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.

Thursday 25th October. Copt Oak Inn, Markfield

The last time we attempted to eat at the Copt Oak was with the lunch group 6 weeks ago. Unfortunately at the time they had a major water outage which meant that they couldn't operate and we were forced to go elsewhere at very short notice.

This time there were no such problems and we were welcomed to take our places. After a slight delay whilst we waited to see if everyone would arrive, orders were placed from a somewhat confusing but extensive menu of mostly grilled food and eventually everyone seemed to find what they wanted. The pub was fairly busy but despite that the food arrived reasonably promptly and almost everyone seemed to enjoy their meal (There was a small problem of a missing salad and a less than tender steak). The puddings were well received by those wanting something sticky and calorific but then isn't that what puddings are all about! The service was attentive and friendly and we all left suitably replete into the cold night air.
