Our regular Supper Clubs are quickly gaining a dedicated following and a reputation for being relaxed, informal good fun with great food.  Once a month we have a talk or event and the speaker is our special guest at supper afterwards, our head chef Sunny Sin creates a special menu for the occasion.

Reserve your place at either the talk, supper or both but be quick, places in the restaurant are limited!
