Party the Night Away Underground

With Christmas and New Year’s Eve just two months away, party season is on the horizon. Here at Kings Head, we’re already beginning our preparations. We like to party all year round – which is why our unique underground music club runs events throughout the year for all of our guests to enjoy.

Our unique underground vaulted cellar has exposed brickwork and a statement arched ceiling that gives it true character, and is home to our popular cinema nights and comedy club. It’s also where we hold our live music performances, in which we collaborate with Glovebox Live to source musicians from all across the country.

On the 8th November 2018, Cornish trio William the Conqueror will be performing at our Vaulted Cellar – a well-known indie-rock band that have gained praise all over the country. After making their mark at AmericanaFest in Nashville, they signed a contract and subsequently performed at the UK Americana Awards 2017 alongside other artists, including Van Morrison and Richard Thompson.

We’ve previously had artists such as Nine Below Zero and Emily Barker perform in our music club, which were popular and provided great entertainment for our guests. This experience makes us a truly unique place to stay, and with dedicated staff on hand, you can be sure that you’ll be well looked after.

As well as our own events, the Vaulted Cellar can also be hired by our guests for private party hire – whether that’s for a birthday party or a venue to hold your Christmas gathering. Whatever you decide to use the Vaulted Cellar for, you can be guaranteed to have a lot of fun – we’ll provide disco lighting, as well as a dance floor that you and your friends can enjoy.

We’re also hosting our Festive dining parties in the Vaulted Cellar, where we’ll be serving up some delicious Christmas dishes for you and your friends to indulge in… all before celebrating the festive season on the dance floor!

For those who would like to stay overnight with us, we have a New Year’s Eve Stay & Party package on offer. Your experience will begin at 3pm on New Year’s Eve, where you’ll be able to treat yourself with an afternoon tea or spa treatment to prepare for the night ahead. After getting dressed up, you’ll be welcomed into the evening event with a cocktail before being presented with a hearty four-course dinner. After you’ve seen in the new year, you’ll be able to relax in one of our luxurious bedrooms for the night. You won’t have to worry about waking up early on New Year’s Day, either – checkout is at midday, so you can enjoy a well-deserved lie-in as well as a delicious full English breakfast!

The festive season is just around the corner, and we think it’s about time we brought you an exciting sneak peek of our festive dining experience!

Whether you choose to dine with us for lunch or dinner, our dedicated staff will ensure that you’re surrounded by a truly festive atmosphere to get you in the mood for the Christmas holidays. We’re also offering our guests the chance to book early and receive an extra surprise - those who book and confirm their table for the restaurant before Friday 16th November 2018 will receive a complimentary glass of fizz on arrival.

For those who would like to enjoy a Christmas feast with a difference, our Wine Cellar and Panel Room are perfect for parties of 8 or more. You’ll be presented with options ranging from smoked mackerel and a roasted Norfolk turkey dinner to a traditional Christmas pudding; see here for the full sample menu.

Best Venues for Your Christmas Party

Looking for a chic, stylish, yet versatile venue to host your Christmas party? Christmas is getting closer and we couldn’t be more excited. We think the best way to celebrate is by having a Christmas party that can be enjoyed with your family and friends alike. Here at the Kings Head, we have an array of authentic, sophisticated venues which we can tailor to your preferences, so that you can host a Christmas party to remember.

Our Assembly Room, blessed with beautiful architecture, is perfect for parties with a large number of guests. This spacious and versatile room means that tables and chairs can be arranged however you wish, with the private bar allowing you to keep returning for your favourite Christmas drink! Should you need some fresh air, you can retreat to your private roof terrace, complete with outdoor furniture, patio heaters and fairy lights which is accessible from this room. The Assembly Room also has its own reception area which is perfect for pre-dinner drinks or alternatively can be used as for smaller parties, where up to 40 of your chosen guests can drink and dine.

For a room with a more vintage look, our Vaulted Cellar features exposed brickwork with arched walls and ceilings. The truly unique décor will make the perfect party atmosphere for those who like something a little different! The space can be transformed into either a casual seating area or a sophisticated dining experience – the choice is yours. Nevertheless, the dance floor at the back of the room will be waiting for you and your guests to enjoy at your desire!

For a more unique dining experience, why not try out our Wine Cellar? Again with rustic, exposed brickwork and an arched ceiling, this is certainly a dining space with a difference. Perfect for smaller dinner parties and wine tasting, this room holds up to 18 guests. With a whole range of wines tucked away into brick crevices, this is a wine-lover’s dream – and can also be enjoyed by non-drinkers alike, thanks to the eccentric designs.

Our beautifully decorated Panel Room features unique wood panelling in Cotswold colours to give a true sense of the countryside. This sophisticated room is perfect for private dining and is versatile enough to hold either circular tables or one long rectangular table.

Whichever room you choose, you’ll have a Christmas party with a Cotswold twist, with the antiques and natural material finishes adding that extra bit of sparkle. Our dedicated team will work hard to ensure that your party is nothing less than special, and remembered by all of your guests. For more information about private hire rooms, please click here.
