They have lovely Events, some of them, in private Members Homes. Curry Evenings – Turkish Tasting – I went to their CAVIAR Tasting at The Lansdowne Club. A Director from the London Fine Foods Group talked us through 6 Caviars. We were each given a small palate to spoon out a discreet number of eggs to taste aided and abetted with belinis and liberal sips of Champagne.

The magical notes of Mozart’s Magic Flute entranced my senses as I sipped Champagne; nib bled crudities and studied the Menu. Allegro Moderato - I chose The Big Boss Seafood Selection.
A great evening - a huge Thank you to King Richard and his Courtly Staff.
