Lord's Dining Club

Experience culinary innovation as visionary chefs descend upon the Long Room, each showcasing their passion, talent and gastronomic imagination.

In the Iconic Long Room

Honouring the traditional pairing of food and cricket, Lord’s Dining Club couples Marylebone Cricket Club’s heritage with exciting, inventive cooking from some of the world’s most revered Michelin-starred chefs. 

Each event will take place in the Grade II*-listed Pavilion, including a cocktail reception with a selection of MCC canapés in the Long Room Bar – or in the famous Home Dressing Room for those who wish to indulge with a VIP package – before feasting on a menu involving multiple courses and a few culinary surprises in the historic surroundings of the Long Room. The evening will conclude with after dinner drinks.

The menus are exclusively designed by the evening’s host Michelin-starred chef and includes an exclusive reception followed by a four-course meal, paired with a matching wine flight, chosen to enhance the culinary delights on offer. A Q&A session, hosted by a cricketing legend, will delve into the chefs’ successful careers as well as exploring the menu choices guests will be enjoying on the evening.

Lord’s Dining Club experience is priced at £250 per person, including a reception in the Long Room bar. The VIP package is available at £385 per person and includes a reception in the Home Dressing Room.

This Year's Chefs


Tuesday 17 October 2023

With two Michelin stars to his name, Gareth is regarded as one of the country’s top and most unique chefs.

Gareth is the chef patron of Ynyshir in Powys, Wales, which was recently named as the UK’s best restaurant for a second successive year at the National Restaurant Awards thanks to its extraordinary Asian-influenced dishes. Gareth began as Head Chef in 2013, and it took only a year for him to earn his first Michelin star, before leading Ynyshir to become the first restaurant in Wales to achieve five AA rosettes. 2022 saw Gareth claim his second Michelin star.

After learning his trade at a series of Michelin-starred restaurants including Restaurant Sat Bains and Hambleton Hall, Gareth was awarded with the GQ chef of the year for 2023, securing his place as one of the world’s best.

After making his name as a winner of Gordon Ramsay’s F Word In 2010, Aktar has gone on to emerge as one of the most versatile and innovative chefs in the UK. His restaurant in Birmingham, Opheem, won its first Michelin star in 2019, becoming the first Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant in the UK outside of London to do so.

Aktar won series six of the BBC series, Great British Menu, and now regularly features as both a judge and mentor on Masterchef: The Professionals.

As well as Opheem, which was voted in the top 60 British restaurants at the National Restaurant Awards in 2023, Aktar set up his own food delivery service called ‘Aktar at Home’ in 2020 as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
