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 22nd November. Smisby Arms

The Smisby Arms welcomed 14 members of the Supper Club for November. We were all seated on one long table allowing plenty of conversation. When the starters arrived, some people thought they must be main courses because of the size. Then they saw the real main courses! However that didn't deter seasoned Supper Club members and (almost) everything was eaten and enjoyed. A few heroic gourmands even managed a pudding.

We will not be meeting in December as it would fall on the day after Boxing Day and in January the Burns Night Supper is only two days after our usual date, so we shall join the Burns revellers at the Golf Club. Tickets for that are available from Bill Wilson at the Dec 11th monthly meeting. £27 including wine.
