Happy New Year from The Secret Menu

The Secret Menu

The Retrial




The Secret Menu, in partnership with Middlesbrough Town Hall,  invites diners to join them at - The Retrial.

Following the sell out of Incarcerated - due to take place on November 22nd, Sean & Paul have continued their partnership with Middlesbrough Town Hall, and are offering diners the opportunity to another of the hidden gems within Middlesbrough Town Hall,

The Old Courthouse

The Old Courthouse will be turned into a culinary trial as diners are invited to dine where previously the jury, counsel and press would have sat - on the benches, right in the thick of the action.

Diners in for a real surprise

This dining experience promises to be the most engaging and entertaining yet.

Keeping to the raw concept - where above all else, diners will not know the menu until each dish is presented, there are some treats in store for diners at this experience - but Sean & Paul are keeping tight lipped about this.

The Retrial will see guests served 12 smaller, tapas style, courses,. Priced at £65 per head.

When & Booking

The Retrial will be held on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th January 2020 with guest arrival by 19:00.

Previous diners, VIP Club Members and those guests who made booking requests for Incarcerated but missed out, will be given early bird booking opportunities, after which time any remaining spaces will be placed on general sale via this website.

All guests will be asked to complete the booking form which will also ask for any allergies/dislikes.  Options will not be available, therefore this dining experience would not be suitable for any guests who advise of allergies, strong dislikes or dietary requirements which may be components of the menu - we will confirm suitability based on the information supplied on the booking form.  

Additional Information

Due to the anticipated interest in this event, bookings will be limited to a maximum of FOUR guests per booking.  All bookings must be in multiples of two (no odd bookings).

Once payment is received, our standard booking terms (available via the link at the bottom of our website) are deemed to have been accepted.  

This menu will not be suitable for vegan or vegetarian diners.

The Secret Menu will not be responsible where diners have allergies or dislikes/beliefs which have not been communicated and they appear on the menu.  There are no alternative options, all diners are served the same meal.
