Tickets: https://bit.ly/2QYSpRk

William Sitwell's Supper Club at Weston Hall, Northamptonshire, is delighted to release tickets for its November dinner: an event with the fabulous Lupins restaurant located near London Bridge in London. Critically-acclaimed chefs Lucy Pedder and Natasha Cooke, proud owners of the restaurant and they met in the kitchen at Medlar in Chelsea. The girls went on to pursue their dreams and opened Lupins in May 2017. The two talented chefs capitalise on their love for true seasonal British ingredients at Lupins and it has paid off. Giles Coren, critic of The Times, described their food as 'tasteful and eloquent' and Marina O’Loughlin, critric of The Sunday Times called their menu: 'Utterly simple, completely seductive'.

This is the second time the girls have cooked at Weston and they agreed to return after a very successful dinner in November of 2017. The evening promises to be a wonderfully convivial night of great food and drink. Exceptional wines, as ever specially chosen by Red Squirrel, will match the dishes and there’s a delicious aperitif and canapes too. Tickets, which include the equivalent of a bottle of wine per person and fine water from San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, are just £85 for this sought-after dining experience.

Canapes and an aperitif will be served in the Drawing Room and Library and guests will then make their way into the dining rooms for dinner on one of the communal tables in the hall (seats 34), dining room (seats 20) and Justice Room (seats 8). Tables can be requested on a first-come-first-served basis. Configurations can be made for 2, 4, 8, 12 and 16.

Drinks are served from 7pm, for seating at 7.30pm sharp and the dinner ends at 10.30pm. Pre-dinner drinks include cocktails courtesy of Warner Edwards gin and Double Dutch tonics.

La Bonne Franquette Blanc 2016

A spring-in-its-step Gascon blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Colombard and Petit Manseng, farmed by the Marcellin brothers near Condom. “La Bonne Franquette” is nigh-on impossible to translate, but means doing things in a homely and informal fashion, making this quite the apposite white for the Weston Supper Club feel.
