Hall Lunch

The Inner Temple Hall Lunch is a membership benefit open to members of the four Inns, Inns’ staff, chambers, chambers’ staff, and their guests. We take pride in providing a friendly and relaxed environment in this historic environment where members and their guests can enjoy good food and good company.



Our lunch service operates from Monday to Friday, between 12.30pm and 2.00pm, offering a varied selection of dishes to cater for diverse tastes.



Our traditional roasts with all the trimmings are available five days per week, with other hot savoury options including vegetarian and vegan dishes. Members can enjoy our popular Thursday ‘Curry Day’ or experience our famous ‘Chip Shop Friday’. A wide range of options are available from our fresh salad counter, and for those on the go, hot or cold dishes may be taken away. Our famous crème brûlée can be found at the dessert counter.

Sparkling and still filtered water is freely available for all guests. For other refreshments like tea, soft drinks, and wine, please ask a waiter or visit the drinks station. Nespresso coffee is conveniently self-served from our coffee machine.

As far as possible, we aim to accommodate allergens and other dietary requirements on the day. Please speak to a member of the team on arrival. Advance notice of specific requirements may also be sent to the Catering Office .
