Small Private Dining Rooms Hire Guide

London is rich not only in history and beautiful architecture, but also in the sphere of gastronomy. The options here seem almost unlimited and ever-growing - from laid-back gastropubs and bistros to high-end restaurants serving the most luxurious meals, England’s capital offers something for everyone. A perfect opportunity to enjoy this bounty is to hire a small private dining room that offers everything you need for your event. No matter what kind of event you wish to organise and what the location needs to be, we are sure you will be able to find the perfect locale! And don’t worry if you are on a limited budget - you can find options at a manageable price among our vast selection of private dining areas for hire in London.

Despite their limited size, London’s private dining rooms can be the perfect fit for many different types of events. We can help you choose just the right location, no matter if you are planning a small business dinner or just inviting your friends! Here are some ideas that we find these venues serve best:

  • Family get-together - We all know how stressful it is to prepare a dinner for your entire family, but sitting in loud restaurants and bars takes away from the personal atmosphere you have at home. Hiring a small, private room in one of the amazing venues near you is the perfect solution - you can save yourself the stress of cooking and just enjoy the time with your nearest and dearest.
  • Fun (or cosy!) evening with your friends - Finding a date when everyone in your friend group is available is hard work, so success should be celebrated accordingly! Organising an event your squad would enjoy in one of the private rooms in London comes with a ton of possibilities - consider a plate sharing evening, a cooking class, or just a laid-back dinner in a cosy atmosphere.
  • Unique food experience - London offers a huge variety of food types and cuisines, and whether you live there or are just visiting, it would be a great loss not to dive into the local food scene.  Find a private dining room that allows you to try something new and one of a kind - this kind of experience is great both for team bonding and sharing with your closest friends.
  • Intimate client dinner - If you run a business, it might be a good idea to keep those small dining spaces in mind when you need to host a meeting with a client. A refined setting and a calm, private atmosphere will be just right for any negotiations and discussions in a professional context.

Whatever kind of event you’re planning, there are a few things to keep in mind before booking the private dining room in London that suits your needs. We have a few tips that will make it all a much easier and more pleasant experience:

  • Consider the capacity of the space – First and foremost, booking a private dining room means knowing how many guests you’re expecting. Some of the rooms may sit at fewer than 10 people, while others will allow you to invite 20 or even 50. Make sure you know how many seats you will need and filter venues based on that criteria for best results!
  • Be flexible and think ahead – The best small rooms in London’s restaurants are perpetually busy, so we highly suggest having a few different places in mind and booking as far in advance as you can. Compiling a list of multiple venues that you are happy with will help you avoid rescheduling and organisational issues!
  • Check on dietary restrictions – Are any of your guests vegan? Or perhaps gluten-free? After you check with your guests, make sure to also look into the options provided by the places you’re planning to book. You wouldn’t want some of your dinner guests to leave hungry! The food scene in London is incredibly diverse, so we are confident that you can find just what you need.
  • Mark down all your requirements - Before starting your search, determine all the additional features you want from the venue. Do you need it to be wheelchair accessible? Would you like the room to have air conditioning? Will the guests need parking spaces near the restaurant? Searching for venues that offer these options is easy with our smart filters.
  • Don’t forget about the location - How will you and your guests get to the restaurant? Are any of them going to stay in a hotel? Before choosing the dining room you want to go with, it’s good to make sure the area it’s located in is convenient for everyone attending. Whether you are looking for a place in Covent Garden, Kensington, or any other area of town, our search features can help you find the perfect fit in just the right location.

Daniela Fernanda Baeza Breinbauer
Booked Private Room at Bobo Social CS
Everything was absolutely perfect! Poppy and Mira were extremely helpful during the planning stages, and super flexible to our needs! During the event itself, all of the staff and chefs were super friendly and really understanding when people arrived a bit late (managing 35 friends can get stressful!). They did everything possible to make sure we had a good time. The venue is beautiful and comfortable, and fantastic value - I cannot recommend this place more!

We had the best experience with Ieva and her team. From the day we booked the private dining, she has given her hundred percent. Amazing service and food. We had an unforgettable ceremony dinner thanks to Ieva.

Booked The River Room at The Blue Anchor
Overall a top venue that I’d recommend. It’s a beautiful room in a really nice location. Good dedicated bar and restroom facilities too. The staff were also great, very friendly and helpful. The minimum spend also seemed reasonable, so I didn’t have any concerns about reaching it which was nice.
Isabella Brickhill
Booked The Terrace at Near & Far Camden
I had my 21st Birthday here and the restaurant looked amazing inside, the terrace at the top was perfect for a large sit down meal and had a lovely view. Food and drinks were also great and very good value. Staff were very friendly and happy to help with any requests. My friends and I had a lovely evening.
David Adley
Booked Green Room at The Crooked Well
The Green Room was a lovely little room with nice decor and close to the hustle and bustle of the kitchen, which gave a good atmosphere. The food was very good, particularly the breaded halloumi. We very much enjoyed the family-style serve yourself way of enjoying everything.
