When Eating In Is Eating Out: A New Breed Of Secret Supper Clubs

You've no doubt come across the supper club concept - an alternative way to eat out where diners can enjoy an intimate, affordable (and sometimes amateur) evening with a complete bunch of strangers. Whatever floats your boat.

But it seems they are no longer restricted to warehouses and disused building sites, a new wave of options are opening up inside people's houses. Kind of like ‘Come Dine with Me', but without the fake smiles, bad food and TV crews. Here's our guide to a few:

1 Stolen
Can’t afford to splash out at Nobu or The Ivy? Well, Stolen Supper Club may be the answer to your problem.

Inspired by some of the world's best chefs, Mia Kulla and Leandro Santos (aka Bonnie and Clyde) rummage through cookbooks, eat at the restaurants and then recreate the dining experience every Monday just for you.

The BYO policy also keeps the price down. They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

2 New Friends Table

A clandestine pop up which began in Paris has recently been transported across the pond to East London and…Sheffield.

Via a discreet application process, guests will be invited to dine on aperitifs and canapés followed by a 7-course dinner consisting of the best seasonal produce from France.

The meal is washed down with large quantities of matching French wines – all in the comfort of a stylish artist’s home. Guests come from around the world and most of them can speak English.

3 Secret Sunday Lunch Club

Tucked away in a secret Notting Hill address, the Secret Sunday Lunch Club is – you may have guessed it – a monthly supper club devoted to a good old-fashioned roast, just like your mum used to make.

The roast is carved at the table, and a selection of vegetables and condiments will be placed in the centre for you to dig in and enjoy.

Just in case that’s not enough, (they claim there’s plenty for seconds!) they also serve up a traditional pudding with homemade ice cream or custard as well as a selection of cheese and biscuits for those with a savoury tooth.

All you need to take is a bottle (or two) of wine.

£35 per person, secretsundaylunchclub.co.uk
