There are few restaurants that have consistently grown in popularity quite the way Hoppers has. The trio of London restaurants has expanded laterally too, offering meal kits, takeaway and an online shop of ingredients and cookbooks. The King’s Cross branch, like the other two, offers private dining, which is a great way to enjoy the incredible food and drink in a more intimate setting.
Hoppers King’s Cross has a range of spaces to choose from, each with its own character and capacity. The Coat of Arms Dining Room seats up to 74 guests and can be booked as part of an exclusive or semi-private hire. For summer nights, the outdoor dining terrace can host up to 35 guests for a seated meal, while the bar space can seat 28. For an extravagant meal with up to 135 guests, the restaurant can be hired in its entirety.
While there is also an a la carte menu with plenty of choice, it’s worth mentioning the group feasting menu, as it features some great dishes affordably bundled together. Plates arrive to share between the table and include mutton rolls, devilled prawns, Chettinadu chicken bites, lamb kothu roti, Kalupol roast chicken, bone marrow varuval, vegetable mallung, dhal kari, raita, hoppers, dosas, rice, rotis, chutneys, sambols and a chocolate biscuit pudding. There is also a similarly structured vegetarian group feasting menu.
Highlights from the a la carte menu include hot butter squid, chukka butter grilled sea bream, chilli cheese dosa, swimmer crab kari and more. As such, bespoke menus are available, allowing more flexibility when it comes to dishes. You and your guests can sip on a coastal cocktail before the meal, with options like the southside swizzle and Kandy krush. Hoppers has collaborated with Camden Town Brewery to create their own beers, perfectly brewed to accompany the food. There is a short and punchy wine list, with all options available by the glass or bottle.
