Private Hire


Perfect for Events

James Cochran EC3 offers a bright and airy interior decorated in a contemporary style. Perfectly suited to those looking for something up-to-date with a relaxed ambiance. Its straightforward layout that can be readily adapted to your seating plan. It can comfortably seat 60 and up to 75 if a walking buffet is preferred. This excludes the 16-seat bar area to the front of the venue that can accommodate additional standing guests.

The pared-back style also means that the space can be dressed to suit your needs or theme without proving time-consuming or requiring a complex set-up.

The professional kitchen can be used if you wish to bring in your own catering on a "dry hire" basis. But, of course, we are able to offer a fully catered and staffed event for you, either drawing on our existing menus or with a specially planned menu unique to your event. Whether a buffet-style with a focus on finger food right through to a seated multi-course tasting menu made with the finest ingredients, we are able to offer top value for quality at an affordable starting price point.

Events can sometimes include the hire of BYOC City, located below the restaurant, subject to availability. This can provide space in a unique—and different—setting for an additional 60 to 70 individuals.
