It seems that the Supper Club phenomenon is quite a Southern England thing... at least I haven't seen any Supper Club members much further north than Manchester.
Why might that be?
Are we too mean to invite strangers to our home?
There are apocryphal quotes heard from the Scottish such as these two
To a visitor to the house "ye'll have had yer tea then?" - meaning 'don't expect free food and drink from us
And a comment on the parsimony of the Scots "every penny a prisoner".
Anyway enough of that - here in Cumbria we are generous spirited and it would be lovely to hear from other potential or actual Supper Club holders in this area!
