Remember supper clubs? Well they are back, and this week brings the news of one that will well and truly make you feel like you’re living life pre-pandemic. The Supperclub Tube, as the name suggests, serves up dinner on a refurbished tube carriage from 1967. Now, we know what you’re all thinking… who wants to sit next to strangers on a tightly packed tube for two hours, this isn’t 2019? But apparently it’s very popular and if you’re into your quirky food nights out, this pretty much ticks all the right boxes.
Firstly, the vintage Victoria line train is parked up in the Walthamstow Pumphouse Museum and doesn’t actually travel anywhere – a good thing given that the supperclub serves up a six-course tasting menu. The food, (plot twist) is Latin-inspired – not the first thing we’d pair with a 1960’s tube carriage vibe – serving up six course of delicious South American fare created by Colombian head chef Beatriz Maldonado Carreño. Dishes range from hake and prawn ceviche to Asado beef with chimichurri, sweetcorn dumplings to indulgent Napoleon de lulo y amaretto – that’s layers of amaretto cream and pastry. All of which sound far more delicious than quintessentially British food of the 60s – pineapple and cheese stick, anyone?

Operating three nights a week (Thursday – Saturday) the carriage has been decked out to satisfy any Instagram posts too. Along the middle of the tube, tables have been laid with white tablecloths, while those little seats by the doors (if you’re old enough to remember old Victoria Line tubes) have been made into cute little booths.
Over 5,000 foodie/tube enthusiasts have visited the pop-up since its first launch in 2018 and the reviews are, on the whole, very complimentary. It’ll definitely be a dinner to remember and beats tucking into the usually Pret sarnie between stops.
