The Supper Club

Co-ordinators:  Colin Ellis - supper@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01530 272592
or Mike Stow - phone 01530 469152

This group aims to visit local pubs and restaurants for an evening meal and and social conversation. We normally meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 7 pm for 7.30 (This is a fortnight away from the Lunch Group). We will jointly decide on venues.

Everyone is welcome, all we ask is that you sign the sheet by the display board at the monthly meeting prior to the supper, or contact Colin or Mike, by phone or by email, so we can book the relevant number of seats.

If anyone is interested in coming along, but has been discouraged by problems with transport, it may be possible to arrange lifts. Please contact Colin or Mike on the numbers or emails above.

There may sometimes be a limit on numbers depending on the venue's ability to cater for larger numbers, in which case places will be offered strictly on a first come, first served basis. There may also need to be a cut-off date for bookings. This will be stated on the bookings list.

22nd August, The Dragon at Willington

A select group of eight arrived at the Dragon to find that it was very well patronised for a Thursday evening. There was quite a buzz about the place without it getting too noisy. Several of us went for the excellently priced Set Menu while others went off-piste and tackled the full menu.

The portions were very generous without being ridiculously huge as sometimes happens. All the food looked excellent and was served nicely and I heard no complaints. The fish and chips in particular came in for much praise. The desserts were also much-appreciated.

With the smaller number round the table, conversation was a bit easier and our newcomers were welcomed and able to join in.

Our next meal will be at the much-lauded Angel in Swadlincote on Sept 26th 7 for 7.30pm
