Christmas comes with a built-in sense of occasion, and it doesn’t get much grander than Roux at Parliament Square, which is housed inside the historic Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors building.
The restaurant is fronted by Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr, while the kitchen is mainly overseen by head chef Steve Groves, who won MasterChef: The Professionals back in 2009. As a whole the venue boasts 10 function rooms, which all benefit from high ceilings and plenty of natural light.
The spaces at Roux at Parliament Square are suitable for a wide range of festive events accommodating various party sizes, and the rooms are adaptable too. If you’re hosting a large-scale gathering, we’d recommend the grand Council Chamber and Lecture Hall which can be transformed into banqueting halls for mighty Christmas feasts. If you’re keeping things more low-key, The Library Room is better suited to more intimate dining occasions.
