What Our Weekly Supper Club Means...
Although lock-down and the restrictions have brought massive challenges and forced us to essentially rethink our core business (!) the silver lining has been the freedom to curate weekly supper club menus for a smaller number of guests. Our House Events have been really special since we reopened, creating a more intimate atmosphere for couples and small groups.
Time to Feast
This will be our third annual ‘All Hallow’s Feast’ - a joyful celebration of one of the most abundant times before winter sweeps in fully!
We are delighted to curate this limited menu to share in small groups - featuring our favourite seasonal treats and fantastic British & organic produce.
One of our most popular Supper Clubs - we're keeping it just how we like it - ultra fresh and always seasonal... This is such a perfect time of year to match vibrancy with comfort and hearty flavours with texture and tonal layers.
We're running small numbers for this one - so don't leave it too late to book!
Timings update: in order to comply with the new regulations, and be able to shut our doors by 10pm we are inviting all guests to arrive from 6.30pm and by 7pm for drinks. Our 3 course Feast will be served at around 7.30pm

How to Book
Secure your seats through our online shop.
We're taking bookings for tables of 2, 3, 4, 5 up to 6 - to comply with Tier 2.
We are incredibly fortunate that The Mowbray is a large, airy, well ventilated venue with lots of floor space - meaning we can space our tables and guests with maximum comfort.
Please be sure to bring your face masks - which must be worn at all times unless you're sitting at your table to eat and drink.
Guests can book a maximum of a table of 6. We will ask to confirm that all members of your table are not in a group required to isolate. We will also ask you to confirm that no members of the party have experienced Covid symptoms.
If you are booking as a couple you may be seated on a shared table 1 meter plus apart from another couple.
As usual we'll ask you to provide all guests dietary requirements so we can look after you perfectly!
If you wish to book for a greater number than 6, let us know! We may need to split your party on to separate tables
Some dishes will be for your party to share; please let us know how many households are sharing your table, and how many from each.
If you have any questions about Covid guidance and dining out - please just drop us a line - we want to make sure you feel comfortable and excited about coming to dine at The Mowbray!
We match our Supper Clubs with some real treats from The Mowbray Bar - and we'll ask you to preorder drinks at the time of booking.
We'll send you a menu to choose from and we also intend to offer table service for extra and spontaneous drinks orders on the day!
Since the government announced the re-opening of hospitality venues we have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that you can dine with us safely whilst still being able to enjoy the atmosphere we offer at our Supper and Lunch Clubs. You can view our COVID Charter here for more information on how we are keeping both you and our staff safe.
We are taking all steps outlined in our Charter incredibly seriously and we ask that you do too.
We can't wait to welcome you back to The Mowbray!
Lockdowns & Other Covid Relating Issues
While we're remaining thoroughly optimistic we will be able to keep momentum through these times - we're also realists...
Perhaps we'll be locked down, maybe not - we just don't know... To plan for that - we'd like to suggest to everyone who has booked or is thinking of booking with us - that if we're able to and the menu allows - we'll switch to The Mowbray at Home - which will allow you to either collect dinner from us - to finish at home - or we'll work together to transfer you to another date.
