An Alternative Christmas Feast at the Brunel Museum

Back by popular demand Tom Hunt’s Forgotten Feast will again create an Alternative Christmas banquet at the Brunel Museum.

December 7th to 15th you can enjoy a ‘Feast of 7 Fishes’

Limited number of earlybird tickets are now on sale for £35, standard price £40 BUY TICKETS HERE

Guests will enjoy a ‘Forgotten Feast of 7 Fishes’ including carpaccio of scallop, risotto nero and clementine chocolate fondant. Before dining, on request guests will be treated to a guided descent into the underground Grand Entrance Hall of Brunel’s Thames Tunnel, one of the great wonders of Victoria age and the first tunnel under a river anywhere in the world, which was closed to the public for over 140 years.

The meal will be served family style on big serving platters. Tom will be representing 7 forgotten fish, sourcing fish that are often neglected or not usually seen on British menus.
