To call The Royal Exchange ‘iconic’ would be putting it lightly.

Since opening The Bar & Restaurant at The Royal Exchange in November 2018, we are now within...

We organized a delightful surprise birthday celebration at the Tasting Room. The atmosphere was enchanting, providing exceptional comfort, and the service extended by our servers, Sevi and Erkut, was absolutely outstanding. The event flowed seamlessly, adhering to the schedule perfectly. Our glasses remained filled throughout, without the need for us to request anything. The culinary offerings were also exquisite. Every individual present left the occasion content, thoroughly enjoying the venue selection. Without a doubt, we will consider them for our future events.

I arranged for a generous selection of canapés that were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. However, during the dinner service, the canapés were cleared away, and it would have been ideal to have them available on the side. This would have allowed those who were enjoying drinks at the end to continue nibbling. While not a major concern, I offer this as a constructive suggestion.

We hosted our wedding dinner reception for 45 people here following our Town Hall ceremony and we could not be happier with how the day turned out. To host such a special day in an iconic venue like Fortnum & Mason was a treat for everyone, especially for our out of town guests. Justine, our events contact, was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process in making our day perfect, and her and her team truly delivered and made the planning experience seamless. The food was impeccable - elevated but filling and extremely delicious. Every single guest told us that the food was one of the best meals they've had. The room itself was gorgeous and didn't need much additional decor aside from some fresh flowers and personal touches. The best part about F&M was that the minimum spend was more than reasonable - it allowed us to opt for the Wedding Package while also remaining in our budget. The venue also provided a lot of collateral such as table setting signage, place cards, printed personalised menus, etc. I cannot recommend the Drawing Room at Fortnum & Mason enough. It made our wedding day so special.

There are none!
