Nine nights were sold out in April and May, with customers giving “overwhelmingly positive feedback” over the £35-a-head three-course meal.

Karen Himsworth, manager of Waitrose Cookery School which provided the chefs, said: “There is a lot for us to consider before we decide if we can take it forward, but the experience has been incredibly encouraging.”

She said not all branches had space for a supper club and location would be an important factor.

She added: “All our stores are different, so we need to think about things such as menu choice.”

The supper clubs, which have also been trialled at Newbury, Berks, and Salisbury, Wilts, ­featured mood lighting and jazz.
