House Rules: We like to place guests at our Syrian Suppers, so please make sure you let us know, in the notes when booking, if you'd like to be seated with particular people who have booked separately.

We do also cater for vegan/veggie and dairy/nut free, so please highlight this in the notes when booking so that the right food comes your way.

Thanks so much!

the Syrian Supper Club team

In a Nutshell

We like Food, we particularly like Syrian Food and we really like Syria. In July 2012 we decided to do something to show our friends in Syria that they had not been forgotten and to raise money in light of the growing humanitarian crisis. We mixed some ideas about; food, Syria, people around a kitchen table, merriment, experimenting, raising awareness and funds. The result was a Syrian Supper Club, it was the only idea which rose from the cooking pot and stayed intact.



The Whole Hog

Now we have teamed up with Chef Ruth Quinlan and the E5 Bakehouse to do a series of Syrian Suppers at the Bakehouse in London Fields; an ideal setting for a Syrian feast.

Ruth Quinlan has fed prime ministers and pop stars and is head chef at the Crown, Kemerton. She started at the Eagle (& compiled their book), was head chef at the Bermondsey Kitchen and E5 Bakehouse, has toured the world as a travelling chef and once toyed with becoming a tattooist in Ibiza - for our sake and yours, we're delighted she chose the wooden spoon and not the needle.

The Syrian Supper Club was set up by four friends and since 2012 we have held over 150 suppers, fed over 3,000 people and rolled a whole heap of falafel. Other Syrian Suppers have popped up around the world, in places like Cairo, Singapore, Washington D.C. and Istanbul. We were even featured in Vogue and named one of London's best new supper clubs in January 2014.

The Syrian Supper Club uses a very simple yet powerful formula; by gathering people around a table and sharing food people are united behind a common cause. To date we have raised over £200,000 for our registered charity, The Hands Up Foundation's projects in Syria (charity no. 1156491).

In terms of cancellation, we can offer a full refund on a ticket as long as you let us know at least three days before the event. This is to ensure that we don't end up with empty seats round the dinner table, and each supper raises the maximum it can for the aid projects we fund in Syria.

The food was absolutely delicious and the team that cooked and served it up, so welcoming and gracious. The brief talks by the charity's founders (and organisers of the supper club) about how the proceeds of the event - and all of the funds they raise - are channelled directly to Syria were brilliant and inspiring. They created a really buzzing atmosphere - inviting us to enjoy the food and have a great time while supporting an incredible cause. The vibe was full of hope. A really special evening. Highly recommend!

Particularly liked the starters.

A great atmosphere and delicious food for a worthy cause

Lovely evening!
