The Walled Gardens Underground Restaurant is unique culinary experience from award winning Chef Eddie Shepherd. Serving an innovative modern vegetarian tasting menu in an informal, sociable setting.

Eddie cooks for just 8 diners per night, seated around a large communal table. The focus is on delicious food & a relaxed atmosphere.

An ‘Underground Restaurant’
- The Walled Gardens strives to serve a dynamic tasting menu but with the informality and hospitality of a supperclub. It takes place on the converted ground floor of the chefs home where Eddie cooks from his small, open, professional kitchen.

The concept is radical in its simplicity - for a sole chef to be responsible for every step of the process - conceiving the dishes, researching and testing, preparing the food, greeting and serving the guests.

It is a unique set up, distinctly different from a traditional restaurant.
With a dedicated development space for trialing new ideas, fermentation projects and vacuum distillation etc. The hope is to be very forward thinking but also very personal, friendly and open. Events run 3 to 4 times a weeks and are booked via the TOCK restaurant booking system.

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, 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.


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
(Tickets price has slightly increased from last year but this is mainly due to the fact the price now includes all booking & credit card fees).

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


Tickets will be released via TOCK

Dates will be announced as far in advance as possible. Then tickets will be released around three months before the event itself - so everyone has an equal chance of getting tickets.

Allergies / Dietary requirements

All the food served is vegetarian. 
I can cater for other dietary requirements but these must be discussed at the time of buying the ticket and well in advance of the event. 
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.


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 can not 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.

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

‘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’
