Designed for private functions, this room is ideal for breakfast meetings, lunches,Â dinners, cocktail parties and small corporate events.
Although our menu changes daily, we are able to send sample monthly suggestions that reflect our style and indicate the types of ingredients and dishes that will be in season at the time of your event. We always try to incorporate special requests from the host or hostess. Alternatively you may prefer to leave the decision to Sally and her team, who will create a menu on the day (a working formula now over thirty years old). We always have alternative dishes on hand for guests with dietary requirements.
We have an extensive cellar of wines from around the world, which our sommelier will gladly advise on.
Maximum seating: 15 guests at 1 large oval table or 28 guests at 3 large circular tables (2 x 9 and 1 x 10).
We also offer exclusive use of the entire restaurant, or part of it, for groups in excess of 40.
