            Supper Clubs

All of this stared with a supper club at Olive's café on Elm hill. Supper club specialises in cooking up world foods, from Ethiopian to Nepalese, Argentinian to Vietnamese.

If you haven't heard of a supper club before, it's sort of like a restaurant and sort of like a dinner party. You book a table, give us some money and we do the rest. There is no choice about what you eat, it's just one meal so all you have to do is turn up, relax and prepare to be fed. The atmosphere is sociable but you don't have to mingle unless you want to.

Olive's supper club is still going strong, though it's now only once a month so demand for tables is high. As well as this we host other one off supper clubs in different venues around the city.

The kind of meal you get at a supper club varies, sometimes it's multiple courses, sometimes it's a selection of plates for the table to share, other times it's one great big plate each. We try to be faithful to the traditional style of dining that goes with the menu. Vegetarians are always catered for but we do need to know about any other special requirements in advance. Olive's (and most of our other venues) are licensed so you can buy drinks to go with your dinner, if you're lucky we might have even come up with a fancy cocktail to compliment your food.

 Bespoke buffets and catering

After many requests from satisfied supper club customers Alice decided to set up a side business as an outside caterer for private parties and events.

We can do traditional buffets with handmade pastries, cakes and savouries, plus cooked meats, cheeses and other good stuff from our affiliated local suppliers. This is a bespoke service so can be tailored to meet your budget and requirements.

If you're after something a bit more adventurous, why not consider our world street food buffet, with a selection of delicious savouries from all four corners of the globe. If you prefer the idea of Vietnamese summer rolls to sausage rolls then this is the one for you!

To get further information on menus and prices give us a call on 07592 335953 or email
