Underground dining: a supper club on a Tube carriage

Basement Galley - underground supper club, Victoria Line (c) Basement Galley

For once, the term ‘underground’ really is an apt description for this supper club, hosted by the Basement Galley in the quintessential London setting of a tube train. A 1967 Victoria Line tube carriage, no less. Sadly, the carriage is no longer in use, so you won’t be stopping at Warren Street station in between courses – though if anyone from TfL is reading, that would be a great marketing wheeze (and would give a whole new meaning to the Oystercard). Instead, it’s permanently off-track at the Walthamstow Pumphouse Transport Museum. An ‘off-peak single, from starter to dessert’ costs £35, for a meal that includes duck and cherry terrine, fizzy cocktail jellies, Louisiana-style shrimp and grits, and fig and lavender tart. You know how crowded the tube can get, so do book ahead.

The Underground Supper Club is on May 25 and starts at 6.30pm-10.30pm. Tickets are now sold out, but keep your eye on basementgalley.com or follow them on Twitter for future supper clubs.
