Crew Room

 

The Crew Room & Private Hire

The Crew Room seats up to 14 guests on two large adjoining tables, with a further two tables of two as it is.  It can be used for group dining, or for everyday use (one table of 8, one table of 6 and two tables of 2).  Exclusive use of this room up to a maximum of 24 guests can be arranged with no hire fee, subject to availability and numbers.

Numbers over this require the private hire of the restaurant for exclusive use, either on a half-day or full-day basis.

Group Reservations

Please note that for group bookings of 8 people or more we require credit card details at the time of booking. Should you need to cancel, we just ask that cancellations are received at least 48 hours prior to your booking. Any cancellations later than 48 hrs or no-shows will be charged £20 per person on the card details provided at the time of booking.

Group bookings of 13 people or more also require a choice of one of the following dining options:

1. A La Carte Menu – a pre-order of food choices is required – received a minimum of four days in advance of the reservation so the kitchen can prepare and order accordingly.

2. Chefs’ Sharing Menu (of varying prices from £45-£95pp) – no pre-order required. A selection of dishes (shared starter, shared main & choice of three individual desserts) chosen on the day by our chefs and presented down the middle of the table to share. This can be a wonderful way to experience The Little Gloster as everyone gets to try a little something of everything. The sharing menus change with the seasons and availability of local produce. (Minimum 12 guests).

Cancellations of tables choosing the Chefs’ Sharing Menu (surf and turf or seafood options) require five days notice, otherwise £45 will be charged per person in the card details provided.

Please note that the table reserved for you will only accommodate the number of guests specified at the time of booking. Any increase to numbers must be advised in advance, as it may not always be possible to accommodate your request unfortunately.
