What are Dinner Dates events like?

The first thing is that we provide events to remember - ones that you'll look forward to and look back on as special occasions. Our dinner parties, black-tie balls and buffets are held in well-known, fashionable restaurants, hotels and exclusive private members' clubs. They all provide a high standard of food and service, and most have live music or a disco for those who want to dance

Why should I join Dinner Dates?

Variety - once you're a member, you can attend as many functions as you like. Meeting people - equal numbers of men and women at each dinner event. Personal service - you'll be greeted personally at each event, made to feel welcome and introduced to your fellow guests. The Dinner Dates host is there to make sure that everyone has a great time and deal with any queries. Security - our format provides peace of mind. We never release any of our members' details unless they tell us to. Discretion - if we leave a message for you it will be to call back a member of our staff by individual name and telephone number. No mention of Dinner Dates is ever made, and we never identify ourselves as Dinner Dates when we answer our office telephone calls.
