Donhead Village Hall Pop up restaurant?

Now that out village hall has a super kitchen we have been thinking about starting a pop-up restaurant. Pop-up restaurants, also called supper clubs, are temporary restaurants. These restaurants often operate from a private home, former factory or similar space, and in our case village halls.

From what I gather pop-up restaurants started in the United States and Cuba and have been popular since the 2000s in Britain and Australia. So why not add Donhead St Mary to this list.

They have been hailed as useful for younger chefs, allowing them to utilise underused kitchen facilities and “experiment without the risk of bankruptcy”.

If you are interested in food, a young chef seeking an opportunity to demonstrate your skills or just would like to take part and see if this idea could become a reality please contact Anna McDowell on 01747 829010 or email
