The Livery Hall is the larger of our two function rooms, and the setting for the Worshipful Company of Bakers’ many Livery dinners and luncheons. The rich warm tones of Brazilian mahogany panelling combine with the vibrant red of our brand new suite of luxuriously comfortable dining chairs to create a sophisticated yet welcoming atmosphere to any dining experience or conference.
The Hall’s crowning glory, however, must be the Piper Windows, designed by painter, glazier and war artist John Piper. These three windows were specially commissioned to commemorate the three halls which previously occupied the site and were lost to the Great Fire of 1666, the Thames Street Fire of 1715, and the Blitz in 1940. Their contrasting palette of deep and brooding midnight blue lifted by sudden, vibrant oranges and reds, adds to the character of the space, and provides a splash of brilliant colours on sunny days.
There is also a minstrel’s gallery, equipped with a baby grand piano, which overlooks the Livery Hall, should you wish for some musical accompaniment for your event. The room is also equipped with a sound system and an induction loop for those with impaired hearing.
