Everything about this experience was great - from negotiating the package of food and drinks to order, to responsive communication, accommodating question before hand, to the actual evening event. The space is stylish, intimate and the staff were lovely and attentive. All our guests were blown away by such a central, culturally interesting location (and we were surprised how reasonable the evening and costs were). Can't recommend the space enough.

Very quick reply and helpful info


Located in the newly refurbished New Wing of Somerset House and taking its name from Sir James Pennethorne, the 19th century English architect who designed the New Wing, Pennethorne's bar is now open.

Pennethorne’s emerges onto the London bar scene with an impressive array of wonderful, exotic and mouth-wateringly delicious cocktails. Pennethorne’s have reinvented post-work drinks in their central, Somerset House location by also serving delicious food pairings which beautifully compliment the exciting new bar offering. Pennethorne’s offers stunning interiors for evening drinks and outside seating to while away the long summer nights in style.

Pennethorne’s is open Monday to Saturday for breakfast through to dinner.
