Since September 2015 I have been delighted run my monthly pop-up restaurant in partnership with local mental health charity Restore at their Garden Cafe on Cowley Road.
Restore is an Oxfordshire based charity providing rehabilitation, employment and training support for people with mental health problems. Their beautiful Garden Cafe is an oasis of tranquillity on the corner of Manzil Way and Cowley Road.
Appropriately for both the charitable nature of the venue and the experimental nature of the menu, the price for these events has typically been pay-what-you-want + a small corkage charge that goes directly to Restore. In upcoming months however I will also be experimenting with a ticketing system for some nights to try to combat an ongoing issue with no-shows and late cancellations. Ticket price is based on the average that people gave across the PWYW nights.
