The trees held hands overhead as we wound our way out of Oxford to the warm glow of the Cotswold farmhouse. Every Friday and Saturday night, The Secret Supper Society open their country home to a small selection of guests and treat them to a fabulous dining experience in their own cosy, softly-lit dining room.
Cook, Jules Thomas, assisted by her husband and daughter serving team, delivers a taste sensation in a carefully crafted five course set menu. She is attentive to special dietary requirements, and even promises to not serve you the same dish twice.
The evening is all about the food, which looks as though it has been lured from the glossy pages of a high-end cook book. The captivating smell introduces each approaching course and silence falls in the intimate dining space as each guest becomes mesmerised by the beautiful plate that is presented to them.
And the flavours do not disappoint. Using ingredients and methods that you would not often encounter, the Secret Supper Society perfectly balance a friendly home atmosphere with a unique tasting experience. From lobster bisque, to whipped Brie, to fairy floss, the pop up restaurant offer an unforgettable experience.
You are welcome to bring your own drinks, which will be chilled as necessary and brought to you at the touch of a bell. You are also invited into the kitchen, should you wish to watch the menu come to life.
The restaurant is open Friday evenings for several smaller tables, and Saturdays are dedicated to pre-booked private parties.
