Guests that have stayed with us know that we offer dinner on certain nights of the week. However,we are continually asked by people locally whether we offer dinner to anyone not staying with us. The answer has normally been – no, only to those who are staying with us or their guests as we do not have the dining space available – but persuaded by locals we know, we started offering Pop Up Suppers last year and they were such a great success we thought we might offer them again this year.
Inspired by the Cuban Paladares (family-run restaurants serving authentic, inexpensive food in people’s houses), Pop Up Suppers have become increasingly popular in the UK and worldwide over the last 15 years.
Also known as Underground Restaurants, Supper Clubs, Guerrilla Restaurants and Secret Dining Clubs, they are a way for aspiring chefs to experiment running a small restaurant without such expense. And, of course, another source of income for natural born hosts/budding cooks to do something they love from the comfort of their own home. Part of the fascination for the diner however is the journey into a stranger’s home. One such Pop Up is at www.thesecretsuppersociety.com We haven’t been ourselves, but this is a prime example of a lady doing what she loves. It looks fantastic!
Pop Up’s also feature at festivals and in yurts but ours features in our beautiful house, (our bed and breakfast), with stunning views over the River Dart (in Devon) and out to sea.
We shall be cooking on the following days with the proviso that at least 6 people book on any one night – we can take a maximum of 12 (14 possibly on three tables). We are happy to pick up and drop off at the ferry for anyone coming from Dartmouth if that helps.
