Welcome to The Assembly House

The Assembly House is one of the city’s most prestigious addresses, with an enthusiastic, professional team, a confident style and a positive attitude. Our aim is to restore this stunning building to its former glories and to honour its illustrious past, which includes visits from Franz Liszt, Niccolo Paganini, Madame Tussaud and the famous Noverre dance family.

Recent refurbishment of the cloakrooms, kitchen and galleries is an indication of the new direction of the House. We have injected life into the Grand Hall with luxurious leather arm chairs, creating the ideal meeting place for a freshly-brewed cup of coffee and an indulgent slice of home-made cake. The restaurant boasts a fabulous menu, serving delicious breakfast dishes (from 10am to midday), signature salads, more-ish sandwiches and toasts as well as firm favourites such as sausages and mash. And don’t forget our popular afternoon tea, served on traditional tiered cake stands.

And the function rooms are stunning! There can be no more beautiful room in the city than The Music Room with its incredible chandeliers and minstrels’ gallery, making the perfect backdrop for a wedding. And with six sensational rooms from which to choose, including two ballrooms, we can cater for all manner of occasions, from conferences, product launches and exhibitions to private dining.
