your taxis before to guarantee a swift arrival and departure.

Make sure you set the agenda

This is your private dining event – you should set the criteria for the venues to meet. Want an outside area? Natural light flooding the room? Have a preference on seating style? Tell us exactly what private dining experience you want, where you want it, and when you want it. We’ll do the rest.

FAQs

What is a private dining experience?

A private dining experience is simply where a restaurant or food venue provides you with your own secluded space to enjoy without the bustle of the larger restaurant. Whether it’s a private dining room or your own private dining hall, the option allows you to enjoy restaurant standard food alongside the privacy you might expect at home.

How much does it cost to hire a private dining room in London?

Prices of private dining rooms vary according to location, restaurant type and the size of your party. Per person, the price range tends to be between £50 and £200. It’s worth noting that a lot of venues will set a minimum spend (either overall cost or per person). Set your budget before you enquire to make sure you’re only hearing from the relevant dining venues.

What are the best private dining rooms in London?

The best private dining rooms in London will be the ones that fulfil the criteria you set out. With this in mind we’ve listed a few that cater to common private dining specifications:

SushiSamba Lounge

Located within walking distance of Liverpool Street, SushiSamba allows you to make exclusive use of the 39th floor – giving you unparalleled views over the city of London whilst you consume your body weight in delicious sushi.

Daphne’s

The Conservatory is a West London staple. Offering an array of Venetian inspired foods, Daphne’s is a charming all-season venue that really feels part of the neighbourhood. They also allow dogs, as if you need any other reason to book.

Boundary Rooftop

Moving eastwards towards Shoreditch lays the sublime Boundry Rooftop. Come rain or shine this breathtaking dining area allows you to make your private event extra special.

How can I hire a private room in London?

Phones and emails are a great way to reach specific venues, but it’s often the case that both yourself and the venue can be very busy – sometimes getting that booking sorted can feel like a mammoth task itself. Hiring a private dining room doesn’t have to be an endless chain of emails and phone calls. Tell us exactly what you’re after and we’ll make sure only the right venues reach out to you.
