The National Trust and The Grazer present Summer Supperclubs

Unique dining experiences on the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne Castle 


This summer sees the beginning of a very exciting collaboration between The Grazer and the National Trust. As you probably know I have been running incredibly tasty and popular Supperclubs across the North East in locations that vary from wine shops to shipping containers. This summer sees their arrival on both The Farne Islands and Lindisfarne Castle.

Picture yourself on a private boat sailing over to the Farnes late in the afternoon, arriving on the white sandy beach of Inner Farne to be greeted with aperitifs and tasty treats. The evening will include a private tour of the island; beautiful beaches, the Lighthouse and its gardens, thousands of amazing birds, gazing back at Bamburgh castle and the beautiful long white Northumbrian beaches. At dusk find yourself sitting down to dine, in the lighthouse gardens or the tiny chapel on the island at a beautiful long table.

Or you could find yourself driving over the causeway to supper at Lindisfarne Castle. Arriving on the battlements to canap├ęs and aperitifs, looking out over the Farnes, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh... A personal tour through the rooms of Lindisfarne castle, your own private residence for the evening. You can pretend it's your own castle if you like! Supper will be served on the battlements; your view for the evening is the sun slowly sinking over the Cheviots.

A once in a lifetime dining experience in totally unique locations. There will only be four events with a limited number of 20 places available at each:

Saturday July 20th Lindisfarne Castle

Saturday July 27th The Farne Islands

Saturday August 3rd The Farne Islands

Saturday August 31st Lindisfarne Castle

(The event will run from approximately 5-10pm, exact times will be confirmed according to tides)

Tickets for these once in a lifetime dining events are £99 per person and can be booked by phoning Lindisfarne Castle on 01289 389244. Prices include unique private access to the Farnes and Lindisfarne, private tour of castle and island, telescope tours of the coastline, history and nature talks from the National Trust, food introductions from The Grazer, welcome aperitifs, three courses of fine food, wines to match, digestifs and coffee.

The sharing menu will include a table long platter of seafood to start, fresh poached lobster, langoustine, homemade garlic mayonnaise, rollmop herring, devilled eggs, homemade buttermilk bread, homemade butters, samphire salad and other surprises. A main course of slowly braised Northumbrian lamb, anchovy pan haggerty, 'condimint' and other seasonal vegetables followed by a scattering of sea inspired tasty puddings.
