The Bridgewater


The Bridgewater is our largest function room and features a bar, restaurant with dining space and an adjoining private reading room.

In the mornings, our Bridgewater suite offers members a welcome alternative to the bustling banality of the high street coffee chain; the room’s charming classical features and generous open space have inspired many a thoughtful unhurried hour.


Members and guests can enjoy a superb selection of fine wines, beers and spirits at the bar and an excellent selection of fine food from our À la Carte and Daily Special menus throughout the day.

Bridgewater’s high windows take full advantage of the city’s daylight while affording a clear view of its vibrant King Street district.
