Eat Drink Think is a dining-with-a-difference event series with a simple concept; 3 courses of fresh seasonal cooking, 3 sessions of intellectual invigoration in the form of guest speakers, screenings or performances, and 1 fully stocked bar! 

We believe the pairing of a delicious meal with some great shared entertainment creates the ideal social setting. Each course of food is followed by a short and expertly curated offering from the stage, acting as a catalyst for conversation to flow as the evening continues.

With the general election looming large, Eat Drink Think invites you for two special events orbiting Planet Politics in the surrounds of London Fields Brewery;   

Thursday April 30th (book tickets via this page) - “General Election 2015; the story so far.” What are the political parties promising us? Who is winning the 'spin' wars, and how? What might these 'hung parliaments' look like? Benedict Pringle, ad-man and founder of is joined on stage by three staunchly relevant commentators to discuss these questions and more, warts-and-all;

Philip Cowley
Academic & Author
The firmest grasp of the quirks and peculiarities that pervade UK elections

Stephen Bush
Online political editor, The New Statesman
The freshest journalistic talent in Westminster

Caroline Kent
Daily Telegraph Columnist
The fiercest political punditry; Never knowingly on message
