Ideally situated within the Tunsgate Quarter shopping centre on the bustling Guildford High Street, our private dining room is located on the first floor of the brasserie. The Looking Glass Room at The Ivy Castle View accommodates 30 guests either on one long table or across three round tables of ten, or 70 guests for a standing reception.
The walls of The Looking Glass Room are adorned with colourful vintage prints and locally referenced artwork inspired by Guildford’s historic heritage, the Surrey landscape, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and the golden sands of the ancient River Whey. The Art Deco-style, polished dark oak parquet floor and gilded iron pendant lighting add a touch of glamour to the space. In addition, The Looking Glass Room features a beautiful silk clad and pale orange onyx bar, decorated with antique brass rod detailing, as well as its own private covered terrace, complete with beautiful views across Guildford Castle, making the room suitable for both seated and standing receptions.
With a selection of menus available, all specially created by our Executive Chef, Sean Burbidge, our private dining room is equally suited to private parties, wedding celebrations and family gatherings as it is for corporate breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and Christmas parties.
