The next time you feel like a cheerful and delicious meal in a charming setting, do yourself a favour and head straight to the Friday night Supper Club at the Larder Café in Claremont. We popped in a few weeks ago and it was one of the best Friday nights we’ve had in a while.
First of all. The space is full of personality with unique pieces of furniture and décor throughout. The service is fantastic – it’s great to see a team work so well together. In fact, this is one of the reasons we loved our visit so much. We had an absolute blast chatting and laughing with Sonja and her team. It’s not often you get to do that in a restaurant these days. Supper Club at the Larder feels like you’re at your own little dinner party. Without the hassle of cooking and cleaning. If that doesn’t sound like the perfect Friday night, then I don’t know what does.
The Supper Club at the Larder Café takes place three nights a week, Monday, Thursday and Friday with each night being a different theme. Monday is roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings, Thursday is curry & craft beer night and Friday is Burger and Pizza night.
We went on a Friday night and I knew we were in for a treat. I’m already a solid fan of their brunch (mushrooms on toast for the win), their spicy plum ketchup and their legendary cinnamon buns. After a good chinwag and a few glasses of wine, we finally came up for air and ordered our dinner. We decided to share a burger and a pizza so that we could get a good taste of both.
The beef burger was soft and juicy with a generous portion of creamy brie and tangy pickles on top.
Served with crispy potato wedges.
The pizza was thin and crispy and topped with mushroom ragu, rocket, cheese and chorizo.
Let me tell you something – their mushroom ragu is the business!
I’d be happy to eat it with a poached egg for breakfast, on top of a pizza for lunch and in a curry for dinner. Everything was fresh, super tasty and great value for money.
I can’t wait to go back and try their curry and beer night.
