Venue Announced for New Pop-Up Restaurant

Venue Announced for New Pop-Up Restaurant The venue for a new pop-up style of restaurant in Shropshire called ‘The Glutton Club’ has just been announced. The Glutton Club will open exclusively for one month only from 30th November 2012 at 165-167 Frankwell, Shrewsbury (the former site of Frank Café Bar), next to Theatre Severn.

George Cavendish, the young, ambitious local chef behind The Glutton Club, said “We are really excited to be launching The Glutton Club which is based on the “pop-up restaurant” style of dining. This means the restaurant will open initially for one month only, so I would love to invite you to come and try the Glutton Club experience while it’s here.”

The menu for The Glutton Club will focus on fresh seasonal produce, simple and imaginative dishes and quality British cuisine. Dishes will include winter warmers such as Red leg partridge with lentils, spiced pear and Brussels sprouts; trio of local lamb cutlets, crispy belly and ballotine of shoulder; to our signature ‘Gluttonous’ sharing platters, which prove that gluttony doesn’t have to be a sin!”

The ‘pop-up restaurant’ is a concept that was started by Shrewsbury’s Charles Darwin in his university years. Charles and his friends would meet every week to sample new, exotic foods and as the food would change so too would the venue, with a different student dorm chosen each week to play host to the tasting.

George said, “It seemed only fitting that we chose the riverside location at Frankwell in Shrewsbury as the The Glutton Club’s inaugural venue; the Quantum Leap Statue which was built to mark Darwin’s bicentenary is right outside and everything is now gearing up for our opening on Friday 30th November!”

The Glutton Club will be open for lunch and dinner from 12 noon to 10pm Monday-Saturday, 12-4pm Sunday, from 30th November 2012 for one month only.
