A unique experience diner full of stories at Talbot House

Enjoy your meal...

Enjoy the delicious Belgian cuisine of Talbot House during a night full of stories. All meals have a local touch in this British home from home. The five-course meal is served in the historic Dining room of the 250-year-old mansion.

In between the delicious meals, we'll immerse you in the 'Tales of Talbot House'. We'll explore our lively museum and her rich stories together and perhaps you'll even stay the night?

A Dinner at Tubby's didn't just occur suddenly. Our founding father, Padre Tubby Clayton, invited numerous guests on a daily basis. Below, you can find the inspiration for Dinner at Tubby's

Three stories to choose from

During Dinner at Tubby's, we'll take you with on the stories of Talbot House during the Great War but also during the years following that. We'll walk you through our different exhibitions and the House itself. Using unique artifacts, we'll gradually build up the story. This is our standard story and available throughout the year.

You'll arrive in a cozy British Christmas atmosphere with Christmas at Tubby's. You'll be able to enjoy real classics such as Christmas cake, Christmas Turkey, Yorkshire Pudding and last but not least, Single Malt Whiskey. Our storyteller will take you along to a number of very special locations in our lively museum. You'll get to hear the stories of Christmas parties organized for the children of Poperinge during both World Wars. Stories of Talbotousians during the famous ...  but also the funny stories of the Queen's Westminster Rifles in their chapel.

Fancy a love story? In Cheerio Darling, we'll tell you all about the love story that Geoffrey and Edith ended up in! Even though they saw each other only 4 times in real life, they in love instantly! Our storytellers will read a selection of the famous love letters while Patricia and matt revive the music mentioned in the letters. This masterpiece takes you on a rollercoaster of romance, courage and adventure.
