On Friday evenings the galleries will be open  for a chance to see the current exhibition and the Mess Restaurant will be open for supper too. So grab a drink, browse around the the tithe barn and Long Gallery then sit down to a delicious supper. The menu will be designed by our new evening chef Ana Ortíz.

Events at the Mess Restaurant


Our regular suppers 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 events chef Ana Ortíz 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!
