Weddings at Paternoster Chop House set the scene for a romantic celebration, not least thanks to its reputation as the location for Channel 4's popular programme First Dates, where love regularly blossoms in this very restaurant.
The space itself is bright and breezy, with clean white walls and plenty of natural light thanks to huge windows, that give stunning views of the city beyond the venue’s walls. Just across a small cobbled space is St Paul’s Cathedral, while only a five minute’s walk away is the River Thames. Both of these iconic London landmarks make the ideal backdrop to beautiful, timeless wedding photos.
In keeping with the smart city vibe of this wedding venue, Paternoster Chop House offers a chic terrace for wedding guests to relax on before they are called in for the ceremony or wedding breakfast. Here you can put on Champagne and canapés while your friends and family soak up the views.
Inside the main restaurant you are able to host 130 guests for a sit down meal, while if you plump for a standing reception you’ll be well able to fit up to 150 people in. The food itself at Paternoster Chop House weddings is overseen by head chef Alexandru-Ionel Sotir, who will work with you and your partner to come up with your perfect menu. Celebration feasts follow a similar to theme to the main offering, with dishes focused around beautiful cuts of meat and fish with a heavy British influence - think dishes like chilled pea soup, Severn Valley smoked salmon, or roasted chicken supreme with pickled shimeji mushrooms, but the kitchen team at Paternoster Chop House are only too happy to tailor a menu to suit your occasion.
There is a dedicated events team for Paternoster Chop House weddings, so you’ll be well looked after throughout your planning process. No detail is too big or too small, so from floral decorations for your tables to seating plans and live bands, you’ll be able to piece together your perfect day with the team.
