FAMILY SUMMER GARDEN PARTY
Hooray! We are going to hold a Family Summer Garden Party on Monday 28th August and we would love you to be here.
Join us from 1pm to 8pm, for a day of relaxed fun for ALL the family with a fabulous Summer BBQ buffet and entertainment. As this is a family event in our garden we know how much the children love face painting, so they can form a disorderly queue at Claire’s stand and if Grandad is desperate for glittery eyebrows, we’re cool with that too.
Arrive to a complimentary glass of Pimms, then head to your table for the start of a joyful day with loved ones.
Tickets are £40 for adults, children under 12 are £14, toddlers under 6 are £10 and please note these prices relate to food only, drinks are an additional cost.
To make a reservation call Anne on 01732 521918 and she will be happy to help you.
MEMBERS EVENT – SOUTH AMERICAN DINNER
Hands up – who thinks it’s darn Chile? See what I did there?! It’s not much warmer in Santiago so let’s jet over to Rio de Janeiro where it’s positively tropical and we can be “tall and tan and lovely” as we walk to Ipanema Beach.
I’ll stop wittering and cut to the chase…..
Two of our senior chefs come from this stunning part of the world and they want in on the foody evenings! Join us on a FRIDAY for a 5 course tasting dinner and a selection of wines from across the continent. We’ll crank up the Bossa Nova soundtrack so get your Samba shoes out of the cupboard and swing on down.
Eloise and Nick will greet you at 7pm with chilled prosecco and guests will be asked to sit down at 7.30pm. If the above doesn’t tempt you enough, here’s the menu for your perusal…..
Empanadas, Spinach & Cheese
Sea Bass Ceviche, Jalapeno Chillies, Lime, Coriander
King Prawn Moqueca, Roasted Peppers, Steamed Rice & Toasted Farofa
Argentinian Grill, Black Angus Beef Fillet, Sirloin, Chorizo, Morcilla & Chimichurri
Dulche de Leche Cheesecake, Toffee Sauce
Coffee & Brigadeiro Truffles
Please note dinner is complimentary for members who have not yet enjoyed their one free club experience, however if you have made use of your “freebie” and still wish to join us with guest/s, the cost is £110 and would apply to all attendees, per person.

CORONATION PARTY – MONDAY 8TH MAY
Who’s up for a right royal knees up? I’m furiously making bunting, the plastic Union Jack table cloths are on order and as I type, Nick is mastering his apple bobbing skills – to celebrate the Coronation we are throwing a party on Monday 8th May at The Swan and we would love to see you here! Arrive to a glass of fizz and enjoy Frazer Hamilton who will start proceedings in the marquee, followed by Nic Fanciulli, Simon Dunmore and the Dunmore Brothers who will all play in the restaurant.
We shall dine like Kings and Queen Consorts – Head Chef will cook up a bountiful Summer BBQ that will be served feast style to your reserved tables, positioned throughout the garden and marquee space; the bar team will ensure the unlimited drink included in the ticket price (bottled beer, prosecco, white/rose wine, house spirits, mixers and soft drink) are plentiful for the entire event.
Ticket price is £110 per person (over 25s only), doors open at 2.30pm with food served at 4pm and finally the event finishes at 10pm. Please note, strictly no ticket sales on the door or resales and from 6.30pm onwards we will move inside to party.
So, let’s raise our beer glasses together to the crowning of King Charles III. To purchase tickets for a fabulous day of music, fizz and fun at The Swan, get your butler to give me a call on 01732 521918 or drop me an email – these will sell fast and there are limited seats at this banquet.
Old MacDonald had a farm….
West Malling Farmers Market takes place every 4th Sunday of the month and let me tell you this, it’s a busy one! Farmers come from across the land dressed in their finest gators, driving their carts and tractors, to sell their fabulous homemade produce and wares.
I can easily part with many shillings on the delicious breads, cakes, fish, candles, jewellery, honey, scrumpy and more; generally all edibles purchased are devoured by mid-afternoon the same day! If you are dining with us when a market is taking place, just bear in mind the parking can get a little busy and the main part of the High Street is closed.
MEMBERS EVENT – SEAFOOD AND WINE DINNER
Our next members’ event in The Club will be held on Thursday 18th May; Head Chef is very excited about this one! Join us for an evening of glorious seafood comprising Scottish langoustines, Rye Bay scallop ceviche, Scottish mussels, native rock oysters and more! Whilst you relax Nick will ensure delicious, chilled white wine is served alongside your meal.
Eloise will have the fizz ready for 7pm and dining will commence at 7.30pm.
Please note, this dinner is complimentary for members who have not yet enjoyed their one free club experience, however if you have made use of your “freebie” and still wish to join us with a guest/s, the cost is £110 and applies to attendees, per person.
