Private Dining in The City of London

Welcome to The Don’s Private Dining Rooms, The City of London’s most charming and characterful venues for private events be they: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Champagne and Canapé Parties, Business Meetings, Corporate Dinners or Private Celebrations.

 

The Don Restaurant and its younger sibling next door, The Sign of the Don, offer a unique private dining experience in the City’s most attractively restored historic private dining rooms where you can enjoy fine food, superb wines and an unrivalled level of warm, friendly, professional service. Whether you are a table of ten, or a table of fifty we have a room for you.

We can host events for 12 to 150 people seven days a week and we are justly proud of our experienced and personable Private Events Team who will help you choose which of our private or semi-private rooms will provide the right setting for your event, whether it is a breakfast lunch, dinner or dinner party.

In 1993 we planted a vineyard in Hawkes Bay, on the east coast of the North Island, in partnership with top New Zealand Winemaker John Hancock, Situated on the stony soils of the Gimblett Gravels region, new Zealand’s first “appellation”. Trinity Hill is now one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed wineries, winning as many awards for its red wines as for its whites.

Our dinner menus start at £34.50 and our excellent award-winning house wines from Trinity Hill start from £22.00.

Our Events team would be delighted to show you our private dining rooms and discuss your specific requirements.
