The Alhambra Room

Our breathtaking Alhambra Room is an exact copy of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, recreated by Mabel Walker-Munro as a Christmas present for her husband.

During their honeymoon, he had so admired the then ruined Alhambra that she was determined to recreate this as a smoking room for him. This was achieved using rare materials like the onyx pillars from Persia and the hand-cut wall tiles, and skilled coppersmiths of Moorish origin.

In the dome, beautiful stars in the Venetian glass form the Star of David, while below is an elegant bronze grille. Try and find the religious inscriptions on the beaten copper walls, or follow the story on the striking mosaic floor, which tells of how Caliph Harmoum Al Rashid of Baghdad rescued his twin daughters from the clutches of Ahnzar the Devil, who had turned them into flamingos.

Look up at the magnificent copper and bronze lantern, which has a comet whirling through space on the base, and six appendages showing how God created the world in six days, resting on the seventh. The brass inlaid doors to the room also tell this story.

Today the Alhambra Room is used as a show-stopping venue for private dining experiences, no matter what the occasion. Whether it be afternoon tea, Sunday lunch, a celebration lunch or dinner or a romantic proposal dinner. 

Maximum capacity for seated dining is 14 people. Minimum numbers of 10 guests apply. Quote ‘Alhambra Private Dining 2019’ when booking to receive a complimentary glass of bucks fizz for all guests attending your dining experience.
