The Court Room is the meeting place of the Court of the Worshipful Company of Bakers. In times past, this historic body oversaw the baking trade in the City, and punished transgressors. The Master Baker, his Wardens and Assistants still meet here formally, four times a year, to plot the direction of the Company and administer its charitable and other functions.
The Court Room is full of character, boasting a Master’s dais, an electric organ, and a small selection of art-works donated to the Company over the years, including a full-length portrait of Sir Paul Newall, the last Baker to be Lord Mayor. It is a mid-sized function room, equally well-suited to dining, meetings and receptions.
