The London Bailliage is the largest and oldest bailliage in Britain.
We comprise a cosmopolitan group of enthusiastic amateur gastronomes and working professionals who enjoy good food, wine and service in one another’s company.
London is one of the world’s greatest culinary cities and we count ourselves fortunate to be able to take advantage of so wide a range of cuisines and venues, some not otherwise available to the private individual. We meet five or six times a year for lunch or dinner, some black tie and others more casual.
On occasions we will “push the boat out”. A recent highlight was our boat trip down the Thames, in summer sunshine, plied with canapés and pink champagne, en route to lunch at Cliveden. Trips further afield have included ventures to Stravangar and Oslo to attend Norwegian Chapitres and to Dublin. This year we took to the water (albeit in harbour) on a floating Chinese restaurant in Docklands, and on the former HMY Britannia, in Leith, as part of the Grand Chapitre
Chaîne membership gives access to events organised by bailliages throughout the world. We take pleasure in welcoming visiting members from abroad, travelling alone or as part of an organised Chaine tour, have enhanced our dining experience. Indeed, we have put on events especially for such tours, most recently for members of a USA bailliage on a European cruise.
You are most welcome to come to one of our events as a paying guest and experience the friendly atmosphere in which we enjoy the wonderful food, wine and service which our professional members offer to us.
