Princess Ida & Patience Room
Looking across Embankment Gardens towards the River Thames and with an excellent view of the iconic Westminster Bridge, this gracious Edwardian-style private dining room in London can be configured in a variety of layouts, making it ideally suited for small to medium sized lunches or receptions, a cocktail party or private afternoon tea, and formal or informal dining occasions. Princess Ida & Patience can be combined with the adjacent private room Pinafore, via a connecting door, if greater floorspace is necessary.
Named after the eighth and sixth Savoy Operas, Princess Ida & Patience started life as two of the original private rooms when The Savoy opened in 1889, but the dividing wall was removed in 1935. After several decades of modern redecoration, a major restoration in the late 1990s drew inspiration from original archive photographs of both rooms dated 1906, and the room now reflects its delightful Edwardian heritage.
