Livery Halls, by dining capacity

The list below is of the livery companies who have their own Hall, organised by size of dining capacity. (the number of places is also affected by choice of table arrangement, eg round tables or sprigs). 

Most, but not all, are available for hire. Most, but not all, have their own, or tied, caterers.

A note concerning confusion twixt hall names and their livery companies:

Armourers' Hall is the home of the Armourers & Brasiers Company. ie NOT Armourers & Brasiers Hall. Similarly:

Painters' Hall is the home of Painter-Stainers’ Company, and

Watermen’s Hall is the home of the Watermen & Lightermen's Company.

Conversely, Barber-Surgeons’ Hall is the home of the Barbers’ Company. ie not the Barber-Surgeons’ Company.

The Farmers’ Company and the Fletchers’ Company share and jointly own Farmers & Fletchers Hall.

HQS Wellington is the home of the Master Mariners Company.

The Glaziers’ Company share ownership of their hall with the Launderers’ and Scientific Instrument Makers’ Companies. However, only these two liveries refer to the hall by their own name.

And finally, Chartered Accountants’ Hall and Insurers’ Hall are not the halls of the eponymous  livery companies (but of the professional institutes), though to an extent do base themselves there or have some of their meetings therein. 2019: Insurers’ Hall now closed.
