Tommy Bank opens Lords Dining Club

06.05.19 | Tommy

It currently takes upwards of 29 years to reach the top of the membership waiting list at Lord’s. But if you don’t have that sort of staying power, you can enjoy the benefits of eating in the cricket club’s Grade II* listed Pavilion as part of the Lord’s Dining Club.

Lords Dining Club in the iconic Long Room launched to honour the age-old pairing of food and cricket, Lord’s Dining Club couples the traditions of Marylebone cricket club with innovative cooking from a line-up of world-renowned Michelin-starred chefs.

“Lord’s is just incredible. I have to pinch myself when I think I’ll be cooking at Lord’s this year. As a child, it was this bastion of cricket which felt absolutely enchanting.

Watching on TV, the prestige of the Pavilion felt so far away from anything I would ever see or do, so it’s amazing to think I’ll be cooking there, and in the Long Room too, just days before this incredible summer of cricket.”

The event will take place in the Grade II*-listed Pavilion, including a Nyetimber sparkling wine reception with a selection of MCC canapés in the Long Room Bar – or in the famous Dressing Room for those who wish to indulge with a VIP package – before feasting on a four-course menu in the historic surroundings of the Long Room. The evening will conclude with drinks provided by Sipsmith Gin.

Tommy has exclusively designed the menu and each course is paired with a matching wine, chosen to enhance the culinary delights on offer. A Q&A session hosted by cricketing legend Angus Fraser, will delve into the chefs’ successful careers as well as exploring the menu choices guests will be enjoying on the evening.

The Lord’s Dining Club experience is priced at £160+VAT or £220+VAT for the VIP package. Individual spaces can be purchased online by following the link below or by telephoning 020 7616 8501. For any queries contact events@lords.org.
