Covid-19 Changes -
For the near future each booking will each get their own table spaced 2 meters apart from other bookings rather than the usual seating around a communal table. There will be a maximum of 8 guests total a night & just myself cooking and serving.
Guests within the same booking will be seated less than a meter apart on their table. Please get in touch if you have any questions about this set up.
Along side this there will
of course be additional sanitisation and hygiene practices in place etc.

About the Events

The food 

A 12 course modern vegetarian tasting menu from award winning chef Eddie Shepherd, also including a welcome cocktail & coffee and chocolates to finish.

The focus is on delivering truly delicious modern vegetarian food, which should also be interesting and unique.

The Evening

Catering for just 8 diners per night, seated around one large communal table (please note due to the Covid-19 outbreak I will be splitting groups into individual spaced out tables until things can fully return to 'normal'), this is an ambitious culinary project with unique access to the chef cooking and serving your food.

The booze situation

This is a bring your own bottle event. A welcome cocktail will be served on your arrival before the meal, then guests are advised to bring their own alcoholic or non alcoholic drinks of choice - wine, beer, spirits, what ever you would like to drink. An ice bucket will be available to chill drinks and of course water will be served, as well as tea or coffee at the end of the meal.

Allergies / Dietary requirements

All the food served is vegetarian. 
I can cater for gluten free or vegan guests only if notified at the time of booking.
Any other dietary requirements must be discussed prior to buying a ticket and well in advance of the event to establish if I can cater for them. Please note I cannot currently cater for nut allergies and while I can provide an alcohol free cocktail alcohol is used in a number of the dishes as an ingredient.
We also have two cats in the house, they won’t be present during the evening and we keep an extremely clean home but anyone with an allergy to cats should be aware of this.


The Walled Gardens Supperclub is located on Alness Road in Whalley Range, Manchester. The full address along with directions and a map will be sent to you upon purchasing a ticket. There is parking on a street nearby and we are well positioned for regular busses. It is easy to get here via public transport and is only a short journey from manchester city center.


Tickets are £65
The price of your ticket includes everything except the drinks you choose to bring yourself.


Tickets will be released via TOCK

To keep the ticket prices as low as possible, and with these events being so small, it really is vital that all seats are filled to make it affordable to run. So if you have bought a ticket but unfortunately cannot attend please give as much notice as possible and we will first try to resell your ticket, however if it is too close to the event and we are unable to resell the ticket you will unfortunately be charged for the ticket.

Some words from guests

'It's probably the best meal out we've had, including visits to top Michelin star restaurants. Eddie is a lovely guy, welcoming and willing to chat, he really makes you feel at home. Anyone looking for a unique dining experience with incredible food then give the Walled Gardens a try'

‘Brilliant. Intellectual, technical and fun with a capital F. The food betters many a Michelin-starred joint and at a fraction of the price. Days later I’m still thinking about it and can’t wait to return’

‘[Eddie's created] something that is not only truly unique in Manchester, but also something that’s especially difficult to capture at any time. Using his love of food and presenting a series of stunning dishes’ - Manchesters Finest

‘An evening with Eddie is a colourful culinary adventure, every course tasted sensational and was a visual feast!’.
