Granary Watlington, Fri 22 Mar, Fri 26 Apr, Thurs 16 May, Fri  31 May

I’m a big fan of The Granary and its hard-won reputation for its superb cheese and deli offering. It’s 2019 supper clubs are in full swing for Spring with March offering a pasta making masterclass with Pasta Evangelists- you’ll learn to make your own fresh pasta and then be served it for dinner with paired wine, ciao bella! More supper clubs to come, details TBC.

Sneaky Supper Club, Isis Farmhouse, Sat 23 Mar

Sneaky Supper Club pops up at Isis Farmhouse (book that babysitter now!) with a five course seasonal menu of pigeon breast, confit salmon and more, plus live Gypsy Jazz. If you’re looking further afield, there’ll also be a supper club at the London Cooking Project HQ in Battersea on Fri 29 Mar.

Smoke and Thyme, Thurs 25, Fri 26, Sat 27 Apr

Young chef/blogger Jack Greenall’s super groovado supper clubs have already sold out for  Mar, but don’t worry- there’s a few dates lined up for April so get booking ASAP if you want to secure a spot. The events are pay-what-you-want, based on how much you think the evening is worth. Smoke & Thyme will also be popping up at Botley’s hip hangout and brewery, Tap Social Movement, with scrummy sounding fried chicken, Thurs 11 –  Sat 13 Apr. Veggies catered for too.

Pickled supper club, Hamblin Bread, Iffley Rd, Thurs 28 Mar 

Eight courses inspired by pickle? I kid you not (there’s even a pickle inspired drink). Oxford based Cranston Pickle have teamed up with chef Jack Denning to curate a menu inspired by the vinegary delight. It’s a local affair with meat from Waterperry Farm Shop, fresh veg from Sandy Lane Farm and beers from Tap Social Movement. Currently there’s no vegetarian option but get in touch if your a veggie and really want a pickle fix.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

Waddesdon Pudding Club, Sat 9 Mar

Pudding? Er, YEAH. The Manor restaurant’s head pastry chef Craig Clark and his team have put together four dessert courses to satiate that sweet tooth. Each course will be complimented with a glass of fizz or wine chosen by The Manor’s in-house wine advisor and there’s a cheese board chucked in for good measure.

£55

The Yafo Kitchen, The Manna Community Cafe, Botley, Sat 9 Mar

Tickets are £30, veggie options available. BYOB.
