Georgian Coach House, Clapham

The Glebe House is a beautifully converted Georgian Coach house, built around 1825.  A private home, photographic and film location, B&B and small event space, Glebe House is owned by Alix, who invited DDC to take a look.  It is on the site of the original Manor House of Clapham, and the surrounding area was the original Clapham village. There has been a church on the site next door overlooking the Thames since as early as the 12th century, and is siad to be where many of Oliver Cromwell's army are buried. 

Dinner will be served in the the living room, which used to be a passageway through which the horses and carriages travelled into the stable yard beyond.  DDC will be setting up in the fantastic kitchen, and Alix will be on hand to show guests around the house.  Rooms are also available should any one wish to make a night of it, and you can contact Alix for B7B HERE.

Dinner will be four courses, and include a welcome cocktail.  A selection of wines and other drinks will be available to buy from DDC staff on the night.  The menu will be announced closer to the date, and all dietary requirements can be accommodated (as long as you tell us what they are in advance).

DDC believe in quality, seasonal ingredients and good cooking, serving elegant but unfussy dishes for people to enjoy.

Fab location and a really fun night. Good honest grub, the rabbit and crayfish pie was utterly delicious and the wine exceptional. The DDC crew looked after us beautifully. Don't come expecting great value for money on the food and wine, what you're paying for here is the whole experience and that I can heartily recommend. It's a wonderful way to meet people in unusual and often outstanding locations whilst being thoroughly looked after. Thank you, Emma Visited The Glebe House London on 2015-11-21

Seeing Glebe House all decked out for this occasion was marvellous, and just went to show what a splendid location it is for an event such as this. So full marks to the venue and to Alix our excellent 'hostess'. It's a different way to have a dinner, and you do really have to speak to your fellow-diners (so don't go if you're not the sociable sort!). For us it worked really well on that score, and we had some very interesting conversations. So for atmosphere and general conviviality, you couldn't fault it. The best thing on the menu was the rabbit & crayfish pie, which was very nicely done and flavoursome (though, as noted by another reviewer, a ceramic dish with a bit of pastry on top ain't really a pie, mate). The starters were fine (we didn't suffer from hair in the appetiser, so let's hope that was a one-off!), and we thought the pudding was good too. The veg was a bit odd - couldn't work out whether the curly kale was supposed to be cold of had just been standing around too long, and the swede was a bit too coarsely mashed. Main complaint really was the drink. The champagne cocktail aperitif was nice, but where was the port we were promised afterwards? Nowhere. No coffee either, no petits fours, which, for £55 a bash, is what you'd get at any good restaurant in London. And wine was advertised a 'between £6.00 and £25.00'. If they meant wine at £6.00 a glass, then there wasn't any on the wine list, and the cheapest bottle was £30.00. We think a little more attention to the detail of advertising what's on offer would help. Oh yes, and they got Alix's email wrong too on the publicity. Service was good, attentive and efficient, and friendly too - so no complaints there at all. The food came along quickly, and there were seconds too! What they could have done with was something to 'set the scene' before we all started noshing. Maybe a short introduction or welcome by DDC (or even by the knowledgeable Alix) telling us a bit about Glebe House and its history, what makes it special and so on (and, if they must, a plug for the next DDC event). That would have given people a bit of a handle on the event - and something to kick the conversation off, rather that the usual "And so what do you do...?" Overall, we would have expected a bit more for our money which, with the wine, came to £85.00. Not cheap - even for Clapham! But certainly a memorable night out.

Reply from The Glebe House London

Hi there Simon & Nigel – thanks for coming on Saturday night and for your review. I just wanted to respond to a couple of points. Firstly, the promise of port after your meal was made in error. It went completely unnoticed by us until the end of the evening. I understand that the team on the night apologised and provided an alternative drink. Big apologies for this. The lowest cost for a bottle of wine was £25 - as per the pre-event info email. We sell the same wine elsewhere at a higher price and we feel it is good value at this amount. If you feel misled by the information we provided in advance of the evening, then I can only apologise, and I’m glad that you appear to have enjoyed the evening overall. I'll follow up with Alix as I know that you are a friend of hers. Thanks once again for coming, and I hope that next time we can have a chat about what makes a pie a pie! Many thanks Stuart
