Prince Philip House reports an astounding 150% increase in revenue

Posted on: December 13th, 2013 by chandco

Our venue Prince Philip House, located on Carlton House Terrace overlooking The Mall, has reported a 150% increase in revenue since it was launched by Prince Philip in October 2012. November represented the most successful month to date for the historic Grade I listed building, marking yet another example of how the events industry is spearheading the economy in London.

Previously relating 60% of business to daytime conferences, Prince Philip House has seen a huge increase in evening events and is now fast becoming one of London’s best fine dining destinations. It has already attracted the attention of high profile companies including Shell, BP, Rolls-Royce and Elsevier Publishing, who have regularly used it during 2013.

“Repeat business is already playing a big part for us in 2014, the Waitrose Christmas showcase will be going ahead again in July and we’re also very excited to be hosting the second installment of Prudential Ride London in August,” said Becci Thomson, Sales and Marketing Manager.

With the addition of new Head Chef Stuart Cooper, Prince Philip House has seen a significant increase in fine dining as well as establishing themselves with an impeccable reputation for private dinners. With a Michelin star background, including stints at Chez Bruce and under Herbert Berger at 1 Lombard Street, Stuart has also worked at other venues in the Harbour & Jones Events venue collection including the Royal Society. Since starting in August he has put his own stamp on the venue by introducing a bespoke 8-course taster menu that can be crafted for anything from 8 to 80 guests.

“We’re currently working on an invite-only fine dining evening in the Spring. We’ll be exclusively inviting a small number of event bookers and showcasing our taster menu but the format of the evening is completely different to anything I have worked on before!”

“Next summer we’ll also be completely refurbishing the kitchen which will give us an opportunity to introduce new equipment and cooking techniques, as well as the possibility of some molecular gastronomy elements,” added Becci.

Also home to the Royal Academy of Engineering, Prince Philip House underwent a£7 million refurbishment and was launched in October 2012 by Prince Philip himself, who is also an honorary fellow of the Academy.
