We are finally back with our seasonal solstice supper clubs! This will be our first in-person supper club in over 15 months and we are so delighted to be able to host and feed you in real life once again.

This year’s menu will conjure up those missed Mediterranean holidays, with a generous sprinkling of edible flowers and herbs from our garden.

Imagine standing on a warm Tuscan hillside devouring freshly cooked flatbreads from a wood-fired pizza oven. Or, the sand between your toes in a Greek beach-side taverna as you tuck into slow-cooked lamb with heaps of garlic and lemon and unctuous, cheesy, moussaka followed by a thick slice of fragrant, syrupy cake. 

Think elderflowers & sweet geranium, cucumber & almond, aubergine & roast lamb, tomatoes & pomegranates and luscious apricots & lavender.

We’ll finish the evening outside (weather permitting) gathered around our fire pit with a chocolate mint tea, and amaretti biscuits, celebrating the longest days of the year in style.

Please note: In line with government guidance, attendees will be seated at tables with no more than six guests per table. If you are not attending in a group of six people, it is likely you will be sat at a table with other groups. If you are not comfortable sitting with other people then please do not book tickets as unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to seat all groups separately. All guests will be asked to adhere to social distancing and mask-wearing guidance as appropriate, more details below.

Please also wear a mask when going inside to use the bathroom. We will be providing hand sanitiser for everyone to use when entering and leaving any of the buildings. We’d also please ask guests to adhere to government guidance on social distancing and take all reasonable precautions to stay safe and keep others safe too.
