How can I become a member?

Just click the JOIN NOW button below, fill out the form and click through to pay securely. We’ll be in touch to verify your ID, then your membership will be activated and you can register for dinners.

Do I need to be a paid member to register and attend dinner?

Yes you need to be a member with A Table for Six, and have your ID verified before attending an event.

When are the dinners held?

The majority of our dinner events take place on Saturday evenings, so there’s plenty of time to get ready and have a fun and relaxing weekend.

What time do the dinners typically start?

Usually restaurants are booked for 7:30pm. Occasionally, it may be 7pm or 8pm. We will let you know the exact time when you’re confirmed for the dinner.

How do I register for a dinner?

Visit our events page, where you’ll see all our upcoming dinners. Filter for your city and age group, click on an event that appeals to you and click the REGISTER YOUR INTEREST button. This will mean you are now listed as an ‘Expression of Interest’, you are not confirmed yet.

How are participants selected for dinners?

Our Events Team gather all the registrations, create a final list, ensuring a suitable table, for a great evening of conversation and connection. There are limited seats, with a focus on gender balance and a suitable mix, so the process requires some sorting.

How do you create tables with the right mix?

There are 2 ways we create the best tables. Firstly members register interest to attend dinners they choose. Secondly (if there's a spot) we send out invitations by text to suitable singles from our member database. It's an event planning puzzle and we work hard to create the right mix of six!

How and when will I know if I'm confirmed for a dinner?

Once our final guest list is ready, our Events Team will send a confirmation email and a text message to let you know you're on the guest list. This will happen mid-week before the event. If you don’t get a seat at the table, we will notify you by email 2-3 days before the event. In this case we encourage you to list for the next event that suits you.

How do I locate our table at the restaurant?

We will let you know the surname that the booking is made under. Please arrive on time, ready for a fun night out!

How is the dinner paid for?

As with any dinner with friends you can agree at the end to either split the bill 6 ways, or pay individually (if people have ordered different drinks or dishes). It’s up to you!

How do I request another member’s phone number after an event?

After each event, our Events Team will email you, seeking feedback. In this email you can request member phone numbers. We ask that members don’t swap numbers in front of others at the table, out of respect. Our phone number swapping service removes any awkwardness and ensures mutual interest.

How many dinners can I attend with my 12-month membership?

Our commitment is for you to be able to attend at least 6 dinners or events over the course of a year. Your dinners are likely to be spread out over time (not successive Saturdays), as we rely on brand new members joining each month. We work hard to find new singles and create table combinations that give every person an equal opportunity to meet others as often as possible. If you don’t get on to a table please register for the next dinner that appeals and you’ll be prioritised.

How many members of the opposite gender will I meet?

There’s always a mix of new and existing members at dinner. We plan for you to meet 2 new members of the opposite sex. There may be other members at the table you have met. Please note that at times there may be late cancellations and this may alter the numbers of both genders.

Can I attend a trial dinner or event before committing?

Unfortunately, no. All guests must be a verified member to maintain fairness and ensure every guest has been ID checked.

Can I bring a friend?

Your single friend is most welcome to attend dinners, but they will need to be a paid and verified member to attend. We welcome referrals!

Can I attend dinners in other cities?

Yes! Register your interest, and if a suitable group forms, we'll send confirmation with all the details.

Is A Table For Six a matchmaking service?

A Table for Six provides opportunities for singles to meet other genuine singles in small social groups. We don’t provide online introductions or one-to-one dates.

Individuals have been ID checked. Members who invest and opt for this experience tend to share similar interests and values, enjoy dining out and meeting other singles.

Does A Table For Six conduct screening?
