The Wash House Café

Abbey Centre - 077 Wash House Cafe 4

Capacity: 100 (reception),  50-70 (dining)
Spacious ground-floor café with a small balcony.

Hiring The Wash House Café enables us to offer our older members subsidised meals and hot drinks.

For large meetings, you can hire the Wash House Café. The café is on the ground floor, with doors opening onto a small balcony. The higher daytime hire fee reflects our cost in closing the café to regular customers. For larger meetings you can hire the café and annexe as one extra-large meeting space.

The Wash House Café and Annexe are named in honour of St Margaret and St John the Evangelist’s Baths, Westminster's first public baths and wash house, which were based in our building at 34 Great Smith Street.
