Saturday 15th, 22nd Aug + 5th Sept | £45 per person
The Dutch Barn, Owl Lodge, Lacock

Vaughan's Kitchen are delighted to announce new dates for their unique, interactive dinner event in collaboration with Owl Lodge, Lacock.

In the heart of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, we will explore the culinary story of how Ancient Persia influenced the Greek cuisine that we know today.  No need to fly anywhere and risk quaratine on your return to the UK, stay here and the Greek experience will be recreated in the safety of your own locality. We can't do anything about the weather, except cross our fingers! 

The Dutch Barn has had significant improvements during lockdown, but in keeping with the nature of the building, of course.  At this time of year, the sides can be opened and you can enjoy beautiful views that can only be imagined in the winter evenings.

Please let us know when you book if you are in a 'social bubble' with friends or family and you will be seated together, otherwise guests who don't book together will be seated 1m apart.  There will be plenty of sanitiser around and the VK staff will wear visors or masks.

Dinner commences 7.45pm - a three-course dinner in the Dutch Barn.
