Bookings for the Garden are now open!

As per government guidelines, from April 12th we’re able to welcome members (+ up to 5 of their guests) back to the largest private garden in Soho – ours! This date remains dependent on the government confirming that step two of the roadmap has started.

To help us manage capacity, distancing and to keep members and staff safe, we’re asking that you book your visit in advance. Members can bring up to five guests each, but if you’re planning a more intimate first catch up with friends, we have some smaller tables too. Everything you need to know is included below.

Reservations must be made in the name of a current House of St Barnabas member.

Opening hours:

  • Monday: 12 noon – 8pm
  • Tuesday – Friday: 12 noon – 11pm
  • Weekends: closed
  • Food served everyday, 12 noon – 8pm

The system limits bookings to three hours, but we will always try to accommodate member requests for a longer booking. Please let us know after you have made your booking via [email protected]. We will confirm the updated booking with you.

Our recent refurbishment has increased the number of outdoor plug sockets. After you have made your booking, drop [email protected] a note to say you’ll like to be seated next to one.

Wet weather:
We have parasols which will provide some rain cover but not for every table. If we have to close due to bad weather we will notify everyone with an existing booking and post a message on our social media channels.

What we’re doing to keep Covid-secure:
Access to the Garden is via our usual Greek Street entrance. As you pass through the House’s one way system, you’ll need to keep wearing your mask; you’ll see staff wearing theirs too. We ask that members make ample use of the hand sanitiser that you’ll find at reception, and on the tables in the Garden. We’ll also be asking all members and their guests to check-in via the NHS Track & Trace app. Please expect to be reminded about these things when you arrive. Our enhanced cleaning regime continues with a focus on shared spaces and touchpoints. Toilets are located indoors on the ground floor.

Our capacity:
Across our 24 tables, we are able to COVID-securely seat up to 60 people at any one time. Government regulations allow for groups of up to six or two households.  We advise members to book tables in advance during the five-week period.

Food is available 12noon-8pm everyday. We’re launching a specially design outdoor menu from April 12th, we’ll post it here soon.

Bookings after 17th May:
In mid-April we will make bookings available from 17th May in line with step three of the government’s roadmap. Step three is due to allow indoor access to the House for members and their guests, and groups of up to 30 in the Garden. We’ll update members about this via the members’ newsletter, our social media channels and on the website.
