Montpelier Basement, A Bristol Supperclub Located in a Basement

Seeing Fiona Beckett sing their praise made me want to know a bit more about Montpelier Basement, a Supper Club or Speakeasy Restaurant if you prefer.

Besides a few details and photos on their Supper Club Fan Page part of Ning group organized by Ms Marmite Lover of Supper Club book fame.


Niamh of Eat Like A Girl visited them last December and she gives us a little background on this Bristol venture:

"Dan & Ellie run Montpelier Basement from their lovely basement flat in Bristol. Dan is the blogger behind Essex Eating (although he now lives in Bristol) and Ellie runs Bristol based Pear Cafe. A mini break from London to check it out, seemed like a fine idea. In its first month it scored a mention from Xanthe Clay in the Telegraph, and subsequently from Fiona Beckett. I was sure it wouldn’t disappoint."

Their most recent dinner took place this Saturday, May 28.
