Looking for the perfect private dining room for 40 people? You’re in luck! We’ve compiled some of the best options in London so you don’t have to, with options for every budget, style, cuisine and occasion.

Finding a private dining room for 40 people might seem like a challenging task. Many private spaces cater for small groups and more intimate occasions only, such as an anniversary dinner or a client lunch. But there are plenty of exclusive hire spaces that cater for larger groups, too. Venues of this size are usually suited to celebrations with family and friends, small receptions and birthdays, while on the corporate side you might be looking at Christmas parties or networking events.

In this list, you’ll find a whole range of options to suit all your event planning needs. Some venues are available for exclusive hire which means that you and your loved ones gain access to the entire venue for your event. Consider it the ultimate private dining room! Elsewhere, you’ll find dedicated spaces with room for up to 40 seated guests. One offering, for example, houses a mezzanine-level space that overlooks the main dining room, while another is a space situated inside a food hall with its own bar and kitchen counter. Case in point: we can almost guarantee you’ll find a private dining room you like in this list.

The hard part, of course, is choosing one. If you click through to the relevant listing, you’ll find full descriptions about the venue, as well as photos, menus, room capacities and how to book. Whatever you’re planning, whether it’s a celebration with friends or a team party, make sure to consult our list of the best private dining rooms in London for 40 people first. Then, go ahead and click ‘book now’ to nail down your reservation.
