The Kent Club is proud to announce that it will hold its annual dinner at Boodle’s private members’ club.  We can also reveal that RW Bro Stephen Fenton, Deputy Metropolitan Grand Master, will grace us with his presence as the guest of honor.

Boodle’s rightfully prides itself on the excellence of its kitchen and is preparing the following menu for us:

STARTER

Guineafowl and foie gras quenelle with Madeira sauce

MAIN

Spiced short rib of beef with champ potatoes and green and white asparagus

DESSERT

Baked vanilla and salted caramel cheesecake

Dinner will be accompanied by red and white wine. Tea, coffee, chocolates and port will be served with dessert.

A cash bar is available for those who would like to socialise with fellow members and guests after dinner.

Boodle’s is regarded as one of the most prestigious clubs in London, and counts many British aristocrats and notable politicians among its members.

It is the second oldest club in the world, with only White’s being older.  Ian Fleming is said to have based the Blades Club from his James Bond novels on Boodle’s (however, Boodle’s itself is referenced in the novels Moonraker and You Only Live Twice).  It is reputed that Beau Brummell’s last bet took place at the Club before he fled the country to France.
