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.

23rd May - The Otter, Kegworth

A new pub for many of us although one or two had been here many years ago.

We were made very welcome by our waitress/server who showed us to our table and then carefully explained the intricacies of the gin and tonic menu to those who were indulging. We had pre-ordered our food as strangely the pub could apparently only cope with 7 people without pre-booking. Despite some last minute reshuffles and cancellations due to injury and illness nine of us sat down to eat. The pub is right alongside the River Soar with some lovely views although not from our table!. We shall have to ask for a view next time.

The starters came up promptly along with some nice looking nibbles for those not having a starter. That got us off to a good start and was followed by equally good main courses. The usual suspects followed that up with desserts and coffees and one or two others were tempted to indulge too.

The conversation was interrupted by periods of silence as everyone tucked in. Always a good sign. With good food, good wine and beers and excellent service, I suspect we shall be returning in the not too distant future.

Next month's Supper Club coincides with the History Group coach trip to Hampton Court on June 27th and so those who are on that trip may be late back and returning hungry. We have decided therefore to book Zamani's in Ashby who have said that they can feed us when we return. The coach is expected back in Ashby between 7.30 and 8 pm.

If anyone is interested in joining us, please contact Colin or Mike (details above) in advance so that we know the numbers attending.
