Upstairs Downstairs is a new series of events at The Dispensary Pub & Private Dining Room. Held on the same night, upstairs starts with a champagne reception, while downstairs is more down to earth. Both sound great - which will you choose?
"One of London’s most charming pub restaurants, in the heart of London’s East End, is offering a dining experience with a big difference.
Inspired by the hit TV series and in pub’s own cosy bar and grand upstairs dining room, THE DISPENSARY is putting on a series of Upstairs & Downstairs dining events.
The evenings, starting on November 14, are the brainchild of The Dispensary’s owner David Cambridge, who for many years was the personal chef to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, and his friend and colleague Philip Joss, senior footman at Buckingham Palace before joining David as Butler to the Rothschild family.
Says David Cambridge: “The Dispensary is a beautiful building that has always captivated my imagination; I wanted to recreate a unique dining experience based on fine dining of the 1920’s, together with Philip we have worked to bring this magical experience to modern society”.
For those who are dining Upstairs in the grand private room the evening will start with a champagne reception, followed by a five-course dinner which will be served by uniformed butlers.
Those dining Downstairs in the pub’s cosy bar will be served a pint of traditional ale, accompanied by a pie created by David from cuts of meat which will be available on the day."
