Kensington Park Hotel to re-launch as KPH

Formerly Kensington Park Hotel, the pub in London’s Ladbroke Grove will reopen this month following an extensive two-year renovation.

Operated by chef Henry Harris and James McCulloch’s Harcourt Inns group, KPH will offer a ground floor pub and a first-floor dining room.

The kitchen will be led by former St. John sous chef Ruairdh Summers with a Parisian-inspired menu overseen by chef-director Henry Harris.

Fusing traditional French flavours with influences from the Montreal food scene, dishes will champion unusual cuts of meat including offal while the drinks list will feature a selection of old-world wines, 12 draft beers, 3 cask ales and a choice of cocktails.

Originally established in the 1860s, the Victorian building’s restoration has been overseen by designer Liana Braune and her firm Zaffera.London, creating interiors to complement the age of the building.

One of the oldest music venues in London, the pub is rumoured to be the favoured local of Mick Jones from The Clash and is also believed to be where Tom Jones’s first performance took place.

Launched in 2017, the Harcourt Inns portfolio also includes The Harcourt in Marylebone, The Coach in Clerkenwell and The Crown in Chiswick.

KPH will open this month.
