Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the Secret Feast? Our locations are kept secret until very close to the event, when booked guests are contacted (usually via email) to confirm the meeting point. The locations are exclusive, by which we mean that they are not everyday places that you can visit and they can only be accessed when attending The Secret Feast (or other organised events).
How do I book? Click on ‘Bookings’ on our website. After selecting your required dates and guest requirements, a Booking Confirmation email will be sent to you so that you can complete your menu choices and advise us of any special requirements. A week before the event you will be sent details of the meeting point, along with a final check of your menu choices and any special arrangements. You can always email us after booking if there is something important you need to check.
Why do I have to book in advance? Because we create immersive experiences in unusual locations (often without permanent structures or facilities), it is important for us to know who our guests are, their dietary requirements and any special arrangements that we need to make in advance of their arrival. This ensures that all of our guests have a first-class service and an incredible experience from start to finish.
Pod Dining: How many people can I have in a pod? The Secret Feast In The Garden is an intimate experience, usually with just 9 pods (so 9 tables) per sitting. Because of this, we ask that pod bookings are for 8 guests. At our adult-only sittings, this is a group of 8 adults. For family-friendly sittings, this is a group of 8 people, 4 of which must be adults (so 4 adults and 4 children, 5 adults and 3 children and so on). Sometimes we are able to seat an extra guest in your pod to create a group of 9 and guests can liaise with our office to make these arrangements.
Can you cater for my dietary requirements? Absolutely, as long as we are made aware of the guest requirements in advance of the sitting. When booking, guests are asked to make their menu choices and highlight any dietary requirements on the form. This information is discussed with the Kitchen and a member of the Secret Feast team will acknowledge the requirement and confirm the changes that we will make to the menu for your guest. You can always contact us via email to discuss your requirements or update your booking so that you are comfortable that we have all the information we need.
What about drinks? We operate a full bar at all of our events with a varied wine list, similar to a normal restaurant. Guests can complete a pre-order when they arrive or order drinks during the evening from their dedicated pod host. We also offer a new Drinks Flight to complement the menu and this is being launched very shortly.
What is the Advance Register for? You can, if you wish, sign up to the Advance Register to receive early booking details and a link to book The Secret Feast prior to general release. Signing up for the Advance Register is free and can be done on the website by clicking on ‘Advance Register’. You can unsubscribe at any time. If you have attended a Secret Feast you are automatically included on the Advance Register.
What do I wear for The Secret Feast? Each of our events are different but, unless we advise you otherwise on the booking confirmation, please assume that you are free to dress as if you are going out for dinner at a restaurant. The Secret Feast In The Garden takes place in beautiful wooden pods and requires a short walk to your pod so a coat is important.
Do you provide parking? The majority of our exclusive locations provide parking at or near to the event. We will indicate where parking is available when we tell you about the meeting point. You can always email us to check in on those arrangements if they are important before you book and we will always do our very best to accommodate access requirements for our guests – we just need to know about them in advance.
