CH&CO, in partnership with the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, has launched a new café at the venue and visitor attraction which can also be used as an event space.

The Painted Hall Café is part of a two-year conservation project, part funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, that has restored the Painted Hall and its Undercroft.

Andrew Bapniah, operations director for CH&CO said: “We’re very excited to be working with the Old Royal Naval College to launch the Painted Hall Café to its visitors and to the local Greenwich community.

“The Painted Hall Undercroft is a fantastic location for the café, and as part of the incredible conservation project the space has been restored and designed in way that celebrates its history and will make customers feel that they are enjoying a drink and a bite to eat somewhere very special.

“The work in the Painted Hall is phenomenal. The venue is exquisite, and the CH&CO Events team looks forward to creating memorable events for clients in this unique and stunning space.”

Excavations uncovered the remains of two service rooms from the old Friary buildings, which formed part of Henry VIII’s Greenwich Palace. The lower room is a cellar and features ‘unusual niches’ thought to be ‘bee boles’ where bee hives were kept during the winter months to protect hibernating bee colonies.

Open from 10am-4.30pm, daily, to both visitors to the Painted Hall and the general public, the fresh, seasonal menu offers a selection of breakfast items, lunches, hot and cold beverages and cakes.

The menu features a mix of light bites, family favourites and ‘classics with a modern twist’.

Also available for evening hire, the Painted Hall offers a venue for a variety of events, including corporate dinners and receptions gala dinners, launch parties and fashion shows, special occasions and celebrations, and weddings.
