What We Used To Do

Before Coronavirus changed the world, we used to be the UK’s leading ‘pop-up’, ‘supper club’ or ‘home restaurant’; a simple concept which, I understand, has been inspired by the Cuban Paladares. These family-run restaurants opened all over Cuba in people’s houses in the 1970s and 1980s serving authentic, wholesome and inexpensive food and were encouraged as part of the country’s democratic economic reforms.

I adopted this idea and ran my successful supper club in North Oxfordshire. I served excellent quality, five course dinners in the relaxed and informal dining room of my home. Occasionally, I added unusual events such as my ‘Woodland Pop-up’ or curry nights under my splendid Raj Tent. Now that we have to learn to live with Covid-19, I have adapted my home restaurant and now provide regular takeaway meals and occasional Popup Picnic events.

We’re not licensed to sell alcohol, but you can bring your own, which means you can bring the wines you love and not pay expensive restaurant prices. Any wine you don’t drink on the night, you take home with you to enjoy another day.

Dining at The Secret Supper Society gives you restaurant-quality meals served in a home-from-home environment but you won’t have to do the preparation, cooking or clearing up! I ask for a donation to cover the cost of ingredients, preparation and overheads. The suggested donations are a fraction of the cost of any equivalent standard restaurant!

To give you a bit more information about what to expect when visiting us, I’ve written an etiquette for my supper club – read the article here…

I set delicious, balanced menus to suit the produce available at the time of year. There aren’t any choices on the menu, but I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed! The ingredients are always of the very best quality sourced either locally, from my own garden, or directly from Billingsgate and Smithfields markets in London. If you want an idea of what to expect, email me for some previous menus.

Please arrive promptly as there is one sitting. On arrival, we’ll take your coats and show you to the dining room. Your wine and soft drinks will be kept chilled until you want them; red wine is allowed to breathe on your table. We provide cold, filtered still water.

Unlike the comedy routines you may have seen on TV ‘Home Dining’ programmes, my food is first class, expertly prepared, presented and cheerfully served by myself my husband and our lovely waitresses. We provide subtle background music or, if you prefer, you can plug in your iPod and play your own (as long as the other guests approve!).

At the end of the meal, as the tables are cleared, you can relax and enjoy a game of Table Trivia or just sit and chat. We can relax a bit too and, if you don’t mind, might join you for a chat and to make sure that you enjoyed the evening and your meal.

The food was wonderful – the paella and the cheesecake were the best and the tapas was really authentic too. Such a nice treat and, if it wasn’t for the cotswold stone on your house, we could have been in Spain!

I just wanted to thank you for creating a wonderful feast amidst grim times. All your dishes were a delight and really made a birthday celebration. We are so lucky to have found your magical meals!

We had a super supper last night – all tasted lovely and ‘cooked’ happily in the AGA, Thank you

Thanks for the meal yesterday. We really enjoyed the food. Will definitely be back

You have made lock-down bearable! Your takeaway food is sublime. Thank you for all the amazing dishes – your passion for food and your unwavering commitment to the best quality ingredients… ❤️

The takeaway you made this week was amazing ? You have managed to keep the restaurant quality and it was so easy to do. The instructions are great and took no time at all. A real pleasure and will be back for more ???

Thank you for our Supper tonight – it was sensational. X

Absolutely LOVE this!! Love our weekly chats and my weekly Secret Supper takeaway is such a highlight so I’m delighted you might continue ?

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Nick and Clint for a really wonderful evening on Saturday. Everything was absolutely faultless and we had such a fun time.  You made us feel so welcome in your lovely home and your food is outstanding – the Jerusalem artichoke risotto and the gazpacho granita in particular for me – how on earth you manage to get so much flavour into those dishes I have no idea!

Thank you so much for making my birthday so special. You’re both the perfect hosts and you, Jules, are a VERY talented chef; the meal was sublime – the blend of flavours exquisite and a joy to eat. I think everyone should sample your excellent cuisine at least once in their lives – you should be on everyone’s ‘Bucket List’!

This was one of the most amazing dining experiences I’ve had. The setting was beautiful and the warmest of welcomes from the hosts. It’s like having dinner at a friends house. There is so much I could say about how brilliant it is – the food is out of this world, the service was amazing and we had a truly wonderful evening.

An absolutely fabulous night with friends, in the comfort of Jules & Nicks home. You’re made to feel welcome as soon as you step inside & they look after you from that moment until you leave. The food was fabulous.

Every course we ate was utterly delicious, well balanced and plentiful. We were stuffed to the brim by the time we left. Fantastic value for money.

Have wanted to visit for a long time and last night we finally made it!! What a hidden gem this place is. Fabulous food; wonderful, welcoming atmosphere; perfect hosts. Am already planning a return visit. If you want a treat and something different you won’t be disappointed.

If you are looking for a fantastic evening, with mouth watering food and amazing people hosting you in there home this is the place to go. An experience everyone should encounter (I have more than I can count on one hand !) the waiting list is MORE than worth the wait!

What a find! We visited Jules, Nick and Flora yesterday evening for one of her restaurant nights and enjoyed one of the most welcoming and fun evenings ever. The food was exquisite, top quality fare, the service perfect.

If you want good food, good service and a good atmosphere then you need to get to the Secret Supper in Somerton. I have made numerous visits and always look forward to my return and what Jules has in store for us that evening.

Most welcoming home. We celebrated a very special couples silver wedding anniversary . Company terrific and we were treated to a most superb meal. Great menu, faultless presentation and even better taste ! Would love to visit again . Thank you for a superb evening.

I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone! We all had an amazing time. You were fantastic hosts, the food was outstanding, set in a lovely location. Perfect!

Coming to you for Andrew’s 60th was a triumph. I’m so pleased I trusted my instincts because you and your team exceeded all expectations. Fabulous!

Thank you for a truly wonderful evening last night, the food was unbelievably delicious – only hope we will not be banned for slightly raucous singing exhibition – Thanks again!

Thank you to you and your family for the most memorable wedding day ever!!!!! It was all we had hoped and dreamed of and more… Just perfect!!

Due to the very nature of Supper Clubs, I prepare and cook all the food myself without a small army of assistants and chefs behind me. Therefore, it is with regret that dietary preferences, intolerances and vegan diets cannot be catered for. Please feel free to contact me regarding medical conditions and allergies and I will see if I can help. Please Note I cannot cater for severe nut or egg allergies.
