  • The Army & Navy Club, affectionately known as The Rag, is a Club originally founded for former and serving officers of the British and Commonwealth Armed Services, and their immediate relatives.One of Londons hidden gems, The Rag exudes character and charm, offering an unforgettable experience for your special occasion.

    The Club has been situated in St Jamess since 1837 and on the present site since 1851. The picture above represents the Club in 1890, 70+ years before its reconstruction. With the building becoming evermore uneconomical, it consequently went through a total re-build in 1962. As a result, the Club combines the ambience of tradition and modern facilities without pretentiousness. The Clubhouse offers members, guests and event organisers the ultimate homely feel, with a friendly yet highly professional staff who ensure that every event runs with efficiency and style.The Clubs distinguished forebears Lieutenant General Sir Edward Barnes, the first President who, as Adjutant General, fought, sword in hand, at the Battle of Waterloo, and Admiral Sir Philip Durham, one of Nelsons Band of Brothers who commanded HMS Defiance at the Battle of Trafalgar.

    Our Club menus are sourced using British produce wherever possible, from the very best of suppliers. Fish is delivered daily from Brixham in Devon, game comes from the Denham Estate in Suffolk, and Aberdeen Angus beef from Millers of Speyside. Fruit and vegetables, brought from Covent Garden, are again sourced as locally as possible.

    The Army and Navy Club endeavours to use seasonal produce where available and promotes the use of rare breeds from British farms that abide by the highest standards of animal husbandry.
