An independent and traditional pub specialising in award winning craft beer, a broad range of wines and artisan food from local producers.

The Hour Glass has been open since the 1930’s, and has become one of Chelsea’s most unique hidden gems.

Our focus is on bringing premium food and drink to an intimate and comfortable setting.

The private dining room at The Hour Glass

Our unique private dining room is one of Chelsea’s hidden gems and just a stone’s throw from South Kensington tube. The room accommodates up to 25 seated guests or 40+ guests for standing drinks receptions.

The private dining room can cater for any event, during all seasons. Whether it’s a wedding, christening, birthday, corporate function, or just a good old-fashioned party, we’ve got it covered. The boutique room can be set up for a refined dining (25person) experience or left in a comfortable lounge setting for the more informal event (40 standing). The room also has Wifi, a large media screen and independent music system with iPod docking.

We work closely with the award winning Harviestoun Brewery to deliver an incredible selection of premium craft beers. The master brewer makes the frequent trip down from Scotland to ensure the cask ales are properly conditioned and the lager tastes exactly as it was intended.

Our extensive wine list curated by local Chelsea specialists Haynes Hanson and Clark. They help us make sure we have the best quality and most interesting wines on offer.

We work with premium local suppliers, like Chelsea’s renowned Jago butcher to bring you the best ingredients possible. Our menus are flexible and we can easily accommodate more casual events with quality buffets as well as a more refined menu for seated dinners.

If you have any specific requirements that aren’t on our menu, our chefs would love to accommodate you to make the event extra special.

Please note that – in accordance with UK government guidelines – restrictions may apply to the socially distanced number of guests allowed in private dining rooms during the Covid-19 pandemic. As this may be subject to change please contact the venue via telephone or email for up-to-date information regarding private dining room capacity restrictions.
