Surrounded on all sides by a turn of the century red brick frieze, depicting scenes from Shakespeare’s Sylvan plays, guests will find Courtyard at 51 a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of central London. This secluded, hidden gem complete with cherub ordained fountain (allegedly a gift from Queen Victoria), is an ideal spot for a business lunch, a quiet retreat with friends or an early evening cocktail.

The rest of the year the Courtyard is available for morning coffee, afternoon tea and light meals from the Hamptons Bar menu. The Courtyard at 51 is also available for private events and weddings.
