Dining at the NLC

The National Liberal Club has some of the finest dining and socialising spaces in London. Members and their guests can enjoy a drink or meal in spectacular surroundings at relatively modest prices. Our dedicated team of chefs are passionate about delivering food of the highest quality, sourcing premium seasonal and sustainable produce from a roster of carefully selected UK suppliers.

Please note: Regulations from April 12 will mean that only table service outdoors on the Terrace can be provided. Members can meet seated in groups of up to six people from multiple households, or any number from two households. In order to help ensure that everyone has a table, we strongly encourage you to book in advance. This also applies if you are just coming for drinks. Book online via the members’ area or email dining@nlc.org.uk.

The Bar & Terrace

The Club’s bar offers competitively priced cocktails, a variety of wine by the glass as well as all the usual drinks and refreshments, plus bar food and snacks. Bar Manager Viktor will prepare cocktails to order, while his knowledgeable and friendly team provide first-class service whatever your requirements. In the summer, you can relax and enjoy the Club’s celebrated Terrace overlooking the Thames, and be served Afternoon Tea, drinks, sandwiches or bar meals more or less round the clock.

Due to current restrictions only people from a single household or support bubble may be seated together indoors. Alcohol may only be served to members and guests with a table meal ordered from the bar food menu.

Wine of the month

The NLC wine of the month is selected by the NLC Wine Committee. Comprising a group of wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs, all wines are carefully chosen by the committee for the bar and dining room and a perfect pick is taken each month for members and guests alike to enjoy.
