The club at The House of St Barnabas is a private memberís club with a difference; it is not-for-profit, with all proceeds going to help homeless people create a more secure future.

The House of St Barnabasí Founding Member is none other than Scottish actor Brian Cox, whose vision has enabled the charity to help many homeless people get back into work. The House of St Barnabas can be found in a gorgeous Grade 1 listed house in the heart of Soho.

Now, having experienced a number of private memberís clubs in London, itís fair to say that a lot of them have recently become far too overcrowded. The same cannot be said for The House of St Barnabas; which genuinely felt like an authentic private memberís club.

ďThis is a private memberís club thatís well worth being a member of.Ē

When we arrived at the club, we knocked on the front door and were greeted and shown to the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. The relaxed atmosphere in the bar allowed us to watch the barman create our cocktails, which was great pre-dinner entertainment.

The cocktails we chose included a Tale of two Gimlets, which was a refreshing gin based blend. We also went for a Velvet Push, which was a fruity tequila based cocktails with blackberries and goji liquor. These cocktails were beautifully present and expertly made. We were suitably impressed.

Following our cocktails we were shown through to our table. The restaurant area itself boasts beautiful interiors, and our friendly waiter was only too happy to guide us through. We were very excited to try the foodÖ

We began our meal with a selection of breads, including artisan sour dough, homemade focaccia and a gorgeous hazelnut dukkah. Shortly after, our starters arrived, and consisted of the Ribollita (a classic Tuscan soup), and the 3 beetroot salad with orange and feta.

Following our starters, our main courses were made up of the braised lamb with polenta and chanterelles and the char grilled skirt steak with chimichurri and skin-on chips. We also had a side of the zucchini fritters.

The wine list at The House of St Barnabas is very good, and we enjoyed a bottle of the ĎHatterís Hillí Marlborough Pinot Noir.

To eat at The House of St Barnabas one must be a member, and we can pay no greater compliment than to say that after our meal, we are very tempted to sign the forms there and then. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, we couldnít have asked for a better experience. If youíre looking for a truly exclusive experience with stunning food, you need look no further. Not only do you get five star treatment, youíre safe in the knowledge that your money is going to a good cause. This is a private memberís club thatís well worth being a member of.
