Colonel Saab’s team of culinary experts would like to welcome you to eat in one of their four dining areas; the ground floor restaurant, the main arena, the mezzanine and their two private dining rooms. 

Colonel Saab is situated in the Grade II listed Holborn Town Hall building, which first opened as a public library in 1894. Today, apart from a few original features the new exotic design and decor of the restaurant compliments the old building with warm colours, brass and wood features and a stunning collection of chandeliers which have been handcrafted and shipped over from India. 

In addition to the restaurant and bar, we have two tastefully designed private dining rooms which accommodate up to 60 people standing or 30 for a seated dinner, creating the ideal setting for any corporate dining or celebratory event. 

The rooms feature large windows allowing for plenty of natural daylight and complimenting all the beautiful artworks adorning the shelves and walls. The picturesque setting allows for parties to hire either one or combine both dining rooms to create a larger space. Included in your hire are the stunning large oval wooden tables for up to 15 guests each. These can be cleared for standing receptions and replaced with high poseur tables. 

Complimentary Wi-Fi and speakers for background music are included, and guests are welcome to bring in a DJ upon request. 

Having opened during the unprecedented times of the pandemic the restaurant has very quickly learnt how to accommodate all kinds of changing situations. With 5-star service and friendly team members, Colonel Saab welcomes most event types and the team takes great pleasure in giving guests a tour and showcasing the stories and artefacts at Colonel Saab. 

Whether you’re celebrating something special with friends and family or you’d like to hold an important business meeting or product launch, we welcome intimate smaller or larger groups of people to enjoy the privacy of one of our stunning two private dining rooms. 

#DidYouKnow that the private dining room features walls adorned with 17th and 18th century Tanjore paintings and hand woven Persian silk carpets and precious decanters and crockery from the palace of the Maharaja of Faridkot shimmering in the cabinets.
