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.

It was nice to drive out to the pub in in daylight, sunshine even, for the first time this year. Spring is here at last. Because the History Group were on an awayday that afternoon and because of the proximity to Easter we were down to just nine members. Two of them, Colin and Caryl, are new to Ashby U3A and trying out the Supper Club hospitality. I hope we didn't let them down.

The pub was a little quiet, again probably due to the closeness to Easter, but it made a change from some of the noisier venues we have been to before and we could all hear each other to talk to.

There was ample choice on the menu and specials board for everyone to find just what they fancied and the food all came up looking delicious, which it was. As ever, the usual suspects managed to get through three courses while most at least managed a dessert. Always a good sign of good food. We have been here before with the lunch group and the evening meals were as good as lunchtimes.

Next month (May 23rd) we shall be trying somewhere new to most of us - "The Otter" just south of Kegworth on the A6 and which backs on to the River Soar. Hopefully it will live up to expectations.
