The dedicated team will be on hand to plan and assist wherever needed to ensure your special day goes smoothly, seeing to everything from personalised place cards to furniture removal.

Exclusive hire of Ochre will allow up to 150 standing guests in the main dining room, a light and airy space with a high ceiling, large windows and sophisticated neutral tones. This also includes use of the bar and lounge area, an integrated DJ booth and your own private entrance on Charing Cross Road. The room is licensed until 2:30am, so is a great choice if you’re after a lively reception complete with Champagne, canapes, music and dancing.

Smaller parties of up to 30 might opt for semi-exclusive hire which includes use of the bar and lounge area, perfect for a more compact reception with just close friends and family. The adjacent private dining room is a great choice for an intimate wedding breakfast of up to 19 guests. Boasting direct views of St-Martin-in-the-Fields and Nelson’s Column, this totally self-contained space offers the utmost exclusivity so you can celebrate in private.

There are several menus on offer for a sit-down meal, as well as a list of canapes for receptions. Food is modern British, and elevated with seasonal ingredients of only the highest quality. To toast the happy couple, there is an impressive Champagne selection and optional extras like oysters, caviar and English and Irish cheeses from Neals Yard.
