Looking for some spooky treats this Halloween season? Plenty of London cafes, restaurants and bars offer Halloween-themed menus or dishes, from a special supper club to a roving afternoon tea. We've highlighted a few below. We've also covered Halloween events and parties in London, and horror film screenings in London this month.

Kraken Rum’s Haunted Bar

Kraken Rum’s Screamfest VII: Shock Exchange is a unique one, in that the cost of your drinks is based on your heart rate: the more scared you are, the more you pay. You'll be fitted out with a heart rate monitor when you arrive at the Clerkenwell Catacombs, then sent into an "immersive gauntlet of relentless horror" for which you'll need to sign a waiver.

Screamfest VII: Shock Exchange. Available 26-28 October

The Dinner Ladies present a Sinner Supper Club

Head to Clapton to join all-female event catering team the Dinner Ladies for a bone-chilling seven-course dinner, with each dish representing one of the seven deadly sins. From Sloth with truffle pig’s head croquettes to Vanity with poison apple black forest gateau, the Dinner Ladies take you through purgatory with this extravagantly spooky meal experience, paired with an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink for each course.

Sinner Supper Club. Available 31 October. £60pp with an additional £30pp for non-alcoholic drink pairing or £40pp for alcoholic pairing.

Canteen Food Hall’s Halloween festivities

The week leading up to Halloween, the Canteen Food Hall in North Greenwich metamorphoses into a Halloween hotspot, serving up scary-themed food and drink including Monster Spam Burgers at Hawaiian street food stall Huli Huli's and Another Planet Pumpkin Bowls at Indian eatery Raastawala. Limited edition cosmic cocktails are available at the bar — including a special one for kids. The venue also hosts children's Halloween activities, including pottery painting, Halloween quizzes, and dance parties.

Halloween at Canteen Food Hall. Available 23-31 October.
