Rothamsted Restaurant is a wonderfully light and airy space, with a high ceiling, floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the conservatory area, and a separate bar area. This means that for clients who book this space in the evenings, you can be completely self-contained in this space should you wish.
The restaurant itself can be used to host a range of functions, including gala dinners, banquets, team dinners, lunches, parties, seasonal events, comedy nights, quiz nights, team-building events, christenings, family occasions, and so much more.
With a built-in sound system which is run from the Fowden Hall AV booth and a TV screen on the wall, it is perfect for both relaxed and formal dinners. It is open during the day offering fresh food to the public and to Rothamsted staff, students and tenants.
Lunch vouchers can be used for smaller meetings, subject to availability, as part of our DDR, or as a standalone offering. Please ask us about this option.
Please note that the restaurant space is not available for private bookings during trading hours Monday to Friday, as we run a popular, busy restaurant which is open to the public during this time. However, it is available for evenings during the week and at weekends.
Our restaurant lawn area and versatile outdoor seating make the perfect space for team-building events, BBQs, Classic British Picnics, summer parties. The sky’s the limit!
Why not combine the restaurant and lawn spaces for a bigger bash! Just imagine, a wonderful banquet, followed by drinks and entertainment, with your guests gently spilling out onto the lawn to enjoy a drink in the evening sun.
