If you’re looking for a unique dining experience then look no further than these Kent Supper Clubs! Date night with a difference? You are welcome.
Bangers&Balls host of Supper Clubs and home of foodie revolutions. Expect banging ingredients and ballsy flavours – see where they came up with the name? They are on the journey against the ‘blandification’ of food with sustainable, local food at the heart with their creative chef Duncan Tinkler. Their Supper Clubs are far from boring, you’ll have to follow clues (top right) to your cocktails and canapés before taking your seats in the candle lit barn. Set on the beautiful Yew Tree Farm School in Bredgar where cheeky pygymy goats roam, chickens under foot and the sheep lazily grazing under the trees, it’s a beautiful setting! Their next one, The Magic Faraway Tree is on Fri 16 & Sat 17 Oct starting at 6:30pm, just in time for sunset. Can’t get a babysitter? Join their family-friendly Lunch Club on Sat 17 from 1:30 – 4pm with their Magic Faraway Tree Menu with a twist on the boozy items for the kids.
Try this micro-dining experience! Run by Julie Friend (@kentcooking) who has been cooking professionally for over 20 years since winning MasterChef back in 1997.

Since she’s collaborated with award-winning Mereworth Wines and Marourde.
A magical retreat, located deep in the Kentish countryside, built with your relaxation at the forefront of their minds. Samsara is the place in Kent to go to unwind and reconnect with yourself.

Curious indeed! This brilliant little restaurant is set up in what was a disused pub in Boughton Monchelsea. Run by sisters Lesley and chef Nicole (also known as Pixie) who has cooked for Richard Branson, this is tasty wholesome, unfussy food at its best. Oh, and you’ll definitely want to join in with their Secret Supper Clubs. They’ve held their exclusive dinners in some weird, wacky and wonderful locations over the years, from old-fashioned steam engines (top right picture) to fully functioning gin distilleries. A highlight from one of their Secret Supper Clubs was digging the food out of the ground at Roundoak in Sutton Valence (bottom left). Our top in-the-know tip is to follow them on Facebook and keep your eye out for when they release dates as they book up fast!

This hidden gem of a pub encapsulates everything that we are about at Muddy – cool and quirky as well as being easy on the eye. Head Chef, John Young and Morgan Lewis are in charge here and they are hugely passionate about making every item from scratch, where possible. So you’ll always find new and fresh dishes, as the menus reflect the changing seasons and many of the food is foraged locally. So make sure you book their next Supper Club, offering a full seven course tasting menu featuring the wonderful produce in Kent plus a wine pairing with each food course. As you enjoy the steady stream of homemade goods coming your way, sit in the backdrop of candles and a roaring fire. For the menu click here and to make a reservation call: 01227 721339.
