The idea behind it is simple and positive; gather people together, introduce them to a delicious part of Syria’s rich culture, and at the same time, do something good. All monies raised will go towards our work funding aid projects for those affected by the conflict in Syria. For information on where the monies go, please click here.

About The Supper Club
The Syrian Supper Club started in 2012 when four friends who loved Syria decided to do something to show friends back in Damascus that they hadn’t been forgotten despite the unfolding conflict. What began as ad-hoc dinners in people’s kitchens turned into a hugely successful monthly supper club in the E5 Bakehouse in Hackney, where guests are treated to delicious Syrian cooking and a lovely evening in a pop up restaurant. Keen to raise even more, the Supper Club team has now expanded from Hackney to South London, West London, Bristol and Oxford.
The original Syrian Supper Club has now teamed up with chefs Geoff Howard and Jess Filbey to run a monthly Syrian Supper.Geoff has been one of the head chefs for the Music at Albignac music festival for 12 years, and has had spells working in a Lebanese restaurant and a French brasserie; Jess is a Chef at the River Cafe in Hammersmith. They both like to combine a fusion of traditional and contemporary elements of Middle Eastern and southern Mediterranean food.
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.
Providing us with a mobile number is also very helpful in making sure we sit you with the right people/sort out your dietary requirements.
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.
