Supper Clubs

The Physic Garden Café would like to welcome you to a series of evenings that speaks to all your senses, taste, smells and sight. It is a celebration of culture and nature accompanied by delicious food.

These Supper Clubs will be hosted in the midst of the Garden and you will have the magic of dining under the stars.

Book yourself a seat at the next Supper Club After Hours and get the chance to experience the culinary world of Chelsea Physic Garden.

The evening will start at 7pm with a chilled Aperitivo followed by a seasonal set tasting menu seated in the Garden. You will have the opportunity to meet the Chef behind your plate while dining.

Considering the dining will be outdoor in the evening we do recommend to bring a jumper or jacket along with you. In case of bad weather, you will be seated inside the Café or under our marquee area.
