The Literary Hour began three years ago when a group of friends with a passion for food decided they wanted to create a new kind of dining experience; one they’d love to go to, that was anchored around unimaginable food with light touch entertainment, peppered with surprise elements and was most of all a fun, relaxed environment to enjoy an evening with old friends and new friends (aka strangers) alike. They have welcomed more than 3,000 guests to their table and have more than 200 five star reviews on supper club specialist website Grubclub.com (now EatWith). This is the fourth pop-up to take place outside of their home, transforming a venue into a magical land for a sumptuous dining experience.
What hosts are saying about The Literary Hour
This was a fantastic event. The amount of thought, time and effort which went into the full set up was incredible. The whole evening was full of fun, surprises and great food. I understand it might be the last Literary Hour event, but I really hope not so that others get to experience the joy of these evenings.
This was my fifth visit to The Literary Hour, and it did not disappoint! It's wonderful to see how they continue to grow this venture - every time I come, they have something new and creative to add to the immersive experience, and the food never fails to impress! Love love love!
I don’t think the secret location was necessary for this event and knowing where it was in advance would have been more helpful as a non Londoner. I thought Philias was fantastic. Loved him taking us off and helping us solve the clues. Those steamed bun things at hawker stand were absolutely delicious and the ribs were cooked to perfection. The nicest ribs I have eaten. Great idea to offer extras for people too, nice gesture! Homely feel too. I enjoyed the evening and the food. Just felt it was way less social than I had anticipated.
