Exclusive to IoD members and guests

The Restaurant at 116 Pall Mall delivers a truly unique and memorable dining experience.

The Restaurant has now moved from the Carlton Room, to the Morning and Spears room adjacent to the grand staircase. This brighter, airy space overlooking Waterloo Place is a more inviting spot to dine and watch the world go by, creating a prime destination at the heart of 116 Pall Mall.

What you can expect

  • A new menu – expect British food with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients
  • A relaxed environment perfectly suited for business lunching and after-work entertaining
  • Dishes such as rump of Welsh lamb with a pistachio crust, asparagus and labneh | pan-fried sea trout with razor clam, bouillabaisse and samphire | fillet of beef with oxtail pastille and port jus

Restaurant launch FAQs

The Carlton Room

The Carlton room will become a members’ lounge open from 8am–10.30pm with access to tables in our beautiful tranquil garden during the spring and summer months – an ideal location for breakfast. A lounge menu will be available in the Carlton room and drinks can be enjoyed at its cocktail bar or in the Wine Bar.

It will also be available for hire as a function space after 5pm and all day Saturday/Sunday. Members will still be able to use the space after 5pm on weekdays if there is no function booking. Food service will stop at 6.30pm but the bar will  remain open.

The Carlton Room itself was refurbished in September 2014 by Russell Sage Studio, whose previous designs include some of London’s top restaurants such as Bread Street Kitchen, Quaglino’s and the Savoy Grill.

It is a sophisticated yet relaxed space where IoD members can justifiably feel proud to entertain guests and friends. The setting is both aesthetically beautiful and welcoming but also embraces its rich history.

The cocktail bar

The cocktail bar located in the Carlton room offers an impressive selection of wines, spirits and cocktails and a stylish setting to meet friends and colleagues.

Its former patrons include none other than James Bond author Ian Fleming who would often drop into the club for a pink gin after a day of cracking codes with Naval Intelligence.
