I want to thank you and the staff at IoD for an absolutely superb job. Everything was perfect --the food, the service-- and the venue could not have been more beautiful. When we get pictures from the photographers, I will be sure to post them. It took a lot of time, emails, and long-distance planning, but I think we pulled off a dream wedding. I have heard nothing but raves from everyone who attended.
The IoD is in a fantastic building in the heart of the city. The downstairs restaurant produces some v nice food. The training rooms upstairs are v good, with their own barista and a great supply of fresh fruit and biscuits. There are also downstairs members meeting areas. Very nice place.
The room, the staircase leading to it, the views back towards the Mall and over the gardens above it and the efficiency of the venue all helped this be a most enjoyable day.
I have no idea what it cost but given the facilities available at the location, it must have been worth every penny!
I had the pleasure of planning a beautiful event at 116 Pall Mall in the winter. The team at the venue is full of experienced professionals that helped make the day easy, painless and enjoyable. They were flexible throughout the entire planning process of with the amazing room options onsite, the furniture selections and the time and attention they spent on the food and beverage details. I was really impressed with this secret gem in the heart of the city and all it has to offer! I look forward to planning more events here soon.
As part of our Christmas shopping experience my wife and I took lunch at the IOD.
It was quite simply delightful and thanks to Delyan, Francesca and Alain heralded in our Christmas spirit.
The food was good, the background music seasonally appropriate.
Thanks to the restaurant team for a most pleasant Christmas experience.
I wanted to thank you and the team at 116 Pall Mall for making our wedding a great and special event for us. I really appreciate your patience, flexibility and the last minute adaptations. The food and service was great, all went very smoothly and was very professionally supported. We could not have asked for more.
Once again we would like to appreciate all your hard work. Thank you so much for your great help. It was such a blessing for us to have IoD as our wedding reception venue. All the photos taken there come out so beautiful. We would highly recommend the place to those who look for an important occasion venue.
Took an old friend to lunch in the main Restaurant, in its recently new location. The Restaurant is now situated in a very big corner room, with great views across Pall Mall and busy London, through huge windows. Big pictures of historic sea battles and naval officers, from 200 years ago, all added to the overall setting.The service was, as usual, excellent and efficient. I much enjoyed my food and wine, with a very good choice.I will certainly be going again soon.
Glorious venue in the classic tradition. The stunning rooms with their chandeliers, massive portraits and other classic paintings make for a very dramatic evening. The main staircase is a spectacle too. Enjoyed a fantastic 3 course meal with great entertainment and service. Sheer elegance. Great spaces to utilise for events and nice views of the Mall.
The Restaurant is beautiful - high ceilings and natural light. It was refurbished in 2014.
It was not busy at all the day I visited for lunch. The staff were wonderfully attentive without being over-bearing in any way. The food was absolutely delicious and presented in a very attractive way. I would definitely take guests again for lunch at this restaurant.
