FUNCTIONS AT Zetland Arms
The Zetland Arms is a lovely pub set on Old Brompton Road, South Kensington featuring a distinctive exterior that wraps around the corner of adjacent Bute Street.
The Zetland Arms was built in 1845 on part of the former site of Bute House. Built for the 1st Marquess of Bute in the early 19th century, this house earned Bute Street its name. The pub is now the street’s oldest surviving building. One of our pub’s more notable past owners was Sid Chaplin, brother of legendary comedian Charlie Chaplin, who bought it for him and their Mother.
Head upstairs room and you will find the Chaplin Room, a function room referenced to the famous former owner. Often used for dining when it’s not reserved for an event, this function room is ideal for private dinners. With space for up to 50 people, the Chaplin Room is also a wonderful choice for work parties, birthdays and weddings. We can adjust the room to suit your event, and you are welcome to bring your own decorations to personalise the space. Our late license on Fridays and Saturdays allows for the option of extended celebrations, while a private bar and toilet facilities create extra privacy for you and your guests.
