The KPH is a neighbourhood pub located on a prominent corner of Ladbroke Grove and Lancaster Road, featuring a first-floor dining room and seven boutique bedrooms. The venue is available to hire exclusively for events and large parties, able to accommodate everything from corporate functions to family gatherings.
Gastropubs are a great middle ground when it comes to hosting an event that falls somewhere between casual and formal in tone, as they bridge the gap between super casual event spaces and stuffy dining rooms. The KPH, with its deep red leather banquettes, oak-panelled bar and stunning black and white photography lining the walls, has enough pizazz to make it suitable for an event, but still manages to feel homely and unpretentious.
If you’re looking to host an event for a medium-sized group, you can book out exclusive use of KPH’s dining room, which is a private space that can accommodate 55 guests for a sit-down function, and up to 80 for a standing reception. Exclusive hire of the entire venue also means a seated capacity of 55, but those looking to host a larger number of people can have up to 150 guests throughout the venue for standing functions.
The KPH also benefits from the culinary guidance of chef-director Henry Harris, who has appointed Ruairidh Summers as head chef. The dining room’s menu is Anglo-French in style, with featured dishes including guinea fowl with hispi cabbage and Alsace bacon, as well as grilled mackerel with cucumber and dill. There’s an impressive Euro-leaning wine list too, alongside a handful of Champagnes and English sparkling wines.
Looking for further reasons to choose The KPH as your next event venue? Well, the on-site accommodation is certainly a big draw, as is the venue’s inclusive nature – domesticated pets and children are all welcome if you’re looking to host an event suitable for all ages. The KPH’s trump card though, is its history as one of the oldest live music venues in the capital, and there is the option to have live music or a DJ included with your event.
