For this Autumn and Winter, we will be offering wonderful private dining experiences here at Blue Door Barns.
Bookable for guests staying at Blue Door Barns or for local friends and businesses looking for a bespoke dining experience in our beautiful home. Available for groups of 8-16 people, our private dining experiences will take place in the Drawing Room of the main country house Cobbe Place, which was one owned by Quentin Bell and still has a real sense of Bloomsbury history. Whatever your reason to celebrate – special birthday, micro wedding, Xmas, friends reunion, office party – let us make it truly special.
Choose from three types of menus including The Dinner Party, The Supper Party and The Xmas Party although if there’s something in particular you’d really love, then we can accommodate most needs. We can also ensure all dietary requirements are met.
