Six Star Supper Clubbing
Because five is never really enough
Getting to the Michelin heights of Maaemo (3 star), Le Manoir (2 star) and Dabbous (1 star) would have been a serious challenge (even before Dabbous closed to become Hide). Significantly less of a challenge is getting to a supper club with James Goodyear, who has worked at all three of the whizz-bang restaurants. Taking place over two weekends in September, the twelve-seat-only-suppers are also your excuse to get into Manor Cottage, the beaut new property in Hampton Manor's arsenal that you usually need to hire to get inside. The four-course menu will be inspired by the ever-growing walled garden you'll be eating within. Your spot also includes snacks and a drink on arrival from Loic Cretel, Hampton's bar manager, who will be staying for the evening to make sure you're looked after on liquids. It's £65 to get your seat, with a choice of nine September dates. Talk providence and technique with chef between courses, or take advantage of the cottage's good looking lounge and gardens if that's more your thing. Either way, book here. And if you can't currently get the table-size you're after, do join the waiting list.
