Bars & Dining

Members and their guests enjoy first class British cuisine from the club’s kitchens prepared by our award winning head chef, Mark Leach and his brigade. Mark’s extensive repertoire featuring the finest seasonal produce is offered in various menus in the dining room, drawing rooms and function rooms of the clubhouse.  Sample menus are shown in the following references to the Dining Room, East India Room and Waterloo Room, for private functions please see the Banqueting tab of the website.

Dining Room

In the club’s impressive Dining Room, Chef presents an a la carte menu, daily changing table d’hôte menu, lunchtime favourites, wonderful desserts and cheeses.

To accompany great cooking is a superb range of wines. The wine sub-committee and our head sommelier take great care to select fabulous wines, much of which is brought en primeur and arrives direct from the vineyard to our cellars.

The current wine list can be accessed using the below link. If you see a premium bottle of wine that you would like decanted for your table please email diningroom@eastindiaclub.com for Peter, Maitre d’, to pass on to Eric our head sommelier.

The club table in the Dining Room ensures no member need dine alone and is able to engage in lively conversation with fellow members, be they international travellers, younger members, businessmen or retired.

Combine all of the above with skilled, friendly and attentive service under the direction of maitre d’, Petar Vasilev and there is little wonder why the club’s dining has an enviable reputation in clubland.

Waterloo Room, Smoking Room and East India Room

The Waterloo Room is a charming room overlooking the gardens, so named because of the past history of No.16 when the Honorable Major Henry Percy delivered the Duke of Wellingtons dispatch announcing victory at Waterloo.

The Smoking Room with it’s array of comfortable chesterfield furniture and overseen by fine portraits of Napier, Churchill & Monty is where members can play a game of chess,  backgammon, monopoly or cluedo.

The East India Room on the ground floor has impressive portraits of Queen Victoria and the King of Oudh and is an interesting room as it retains the proportions of the original house.  Members and their guests can use this room without jacket and tie and also use electronic devices on silent.

American Bar

Bomb damaged in the 1940s allied officers encouraged the club to rebuild in the half timbered style that was so cherished in pubs across the land. This busy bar maintains the traditional feel of a local pub with its bar stools and snug, soda syphons and twiglets, and the cheapest pint of beer in any London club.  A  great place to meet and socialise with fellow members.

Monday to Friday noon – 10pm
Saturday & Sunday Closed
