Set designer Alice Hodge has transformed the bare white walls of the space into a campsite in the English countryside, that's right, think billowing canvas, flickering lamplight, nature all around, the seagull’s cry – everything you might expect from a camping trip apart from the drizzle and mud.
Those familiar with The Art of Dining’s signature interactive elements will not be disappointed, with mini-tutorials in camp craft, ghost stories galore, and a camp-fire sing-song to warm yourcockles.
Five courses designed by chef Ellen Parr (Moro) encapsulate the fun, experimental, and sometimes charcoal-y flavours of campsite cooking. In one evening, you will experience a whole weekend of outdoors eating. Dishes include a posh pot-noodle (a version of Vietnamese pho); a Thai twist on the campfire barbecue; and a Moroccan breakfast dish with eggs and flat bread.
This is perfect for anyone awaiting the return of the long, light evenings of summer.
