A DINING experience with a difference has been launched aboard super sloop Spider T berthed at Keadby Lock.

On a cold December evening with thick slabs of ice still floating in the Stainforth & Keadby Canal, guests gathered for the inaugural ‘meeting’ of The Old Maritime Secret Supper Club.

Renowned local chef Nigel Brown, whose Cookery Academy is based at The Ropewalk in Barton-upon-Humber, demonstrated his skills in the galley of the beautifully restored sloop which was itself launched at New Holland in 1926.

The evening was hosted by Spider T’s owners Mal and Val Nicholson, who have lovingly restored this treasure of the national historic fleet, with Nigel Brown and Lisa Barker demonstrating and serving the delicacies prepared on the galley’s Rayburn range.

Guests included members of the Humber Keel and Sloop Preservation Society and the Humber Yawl Club which are both dedicated to preserving traditional craft of the estuary in their traditional waters.

With its Edwardian ambience, the Spider T’s dining room will be a ‘secret’ rendezvous for that special occasion, be it a private or corporate event, catering for up to 12 people for whom Nigel will demonstrate his cooking skills using locally sourced foods.
