    We are a small company of 14 people and are looking for a private space for Christmas. I notice that you have the Vault which might work well for us.
    Could you advise what food options you have for a Christmas party. Also, would you offer a drinks package?

    Hi There

    I was looking to book a Christmas dinner at your restaurant for around 25 people. Our budget per head is £30-£35 but our bar spend is likely to be significant.

    We are a large professional services firm and have limited social committee funding so can’t go above £35 per head for the meal though drinks are funded personally and we usually have a very large bar bill by the end of the night.

    If you could get options back to me that’d be great.

    I found your Christmas 2013 Christmas menus but can’t find a 2015 menu – would it be possible to provide one please?

    I’m currently trying to plan our office Christmas meal.

    Thank you,

      Hey there, the 2015 buffet and private dining menus are on this page. We’ll email it to you also so you can plan.

        Hello, I’m looking at holding a drinks reception for about 25 on Thursday Dec 17th from 4.00pm – 6.00pm. Could you let me know if a room is available and what the minimum spend would be?

        We would probably want some canapes too.

        Best wishes,


        • Frankie Wallington

          Hi Andy, I’ve copied this message and sent it to the team who handle bookings to see what’s available. I’ve copied your email in too so they can come back to you directly with minimum spend and details of canapaes.
