Grocer to the Queen and most of her predecessors since 1707, this venerable institution has five private dining spaces. On the fourth floor, the Drawing Room is a light, airy space for up to 80, while the Tasting Room lends itself to lunches, dinners and afternoon teas. At lower-ground level, medieval stoneware and decorative panelling create an intimate atmosphere in the Crypt, which suits wine tastings and dinners. The Boardroom – the venue of choice for Fortnum’s own directors for more than a century – is a secluded space for meetings. The Gallery restaurant seats 100 and can be hired exclusively for private events.
