Hello y'all! I'm Nataleigh and I run Gumbo Galley- the vegetarian supperclub in London serving up southern flavours from my growing up in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Vegetarian and Southern are not usually terms you see together. I give a unique veggie spin on delicious food classics which are full of flavour and from the heart. Dishes such as cornbread, buttermilk biscuits, grits and gumbo will be yours to enjoy alongside other unique delights you won't find anywhere else in London.
Our venue is a luxurious private home in Fitzrovia. Oxford St. and Great Portland St. are the nearest tube stations. One long candle-lit subterranean dining table (seating 16) awaits to lead you on a journey to experience New Orleans French Quarter jazz, food and decadence. Come hungry!
I also cater for any special events and private bookings (work dinners, hen and stag dinners, birthdays, etc) so please get in touch so we can discuss your requirements to create a dinner to remember.

Superb food, location and hosting
I have eaten at Gumbo Galley on a number of occasions. Each time the food has been magnificent. The central London location is lovely - tucked out of the way with a secluded feel to it.
Guests are seated on one long table so you invariably get to meet new and interesting people. The chef, Nataleigh, is very warm and welcoming, striking the perfect balance between chatting with guests and informing them about the food, and leaving everyone to enjoy the evening of food, drink and conversation.
The event feels like a dinner party at a good friend's house.
The quality (and quantity!) of the food is excellent and very good value for money. If you like food from the Southern USA, then this is definitely for you.
The food is all vegetarian. If you're not vegetarian (I'm not), don't let this deter you.
My wife and I have been to Gumbo Galley 5 times now. We have taken many other friends with us, and our friends have also been repeat diners.
I can't recommend it highly enough!

This was my first ever Supper Club experience, and now I'm addicted! The Gumbo Gallery has a gorgeous, relaxing and welcoming setting which made you feel comfortable and at home straight away.
The food was exceptionally good! I'm vegetarian and Nataleigh managed to surprise me with her great variety and creativity in ingredients and spices! What a lovely meal!
And it's definitely not one of those places that you leave hungry, we were all about to explode and hardly managed to finish dessert!
Definitely recommend anyone to go to Gumbo Gallery - amazing night!

Wonderful food in a fantastic location. The food is delicious. I've been a couple of times now - once in March 2014, and again in May 2014. I'm looking forward to my next Gumbo Galley visit later this month (September).
Really friendly hosting means that it is a very relaxed an enjoyable evening.
I'd recommend it wholeheartedly, whether you're vegetarian or not (I'm not!)
Gumbo Galley, just great!
Vegetarian New Orleans

On descending into the candle-lit arched basement of a plush central London apartment, it was clear that this was not going to be a run of the mill supper club experience. This impression continued as we were greeted warmly by Nataleigh and an enviably stylish group of guests. Even better, a delicious glass of bourbon iced tea soon found its way into our hands.
As we introduced ourselves and sipped on iced-tea we were served muffeletta vol-au-vents, a sophisticated version of what is – we were told – a sandwich the size of your face in New Orleans. It was a challenge to turn down a second vol-au-vent but warnings from old hands that we might need to pace ourselves proved well-placed.
We headed over to an elegantly decorated communal dining table for the first course, traditional gumbo. This was comfort food at its best, lightly spiced and warm without a hint of stodge. For the more adventurous there was also the option to add homemade Louisiana hot sauce.
The second course was my stand-out favourite. A savoury New Orleans cream tea. The cornbread and buttermilk biscuits were melt-in-your mouth perfect, complemented neatly with homemade pickle and pimento cheese.
Next was deconstructed BLT – not something that immediately strikes you as a vegetarian dish – but Nataleigh had recreated a bacon-like texture and flavour with smoked coconut. Sounds weird, but works wonderfully, even the meat-eaters around the table were impressed.
BLT was followed by jambalaya and grits, neither of which I’d tried before, and both of which I’d happily have wolfed down a second portion of, if I hadn’t been incredibly full by this point, so it was a huge relied when Nataleigh told us there would be a little break before dessert. This was also a lovely opportunity to chat with the other guests.
Dinner was rounded off with beautifully light beignets (fried fritters) and coffee with chicory.
I’ve never had food like this in London, and it was such a joy that every course was vegetarian! Would absolutely recommend.
