Private Dining


From afternoon tea served at Bath’s sparkling Pump Room, to modern British dishes at the peak of London’s Gherkin. While each of our venues has its own character, they are all united by a focus on exceptional service and expertise.

Founded in 1847, Searcys is one of the UK’s longest-running events hospitality companies. Our story can be traced back to the vision of one man: Victorian entrepreneur and the Duke of Northumberland’s confectioner, John Searcy.

Using seasonal and high-quality produce, our chefs reimagine and reinvent the modern British dishes we all know and love. Our recently awarded Two Star Food Made Good rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association accreditation is a testament to how provenance and sustainability are at the heart of our business.

Sharing the spotlight with our food is our collection of iconic venues that are available to hire. Whether it’s a meeting, a party or a wedding – each setting makes for an event like no other.
