Renowned chefs Lisa Goodwin-Allen, Ollie Dabbous and Alex Greene will each host an exclusive evening at Lord’s with a specially designed four-course menu, which will be hosted in the ground’s Long Room inside the Grade II listed Pavilion.

Lisa Goodwin-Allen, head chef of the Michelin-starred Northcote restaurant, near Blackburn, hosts the homecoming event of the Dining Club on Tuesday, October 26. She’ll bring a fresh take on traditional Lancashire cuisine to the table.

Ollie Dabbous follows on from Lisa in 2022. Chef Patron of Hide, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Mayfair, Ollie has forged an accomplished reputation among the London fine dining scene, having honed his talents in some of the UK’s best kitchens before opening his own.

Both Northcote and Hide have recently been placed in the Estrella Damm National Restaurant Awards which celebrates the best of the UK dining scene, so their evenings are an opportunity to sample some of the very best of British cuisine.

Northern Irish Alex Greene, who heads up the kitchen at Belfast’s Michelin-starred Deane’s EIPIC completes the line-up in March 2022. Hailing from farming roots, and having worked in Gordon Ramsay kitchens, Alex’s culinary style is classic-style cooking with modern twists.

The evenings begin with a Nyetimber sparkling wine reception with a selection of canapés served in the Long room Bar (or in the Dressing Room should you want the VIP experience), and wrap up with a Q&A with the chefs, hosted by former England cricketer Angus Fraser, about their successful careers and the evening’s menu choices.

Previous guest chefs who have hosted Lord’s Dining Club are Tom Kerridge, Claude Bosi, Simon Rogan, Daniel Clifford, Tommy Banks, Michael Caines and Raymond Blanc.
