 Did you know? 

The Strangers’ Restaurant was originally designed as a meeting place where members of Parliament would entertain their guests, including visiting dignitaries, consulate representatives and members of the Royal family. Historically, these guests were referred to as ’strangers’, thus creating the saying ‘where strangers become friends’.

Today, we invite you and your guests to continue this tradition and make new friends.

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met”.
William Butler Yeats – Irish poet
