The room hire for use of the Crypt goes directly to St. Etheldreda’s Church. Catering is served by the talented restaurant team at Bleeding Heart, and whilst we may not promise you a three day feast with Swans stuffed with larks stuffed with Sparrows – we can offer you a wonderful selection of seasonal dishes tailored by our Exec Chef Julian Marshall.

If your numbers are on the lower end, you may find the Bleeding Heart Restaurant more suitable, with arrival drinks hosted in the Terrace Room opening out onto the cobbled yard.

We offer bespoke catering packages or leave you to be flexible with menus from £45 per person.

Testimonials

Fantastic Wedding venue. The food was outstanding, even though they catered for so many. Great Gothic ambience. Would recommend.

Din B

I just held my wedding reception here (October 2019) and can honestly say it was fantastic. The room is gorgeous, the catering staff very professional and attentive. We predominantly worked with a gentleman called Benoit for our evening who was brilliant...

Thomas P

Wonderful Wedding Breakfast. The food was absolutely excellent, as was the service. I really recommend for such an occasion.

Steve S

Invited to a wedding reception at this venue which definitely has the wow factor, it is a stunning place and not morbid at all. Canapes served were delicious and the lighting/candles/decorations just right.

J&J B

As if being transported to the past hundred of years ago surrounded by stone walls. Amazing venue.

Helen .

Very well organised banquet catering. Very nice seasonal food, good wines and all served efficiently and unobtrusively. Extremely impressed.

Martin D

We enjoyed a terrific celebratory dinner for 100 guests in The Crypt and the compliments are still pouring in commenting on the amazing venue, delicious food and impeccable service. Aurora was absolutely fantastic at every stage of the planning process...

Mary J

A year ago today I was a newly married man and walked through the entrance of the Crypt and just froze – I was totally stunned and lost for words. To this day I still cannot find the words to describe the just how beautiful and magical it was to see ...

Ray P

What a beautiful venue and wedding you gave us. We had 122 very happy guests. The food, drinks and service - all absolutely top class. We don’t believe anywhere else in London could have outshone The Crypt and Bleeding Heart for our wedding. We are so...

Noreen B

Deanne G

Beautiful room, great food and drink.

Ken Z

Great unusual place for an event. Very historic, 10th century.

Colin M

We were served with some very good food in this historic location. All staff very well drilled. Good atmosphere.

Andy K

Lovely place for a wedding reception.

Josie J

Simply amazing to sit in the same place where Henry 8th partied.

Peter S

The first thing I noticed was how beautiful it was. It is a unique venue. The food service was seamless and the food utterly delicious. It is large enough for 100 plus people but also small enough to feel intimate. A perfect evening.

Mel S

The holy trinity for dining. Unexpected delight! Great service. Amazing food. Very strong wine list.

Stephen A

Great place for a wedding. Wonderful service.

Trish T

Gorgeous venue. Had my wedding here, the food was superb. It's a really atmospheric place, magical.

Andrew A

Great venue for events - a talking point of its own right.

Selwyn F

Amazing venue, amazing catering, very professional staff, thoroughly enjoyed the entire event.

Jennifer H

We held our wedding reception at the crypt under St Etheldreda's church in Farringdon in October and could not have dreamed of a more beautiful and perfect wedding for us. The atmosphere in the crypt is truly magical when decorated with flowers and candles...

Sophie S

Really cool location. Well organised with good food and a great atmosphere.

Thomas I

The atmosphere in the place is truly awesome. The food was excellent. It is a really neat place.

Nella N

Brilliant for a private function. Excellent service, excellent food and wine - would recommend.

Lindy L

Lasting impressions: Beautiful venue, fantastic food, superb champagne. It was everything you would expect. The food was exquisite, the champagne was both wonderful and plentiful and the venue was lovely. One of the people on our table told us that...
