Long Room Wine and Food Society

The Long Room Wine and Food Society conducted the first of many memorable monthly luncheons in the Long Room in June 1987. The monthly luncheon occurs on the last Wednesday of each month.

Also, other special events such as the annual dinner held in April and the November luncheon, which is devoted to international wines, are conducted through the course of the year. View upcoming functions

The society has established a substantial cellar beneath the Members Pavilion and draws occasionally from this resource for "cellar days" which are held two or three times each year.

Winemakers are invited to show their wines at all other functions. Outstanding cuisine is provided by a rotating band of high-class chefs from club caterers, EPICURE.

Most luncheons attract more than 180 members and guests (maximum two per member at present), which is the capacity for the Long Room, meaning some functions are held in the Members Dining Room.

Current membership is fully subscribed to the maximum limit of 260, and there are currently over 450 on the waiting list.
