• I’ve had a few people ask what the Secret Sunday Lunch Club actually is, so to explain:

    it’s a Supperclub. Still confused? A Supperclub is a current trend in an alternative way to eat out. It basically means that once a month (or so) I turn my living room into a restaurant, invite strangers into my home and cook for them – for hard cash. It’s a bit like Come Dine with Me only I don’t sit with the guests and we don’t visit each other’s homes; although I’m sure a fair amount of snooping goes on.

    There are many types of Supperclub, ranging from professional chefs experimenting with new recipes to students dishing up Beans on Toast but most are keen amateur cooks with a passion for food. Some focus on locally sourced ingredients, others the best ingredients, as well as themed menus, or family recipes from around the world; the point is that each one is different and expressed individually by the host. My speciality is a traditional Sunday roast with lots and lots of gravy.

    The concept is just as much about meeting people and conversation as it is about the food. Guests mingle and chat over a well cooked meal without paying exorbitant restaurant prices. The cost varies depending on the menu but is usually a set amount, payable in advance or as a suggested cash donation. The menu is fixed but advertised in advance so visitors are able to decide if they would like to attend and most Supperclubs will cater for dietary requirements if enough notice is given.

    There are several good websites but the best is supper club fan group which lists most of the Supperclubs in the UK and some further afield. You’ll be able to search by date, location or go direct to a page. There are blogs and news feeds, as well as some useful information on Supperclub etiquette .

    About Us

    It all started with a bunch of hung-over friends searching for the perfect Sunday roast, but alas, it seemed this was too much to ask of the local pubs. Retreating home the only solution was to create the proper roast we’d been so eager to find – and so the Secret Sunday Lunch Club was born. It is now a regular event for those in search of home-cooked comfort food and the atmosphere remains as laid-back and friendly as ever.

    Tucked away at a secret Notting Hill address your afternoon kicks off with a nibble and a tipple getting to know your fellow Lunch Clubbers. In the summer months this can be enjoyed on the slightly kitsch balcony overlooking the rooftops of Portobello, or in the winter by the cosy fire. You’ll then settle in around the dining table to enjoy a good old-fashioned Sunday roast. We’ll carve at the table and an array of seasonal vegetables, condiments and plenty of gravy will be placed in the centre of the table where you’ll be encouraged to help yourself to as much or as little as you like – and if you fancy seconds don’t be shy, there will be ample to go around! Don’t forget to save room for a traditional pudding which will invariably involve homemade ice-cream or custard, or both. For those with a savoury tooth, cheese is on the menu too. Finally, you’ll finish off with coffee, a selection of fresh teas and homemade pistachio macaroons.
