The Roux family are one of the most famous chef dynasties in the UK, and their restaurants are known for high-quality food and chic design. Roux at Parliament Square is no different, boasting grand, old world interiors thanks to its setting in the historic Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors building.
Roux at Parliament Square is fronted by Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr, but day-to-day, the kitchen is overseen by head chef Steve Groves, who took the crown in the 2009 series of MasterChef: The Professionals. If you’re looking to dine privately at the venue, there are a range of private dining rooms to choose from, each of which have the advantage of high ceilings and are all flooded with natural light.
If you’re hosting dinner for a large number of people, we’d recommend opting for either the Council Chamber or Lecture Hall. Both of these grand spaces are situated on the first floor and can be adapted to become banqueting halls for large feasts. If you’re planning a far more intimate occasion, choose the Library, which comes complete with colourful patterned chairs and a charming fireplace.
When the weather’s good, it’s hard to beat the views of London landmarks such as Big Ben from the President’s Suite & Terrace on the fifth floor. This outdoor terrace comes equipped with bright orange stools and high tables, and can be dressed with flickering candles to add some atmosphere.
The food menus at Roux at Parliament Square change periodically throughout the year and seek to champion the best of seasonal produce. There are various curated menus available for all manner of occasions, including corporate functions, formal dinners, birthday parties and more. However, if you want to create a bespoke menu for your event, the team will be happy to assist. A further benefit of Roux at Parliament Square is its central location, as the venue is just a short walk away from several of the capital’s most famous buildings.
