Right in the middle of luxurious top end touristy Mayfair this pub offers drinks and food at normal prices. Clean. Good service. Air conditioned. Just round the corner to Green Park Station. Would recommend if you are in the Piccadilly area or staying nearby

We dropped into the Clarence on an incredibly busy Saturday lunchtime. The pub was a haven of peace and tranquility, especially the lovely upstairs dining room. Offering typical Nicholson pub fare, the fish and chips were as good as ever. The drinks were good too....More

Great place to take friends. Service is brilliant and the food excellent too. Been 8 times in the last 2 months. Only complaint would be the soup of the day is always the same Butternut squash! Would love the chef to create something else.More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even

I think you need to contact them directly to have thus question answered but possibly your group is too big for a Saturday evening - as I said though you will need to e nail or phone them I would think.
