“Tantalise your tastebuds with Bel and The Dragon’s supper club”- Get Surrey
Formerly a congressional church built in the 1600s, Bel and the Dragon is certainly not your average high street restaurant.
Offering diners a tempting menu of seasonal British classics, the striking architecture adds a touch of culinary theatre to the dining experience.
Once a month, the expert staff put on a supper club to give gastronomes the opportunity to share gorgeous food and exceptional wine with like-minded people.
And it does not cost the earth either!
At £55 per head, 12 people can enjoy the exclusive dinner party, plus taste new flavour combinations, make new friends and learn about perfect wine matches.
Gorgeous food and exceptional wine
January’s supper club will be on the Tuesday 13th, followed by February’s on Tuesday 3rd.
Diners will sit down to a meal of roasted suckling pig with crispy crackling and spiced apple chutney, served with duck fat roast potatoes and honey glazed root vegetables.
Pudding at the Bridge Street venue will be a warm, gooey chocolate fondant served with blackcurrant ice cream and a passion fruit glaze.
Bel and The Dragon is funky yet traditional. Still retaining the stained glass windows and wooden beams of the original church build, there is a chic and classy feel about the place as soon as you push the heavy, ambiguous door.
Bright and airy, the ultra high ceilings and white walls are furnished with intimate round wicker tables and candle light.
What makes this eatery even more unique, however, is that you can not only enjoy a cosy dinner looking onto the open kitchen, but also cocktails at the bar or private dining on the mezzanine.
The waiting staff are not only knowledgeable about every dish available, but they have a genuine passion for good food and the restaurant.
Group head chef Ronnie Kimbugwe, former sous chef of Gordon Ramsay at Claridges, has cleverly crafted a winter menu flourishing with heartwarming yet elegant choices.
If you’re not quick enough to grab a place on this month’s supper club, the A La Carte menu has some delectable dishes including seared yellow fin tuna with mustard, wasabi and soy to start, slow cooked shoulder of lamb, with roasted vegetables, rosemary and fresh mint and chocolate panna cotta with crushed honeycomb, raspberries and pistachio.
Expect precison, grace and flair on every plate.
Proving just how versatile a former church can be, the Bel and The Dragon also hosts live music events and friendly cocktail masterclasses.
