The Supper Club
Tom Kay and his team in The Supper Club have been pushing all the right buttons since they got the doors open in Kinsale’s newest eating house. A terrifically well-chosen menu of food, drinks and friendly service offers the true Kinsale zeitgeist, and the level of discrimination they bring to their work is what gives the Supper Club its edge. That great gin and tonic that kicks off your evening, for example, will be Bertha’s Revenge milk gin from North Cork, or Leitrim’s own Gunpowder gin, with Poacher’s tonic water from Wexford, so it’s a classy Irish artisan gin and tonic that gets the ball rolling.
The cooking also strikes just the right note: prawn scampi with dill and lemon mayonnaise; beef burger on brioche with jalapenos and guacamole; hake with spiced lentils and samphire; Supper Club steak with stout-braised onions and bearnaise. This is fun, friendly, felicitous cooking that almost guarantees a good time will be had, and pricing is very keen. The rooms are comfortable, and there is an excellent outdoor area, pretty much the perfect place in which to enjoy some beef short ribs cooked slowly on their Green Egg. There is a dynamic crew at work in The Supper Club, and their zeal makes for a fab new addition to Kinsale’s gastronomic profile.
