Every Wednesday, between 12pm and 2pm, guests can enjoy a delicious and seasonal three-course lunch, cooked and served entirely by the prisoners training in the restaurant. After lunch guests will hear from some of the people behind The Clink Charity as well as the prisoners currently in training at the restaurant who will share their stories and how working in the restaurant is helping to turn their life around.
The lunches offer a fantastic insight into the hard work and dedication that lies behind the training and prisoner rehabilitation that the restaurant delivers every day. The addition of the talks means that not only do guests enjoy an impeccable three-course meal but also discover and understand how The Clink is giving prisoners a second chance at life.
Chris Moore, chief executive of The Clink Charity commented, “These events are a great way for us to extend the prisoners’ training even further and giving them the opportunity to stand up and share their story with people who want to give them a second chance at life helps build their confidence and self-worth, which is vital in their rehabilitation and reintegration back in to society.”
The spring menu, that will run until June, features soup of the day served with homemade sourdough bread followed by pan-seared duck breast with celeriac dauphinoise, baby vegetables and cherry jus and blueberry cheesecake with blueberry compote and blueberry coulis to finish.
The lunch event is £24.95 per person and includes welcome drinks, a three course meal, tea and coffee as well as a free prisoner art and poetry book worth £8.95.
