Located round the corner from Farringdon station, The Coach Clerkenwell is a neighbourhood pub, restaurant and hotel serving elegant, bistro-style food with French and British influences.
There are three rooms available for private dining at The Coach, including The Blue Room, The Garden Room and Terrace and The Dining Room. Each offers something a little bit different, from size to décor, in order to cater to groups and occasions of all types.
The Blue Room is the most intimate of the trio, seating up to 10 guests around a single oval wooden table. It also boasts deep, royal blue walls, grand hanging paintings and dark wooden furniture to create a traditional, homely feel. It would make a great option for a birthday or work lunch.
The Garden Room and Terrace is a bright and spacious room on the ground floor, with high ceilings and a maximum capacity of 40 seated. At the end of the room are floor-to-ceiling windows that replicate the style of a greenhouse, and provide a looking glass through to the walled terrace outside, which guests are able to use during the warmer months. A patchwork of pictures cover the walls while transparent glass lampshades hang from the ceiling.
The first floor Dining Room is an elegant space with green walls and chairs, parquet flooring and separate wooden tables. Seating up to 50 guests, or 70 standing, it’s a flexible room that can be used for anything from informal parties to drinks receptions to big sit-down dinners.
The Coach offers a selection of private dining menus, from ‘grazing’ to ‘feasting’ options, but if you’d rather curate your own personal menu then there’s the option to do that, too. Examples of dishes include Hereford slow-cooked beef cheek in red wine, moules marinières with Normandy cream, Devon hand-picked crab tartare and black treacle pudding to finish. Pair your menu with a host of wines from its extensive list, including many French varieties.
