As a private Members' Club we would like to remind Members that photography and posting to social media should be discreet and should not involve or feature other Members and their guests inside the Club.
As a reminder, it is an infringement of the rules to approach, comment on, or try to document, the presence of other Members (recognisable or otherwise) and their guests in the Club.
Photography for press and commercial purposes is not permitted in the Club, without prior agreement with the Club's management. On occasion, at special events, Annabel's will arrange professional in-house photographers to attend.
- Selfies in the Ladies' Powder Room
- selfies should be discreet and should not involve or feature other Members and their guests.
- Discreet photography of your own party is permitted.
- Roaming photography
- please avoid obstruction of other Members and Staff.
- Blocking the staircase in order to achieve the perfect insta-post is frowned upon.

We would like to remind Members that smoking is only permitted in the designated Smoking Areas in the Club - The External Snugs and The Terrace, as well as The Humidor for those who prefer to smoke cigars. Please note that Annabel’s is an IQOS friendly Club and IQOS heated tobacco devices as well as HEETS may be purchased and smoked in all Bars located within the Club – just ask a member of the team for details.
Dogs are welcome throughout the ground floor everyday until 6pm. In the Garden, dogs are encouraged to take advantage of the underfloor heating...and not sit on the furniture. Dogs may order off-menu if they so wish!
Members are welcome to bring three guests to the Club without a reservation. Members wishing to entertain more than three guests should make a reservation to dine at the Club, additional guests will not be able to enter without prior approval.
Members are responsible for their guests at all times and guests cannot remain in the Club without the Member present.
Members are kindly reminded that all bills must be settled on the day and cannot be signed to your Membership account.

The Mexican and Elephant Room may be used as a work area during the day until 6pm. Members are permitted to use their phones and laptops in these areas during these times.
Members may also use their laptops and phones in the Sunken Bar in The Garden from 9am - 3pm, Monday - Friday.

THE RULE BOOK
We would like to thank all those who recently completed our Member Survey. We are listening and have taken on board your valuable comments and feedback. We have already started to make changes, detailed below, and will continue to make further positive changes in the near future.
Your Club is constantly evolving, and we are keen that you are part of the journey, so please do continue to send us your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DINING IN THE CLUB
We are working with our talented team of Chefs to make exciting changes to our menus including more variety and menu changes every six weeks. In The Garden, we have already implemented a new menu, including seasonal pastas, weekly salad specials and Plats du Jour.
THE GARDEN - out of dining hours
To ensure you get the most out of The Club during the day, Members are now welcome to use The Garden for coffee and drinks outside dining hours.
SET SHARING MENU
We will be introducing a new Set Sharing Menu in The Garden, similar to that which is already available in The Mexican and The Nightclub, creating a simpler way for you to enjoy dining in groups in The Club.
GROUP DINING IN THE GARDEN
In response to increased demand for group dining, only parties of 13 or more dining in The Garden (previously parties of 8 or more) will be invited to order from the reduced A La Carte or Set Menu.
WINE BUFF'S WINE LIST
We have been working hard for all you wine lovers, and will soon be launching a new Wine Buff's Wine List - an exceptional selection of world class wines at outstanding prices. Including Chateau Lynch Bages 96 (93 points) at £145 (previously £790) and Chateau Lynch Bages 2009 (98 points) at £140 (previously £650).
MUSIC VOLUME IN THE CLUB
To ensure you can always engage in conversation over dinner, we have reduced the music volume level in all restaurants and it will not increase until later in the evening, unless the atmosphere in The Club requires it.
THE BUDDHA RESTAURANT
We are delighted to announce the iconic Annabel's Buddha is back! Our Buddha will feature in a new restaurant opening in The Club soon.
More details to follow.
MEMBER WINE CELLARS
Since before we even opened you have been asking for wine storage. We are thrilled to announce that we now have an extensive five floor mews house for the storage of your favourite vintages and tipples.
Further information to follow.
This Spring, we will be introducing Cigar Keeps. Please get in touch if you would like further information about the Keeps.
LOOS IN THE MEWS
We have heard from many of you that the lavatories in the main house are too far to travel from the Smoking Terrace and therefore this Summer we will be adding new loos to the mews!
WORKING IN THE CLUB
The Elephant Room is now available as a work Area for you to use during the day, from Monday - Saturday, 9am - 6pm. Tea, Coffee, Juices and Cocktails are available to order, as well as food throughout the day.
