Join The Literary Hour and Long John Silver as they host a riotous knees up using techniques as old as fire to carefully curates courses with thoroughly modern twists to ensure you survive the perilous crossing. It wouldn’t be a sailor’s life without tinned, salted, dried and smoked goods, but don’t worry you won’t be catching scurvy, as we’re spicing up these age old preserving techniques to ensure a sumptuously safe passage is made to the treasure.
If you’re a discerning diner in search of a sumptuous yet adventurous dinner then sampling Long John Silver (or Barbecue as he’s known affectionately to his amigos) tastiest dishes and finest grog will be exactly your flavour. Amongst other delights, you’ll devour the finest sustainably sourced smoked kid (please note no children were hurt in the preparation of this menu, but if Long John Silver had had his way Jim Hawkins future may not have been quite so illustrious).
What’s Included In The Ticket
Tickets are £49 + Booking Fee for a welcome cocktail, 4 courses and some Literary Hour surprises and culinary treats smuggled in along the way. There’s also the choice of a drinks flighting, (a glass of prosecco, a cocktail and two glasses of wines) perfectly paired to compliment the mouth-watering creations.
About The Literary Hour
After sell-out successes that have delighted diners with A Feast in Narnia, disgusted them with Dr. Lecter’s brain fritters, and whisked them Around The World In 80 Days, The Literary Hour are back. This chapter will be inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s buried treasure escapades. There will be the usual top secret Literary Hour culinary surprises peppered throughout the evening as well as readings to accompany and contextualise each course. To give you a flavour of the fun that awaits without giving away all the secrets, previous surprises have included a Turkish Delight guess the flavour game (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe), snuff (Cider With Rosie) and Willy Wonka’s 3-course dinner chewing gum (Charlie and The Chocolate Factory).
