    Great very central location! The dialogue with the Marquis Cornwallis was very straight forward and they catered to all our small requests. The menu was priced very competitively for London standards with plenty of choice and flexibility for special dietary requirements. The food was delicious and especially the typical hearty British pub dishes and desserts were delicious. The staff was extremely friendly as well!

    The space is isolated from the rest of the pub but still easy to get to plus easy access to bathrooms. The bar itself inside this space is very nice and it feels like you've rented a whole pub instead of just one room. Service staff was very pleasant and very fast. People did not have to wait long for a beverage.

    The food brought out was very tasty. We were doing buffet style and it would have been helpful to have some kind of sign to indicate what the food was as some was fried or otherwise tricky to guess what it was. There were also shellfish (prawns?) served as part of one of the platter selections. These were not immediately easy to eat as finger food while standing which might be something to alter in the buffet menu for future bookings. These are small concerns and we were overall quite happy with the catering and the entire booking in general.

    - Really good private space for large groups of people (30 people fit comfortably with a bit of room spare!)
    - The food was tasty (Buffet) and arrived at the time we asked
    - We had access to tea/coffee/water throughout the whole day and could serve ourselves

    - Communication with the venue's management was quite poor. We asked for pastries/snacks for breakfast but nothing was provided (except an opened pack of biscuits!). Fortunately, there is a Waitrose is next door.
    - The venue did get very hot after lunch time and would benefit from some fans especially during the summer months
    - We could not get the sound system to work which hindered our presentations. The staff were unable to fix the issue whilst we were there

    We had such a great time at an informal party at Marquis Cornwallis that we went back for another! The pub has a nice atmosphere and a great range of beers. They have a larger room for hire upstairs but we reserved a corner of the bar area that has room for 20 or so seated and 30 or so if some are standing. The team were very flexible and accommodating with arrangements. We were able to bring balloons and a birthday cake. The buffet food is very good, made in-house and much more imaginative than offered elsewhere. There was a good range of vegetarian options and the friend with a nut allergy was content without special arrangements on both occasions.

    If I went back a third time, which is quite possible, I would ask if the food could be brought out in stages. That would suit the space and the nature of a buffet better.
