The In & Out
The club, of which the Duke of Edinburgh is President, was established in 1862 after some naval officers realised the need for a home-from-home. Staying faithful to its roots, the In & Out is warm and welcoming – which we fully reflect in our catering offer.
We look after the catering in the two members' bars, the fine dining restaurant and the brasserie. We believe in the importance of truly delicious food when it comes to meaningful occasions; club members enjoy a Waterloo dinner (an annual event commemorating the Battle of Waterloo), while our mince pies and mulled wine add to the festivities at their Christmas carols in St James's Square. Our food further complements the staterooms for hire.
On our suggestion, the club has become licensed for weddings and is a popular venue choice for many couples, meaning that it’s been able to further extend its warm welcome to an even wider clientele.
For 30 years, the building was home to Lady Nancy Astor, the first woman to sit in Parliament. Now you can capture the buzz of politics with an elegant drinks reception in the Astor Room, formerly her bedroom. Decorated to its original splendour, it has access to a balcony overlooking the Courtyard for balmy summer evenings and a cosy open fire for winter days.
