Friday Lates


Introducing our regular Friday night one table supper clubs, a dining experience on one long table in the Long Gallery. So grab a drink, browse around the latest exhibition then sit down to a delicious supper. The evening will be a social event with likeminded people interested in the arts over a set three course supper designed by our new evening chef Ana Ortíz.

Ana completed her chef training in London but her heart is wood fired cooking inspired by her South America roots. Her ethos is to use only the very best seasonal ingredients from local suppliers to create vibrant, fresh dishes.
Places are by reservation only for our evening suppers.

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!
