There has been a change in the air, everybody has well and truly settled into the year, the nights are drawing in, and our summer clothes will soon be hiding in our wardrobes. Autumn has arrived!
The changing season for us means we are thinking up new autumn specials in the Odyssey Taverna, hosting more corporate events and magical autumn weddings. Autumn also sees a new promotion in the Odyssey Taverna ‘Meze Madness’ where diners benefit from 2 for 1 Meze plates for lunch Monday to Friday!
March is the last month to take advantage of our corporate deal, so book in your day delegate package quickly to take advantage of half hour of free Greek Meze after the event!
March also sees us celebrating Easter, and a friendly reminder that The Greek Club and Odyssey Taverna will be closed for the 4 days over the Easter period.
The countdown to Paniryi is on with official launch parties being held at The Greek Club this month! Our Greek head chef was approached to contribute an authentic Greek recipe for this year’s cookbook which we are giving to you today as a ‘sneak peak’ of what is yet to come!
From myself and the team at The Greek Club I hope you have a spectacular March!
