Dining with Strangers

Speed Dating with Fortnum's at The Royal Exchange

This Valentine's Day, we've teamed up with leading speed-dating company, Original Dating, to bring like-minded individuals together over three themed evenings over your favourite tastes and tipples. Whether you abide by a plant-based diet, favour the Fortnum’s classics or have a passion for cheese and wine, Dining with Strangers promises a glittering setting, a convivial atmosphere, and Fortnum’s specially curated food and drink to help you navigate any lulls in conversation.

Set within the Instagram-worthy surroundings of our Bar & Restaurant at The Royal Exchange, you can break bread (and more) with fellow foodies over six delicious bites, washed down with three perfect drinks pairings. And as always, Tuesday and Thursday will also have the added ambience of live music.
