Charlton House at the RIBA 
Good food lies at the heart of our business and we believe passionately that the eating experience should be central to the success of every event we serve.
Our Michelin-starred chef, David Cavalier, food innovation director, has created new menus to ensure high quality brasserie restaurant standards at the RIBA. David's impressive credentials include Executive Chef roles at Mosimann's and High Holborn.
These menus are by no means all that we can do, but provide a basis from which we can discuss further options. Our executive chef and his brigade are passionate about making each and every eating experience at the RIBA a memorable one. Regardless of the size or type of function, we source the freshest natural ingredients to create exciting, contemporary menus within budget. For further details of the catering available at the RIBA, please download our catering menu below or contact Charlton House on 020 7307 3747. 

Within the building you will find outstanding catering in three very different formal and informal settings.

The RIBA Bar in the entrance foyer serves coffee and tea as well as wine, spirits, bottled beers, cocktails and deli bar food. This sleek, funky new café, designed by Azman Architects and opened in August 2005, is a great place to meet, prepare or wind down. The bar can be hired in the evening for up to 30 guests.
