The most distinguished of The Savoy’s original private dining rooms, Pinafore boasts a remarkable early example of an art deco interior. With its striking view across Embankment Gardens towards the River Thames, unique interior, and distinctive history, Pinafore offers the most memorable of locations for any event, personal or corporate, business or pleasure. It can be combined with the adjacent private room, Princess Ida & Patience, via a connecting door, if more space is required.
Many private rooms in London have a history behind them and our magnificent Pinafore room is no exception. Named after the fifth Savoy Opera, “H.M.S. Pinafore”, this room was entirely redesigned by theatre designer Basil Ionides in 1926. Pinafore has been an especially popular location for regimental dinners and dining clubs, and is well-known as the home of ‘The Other Club’, a private dining club which meets regularly while Parliament is in session. The Other Club was founded by Lord Birkenhead and Sir Winston Churchill in 1910 for distinguished figures from the world of politics, arts and the media. The Other Club has been meeting in Pinafore since the first dinner in 1911.
