Finding dinner times boring? This meal at London Zoo may be just what you need to claw back some excitement.
On 27 September chef Ollie Dabbous (chef proprietor of the excellent Dabbous restaurant) is hosting a dinner where you can come 'almost' (crucial word, that) face to face with tigers, kangaroos, and wallabies at the same time.
You'll start by enjoying a champagne reception overlooking the Tiger Territory, then begin a journey through an Indonesian habitat where you can observe the stunning creatures through floor to ceiling glass windows.
Ollie will then cook you a three-course meal, served in Mappin Pavilion, the Grade II listed building that overlooks the wallabies and emus.
Tickets for the dinner cost £135 pp and include the food, champagne reception, half a bottle of wine per guest, and as much animal ogling as you can handle.
All funds raised will go to Hospitality Action, a charity which aims to support those in the hospitality industry who find themselves in crisis.
The event takes place at London Zoo on 27 September. Visit the Hospitality Action website to purchase tickets.
