Fine Dining Club

Welcome to Cumbria On A Plate's Fine Dining Club. 
Annette Gibbons first started a Dining Club for Cumbria in 1997.  The Club is an excellent way to dine out on Cumbria's finest food, learn more about the ingredients and wine from expert speakers and to meet new friends.

You can enjoy an exclusive menu with accompanying wines organised by Annette at a special price for Club members.  Experienced chefs devise these seasonal menus using delicious ingredients bought from Cumbrian farms and producers close by.  Annette talks about the dishes chosen and a wine expert tutors the wine tasting. Accommodation is provided at most venues.

Annual membership is just £25 per person.  To request a membership applicaton form please telephone 01900 881 356 or 0773 4424 856 or email

We have a full list of events at exciting venues for you to choose where to dine, knowing that the menu has been especially created with matching wines.
