Searcys is the brainchild of one man: John Searcy. A creative and culinary force of nature, John began his illustrious career as the confectioner for the Duke of Northumberland before pushing out on his own and taking his talents to London where he founded Searcys in 1847. Searcys soon became a hit amongst the capital’s high society gaining a reputation as the go-to events company for exceptional quality.

Today, Searcys is in residence at unique and historical venues across the UK including Blenheim Palace, The Pump Room at the Roman Baths, The Gherkin, and St Pancras International. Events are still central to what the brand does, but Searcys is also famed for its destination restaurants, afternoon teas and Champagne bars. Its 15 plus venues across the UK serve fresh, seasonal dishes that focus on sustainability and local produce alongside extensive Champagne and wine lists, paired with world-class service.

Bars and restaurants: St Pancras Brasserie and Champagne Bar, Helix restaurant at the Gherkin, Osteria and Bonfire at the Barbican, The Pump Room in Bath, The Orangery at Blenheim Palace.

Venues:  London: 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, 11 Cavendish Square, 30 Euston Square, The Royal Institution, the Barbican, The HAC, National Army Museum Vintners’ Hall. Out of London: Blenheim Palace, One Moorgate Place, The Roman Baths.

In addition to events and restaurants, Searcys has its own Brut and Rosé champagne cuvées - a tradition started by John himself in 1893.  Discover more at

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
