This week’s menu (Thu-Sat) is inspired by Greece:

Spanakopita, a classic filo pie featuring creamy feta cheese, spinach and dill

Sumptuous roasted red peppers stuffed with creamy arborio rice, golden sultanas and toasted pine kernels (vegan)

A bright spelt and chickpea salad with roasted red peppers and kalamata olives (vegan)

A classic Greek salad, with feta and wild oregano

Santorini fava dip with garlic, lemon and capers, fava is the term used to describe puréed yellow split peas and is a wonderful alternative to hummus (vegan)

A tasting plate comprised of a little bit of everything is priced at £10. Book now to secure a table either in our light and airy gallery or in our beautiful courtyard set within the utterly sublime St Anthony’s Hall garden.

Available to eat in or take out between 12.30pm and 2pm, or until it’s gone.


A further cancellation in September means we have two places available for Friday September 21. (It is worth putting your name on Supper Club waiting lists as cancellations do sometimes happen!)

We are now taking bookings for our decadent Christmas Supper Club on Friday December 14th. Please note tickets for this will cost £40 for a Champagne cocktail followed by three courses of epicurean delight.

Meanwhile, we are now curating a series of private suppers at the gallery for between 10-12 guests. These are wonderfully intimate events with exclusive use of the gallery and our pretty courtyard garden. Menus start at £25 per person.

Thank you both for hosting us so generously last night. The flavours, aromas and textures were sublime – I could have eaten that garlicky labneh forever! The gallery looked beautiful and it made for a very special night for our three departing colleagues”  – Chloe Smee, Senior Programme Manager, Soil Association Food for Life

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
