dining Set against the backdrop of the most powerful meeting arena in Britain, the hotelâ€™s private dining spaces are a major draw in a more discrete location. Our signature restaurant Blue Boar Smokehouse offers two exclusive private dining rooms, both hidden behind our floor to ceiling wall of wine and completely closed off from the restaurant ensuring the ultimate in privacy. Each room comfortably holds 10 guests but if you have a bigger party, we can seamlessly join the two to provide private dinners for up to 20 people. Private dining menus can be selected from our a la carte menu or from our Festive Feasting Menu which is served family style and shared by the whole table. Available from 1stâ€“24th December, the three course Feasting Menu features signature dishes such as Blue Boar Ribs and classic Christmas turkey with a Smokehouse twist.

This charming and ethereal space can be exclusively taken over for groups of up to 120 guests. By night, relaxed lighting and candles create an ambiance akin to that of an elegant townhouse reception room. Themed canapés, dedicated drinks waiters circulating the room to refresh glasses and the opportunity for live music ensures Emmeline’s is Westminster’s most sought after space for private hire. By day the floor to ceiling windows and glass roof flood the room with natural light. Contemporary style furniture, whimsical floral arrangements and a bespoke art collection create the perfect setting for Afternoon Tea or a Champagne reception.
