The Commander Porterhouse and Oyster Bar has a variety of function rooms available for private dining, business meetings, small corporate functions and celebrations. Unusually for such a trendy and stylish restaurant venue, The Commander can accommodate families in the best way possible – there’s a crèche on site that can allow the grown ups to enjoy an event while the kids have the time of their life surrounded by toys, books and experienced child minders. The crèche is open to customers on Saturday and Sunday from noon until 5pm, but Function Fixers can also arrange for it to be opened for use at other times.
The Hereford room is perfect for a private dinner for up to 20 people with family, friends or clients. With plenty of natural light and a warm ambience after dark, this formal dining room has all of the exclusivity of a private club and also boasts a rare feature – its own private balcony. Doubling up as an efficient boardroom, this room is equipped with a plasma screen WiFi, DVD player, Dolby 5.1, and is MP3 enabled.
The Gallery’s open space makes it versatile enough for art exhibitions, performance rehearsals, product launches, cinematic presentations, lectures, children’s parties and wedding receptions. With enough space for 100 people standing, and a neutral décor of white walls and a wooden floor, this blank canvas space also has an HD projector, Dolby 7.1, is MP3 enabled, has WiFi and a DVD player.
Providing an ideal breakout space and available to hire in conjunction with The Gallery is The Library, which serves as a private office room and includes a plasma screen, WiFi, DVD player and is MP3 enabled.
If you’d like an activity for team building or as a fun evening out with friends, The Commander Bar’s wine lounge and tasting room, The Vignette, boasts chic interiors and a tasting table for up to 12 people. There are over 100 kinds of wine to choose from, and the venue also sells its wines at retail price – so you can give your guests a bottle of their new favorite tipple as a souvenir of the day.
As well as a delicious and interesting selection of Oysters, this restaurant also serves a wonderful menu of seafood-orientated dishes. Paellas, pastas, salads and bakes are the staple themes here, but there’s also more than enough to keep the kids happy. The fish fingers are enormous, the chips are crunchy, and you can hand it to them completely guilt-free in the knowledge that all the ingredients are organic and responsibly sourced. The prices are family friendly too, and The Commander is expert at hosting kids’ parties, but if you’d like something a little more upmarket you have a tempting list of canapés and champagnes to choose from.
