A traditional country house atmosphere is the order of the day at Brocket Hall, just 22 miles north of Hyde Park Corner. This Grade I-listed country house matches a classically English setting to elegant modern facilities. The Hall is available for exclusive use, and its two challenging courses and renowned academy facilities make it a great golfing destination. Meeting and dining facilities are also available at nearby Auberge du Lac Restaurant and the Clubhouse.
The visible red-steel frame of the striking 1920s building is softened by greenery, while low lighting adds atmosphere at night. By day, the ground-floor café, which overlooks a cobbled courtyard, is a good spot for group lunches. Inside, the upstairs restaurant and bar can be hired exclusively, but for intimate dinners book the Mezzanine Room. Further spaces include the art deco Gallery Room and the Beaufort Room with its own bar.
Caravaggio is a City stalwart and a favourite with fans of genuine Italian food. The art deco space feels more like a 1930s luxury liner than a Square Mile dining room, with its marble-topped bar and high ceilings. Two mezzanine levels provide sizeable semi-private dining areas, or you can book exclusively. A complementary planning service from Etrusca group’s events arm puts set menus, decoration and entertainment at your fingertips.Information on Etrusca Restaurants & Events

Dating from 1670, Skinners’ Hall is home to one of the City’s ‘Great 12’ livery companies, combining stately halls, elegant chambers and homely rooms. Guests enter across a paved courtyard before heading, perhaps, to the Great Hall for a banquet, the Old Court Room for a private dinner or the handsome Court Room for a board meeting. The Roof Garden, with its elegant fountain, suits summer entertaining, while the Outer Hall’s roaring fire makes it a fine choice in winter.
