Group Dining Restaurants Hire Guide

Ready to host a lovely evening in London dining with a group of your friends? Or maybe looking to find a restaurant that can handle your whole team from work in style and comfort? Whatever your need, here are a few tips to consider before booking a group dining restaurant in London:

  • The number of guests. Booking a group dining restaurant in London means first and foremost knowing how many guests you’re expecting, as many of the best venues have strict limits to how many they can seat in one area or private room.
  • The budget. Are you the one paying for the feast, or are you planning to split the bill with your guests? Both options are equally common, so make sure everyone is on the same page to avoid surprises.
  • Book in advance. It is no surprise that some of the best restaurants that offer group dining in London are perpetually busy doing just that, so we highly suggest having a few different places in mind and booking as far in advance as you can.
  • Consult the menu with your guests. It is a good practice to provide a range of options before the event, discuss the choices with the attendees and narrow the menu down to a couple of options. If your group is big and everyone would pick a different dish, it would slow things down significantly.
  • Seating arrangements. Are you looking for a sit-down affair or would you prefer to mingle and nibble on some finger foods? Take a look through our seating options filter to find the best arrangement for you and your guests.

How much does it cost to hire a group dining restaurant in London?

Whether you’re on a limited budget or looking for something particularly opulent, there are group dining restaurants in London that can suit your needs: Many group dining venues in London operate on a minimum spend model, meaning you pay nothing to rent the space but agree to spend a set amount on food and drinks. Prices vary with room size and location, but you can always find something in the £100 to £3,600 range. Other places have a flat hire fee (averaging between £70 - £500), with food and drinks added to the bill as per usual.

Fab venue, great location. Decor super vibey and lighting was beautiful. Buffet food was so good - big portions and very tasty. Had such a fun night! Staff were lovely and very helpful from start to finish. Would 10/10 recommend
Paul Warner
Booked The Drawing Room at Fortnum & Mason
Stunning location, excellent staff and delicious food. A significant cost (although far from the most expensive in the area), but worth it for a night that everyone will always remember. Thank you Sophie and team!
Louisa Waddell

Timi Sotire
Booked Private Dining Room at Ninety One
Matt, the person who served us for the evening, was so helpful. He was always available when I needed him, made sure that the food was served speedily, and answered every one of my queries. He made my experience amazing! Drinks prices were also super reasonable and the food tasted amazing. The private dining room had good vibes and we didn't hear the bar in the room.
