Snug Area

The interior having been untouched since the 1920’s is a hidden neo-classical jewel and has been transformed into a unique space commended by English Heritage. The interior design and branding was developed to refer to the rich history of the building and particularly focuses on a phrase associated with the Freemasons: Momento Mori, which is often interpreted as ‘remember you must die’. Our Snug area is available for table reservation and also private hire with capacity up to 70 people.
