We're delighted that following the further lifting of restrictions, lunch in Middle Temple Hall has reopened.

Lunch is served most weekdays (Monday-Friday) in the stunning environment of the Hall. Members of the Inns of Courts and their guests can enjoy the extensive lunch menu available between 12:00 and 14:00.

Hall Visitors

If you are not a member of one of the Inns, but would like to lunch with us in the Hall, please pre-book via the events team, either by phone, 020 7427 4820 or email. A Hall lunch booking can also be preceded by a tour of the Middle Temple buildings and grounds, led by one of our expert guides. If you would like to take advantage of this combined experience for your group, please mention it when booking, and the events team will arrange suitable times and dates.

Dress Code

Lunch is an informal meal and the dining regulations do not apply. Members should bear in mind, however, that Hall is the luncheon room of a professional body. The dress code is business suit, court dress or smart casual dress. Jeans may be worn if both clean and smart. We do not permit guests wearing inappropriate/ripped/dirty clothing. Shorts are not permitted at any time. Middle Temple reserves the right to refuse entrance to the Hall, without refund, if guests do not follow the dress code accordingly.


Tours are subject to availability and must be pre-booked through the Events Department on 020 7427 4820. A minimum number of 10 people are required for a tour which costs £12.00 per person. Tours last approximately 45 minutes.


Our lunchtime offerings include an extensive cold table, a selection of hot dishes, a carvery and a dish of the day cooked to order. Prepared by our skilled catering team and using the very best, fresh ingredients our lunches are designed to delight your taste buds and match the impressive setting of the Hall itself.
