We are planning to hold a petanque friendly get together at lunchtime on Saturday 2nd January with the aim of forming another team to play during the summer as several people have expressed an interest. There will be free mulled wine and mince pies for all taking part and we will have our normal snack and full menu available should you be feeling hungry. If the weather is terrible, then we’ll just have the mulled wine and mince pies anyway and a gossip and we can take names of those interested in playing. Experience of petanque not necessary, just a sense of humour, others more knowledgeable of these matters can show you how to play! Everybody is welcome.
We are planning to start doing “senior” lunches every Wednesday lunchtime starting on Wednesday 2nd December between 12.00 p.m. and 2.00 p.m.. Age will not be mentioned or proof required, if you feel “senior” (or a recycled teenager) you are most welcome! The normal lunchtime menu will have a 25% discount for this offer. If you know of any other seniors who are not computer whizzes, please do pass this on to them.
The December quiz Christmas Special is now nearly full so book early to avoid disappointment. Wednesday 16th December at 7.15 for 7.30 p.m. £6 per head including a hot meal. Any size teams can take part.
I am pleased to say the four part group “Kokopelli” have agreed to play on New Year’s Eve. More details to follow. We are taking restaurant bookings for the earlier part of the evening – dress is optional but those who would like to wear “posh frocks” or dinner jackets either for dinner or just a New Year drink are very welcome to raise the tone. There is no charge for the music or bar, just if you book dinner.
Finally, the restaurant is fully booked on some days during December for christmas parties etc and the diary is filling up fast. I will try and keep the website updated with which days it is full, but please feel free to phone and check if you are unsure of availability. We always aim to serve meals in the bar if the restaurant is full but space is, of course, limited there.
Kind regards, Fiona.
