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.

28th April

This month we met at the Mill Wheel at Hartshorne which the Lunch group met at last November. We had pre-ordered our food and so once drinks were served the starters arrived quite quickly, which seemed to be enjoyed by all those who had them. Mains arrived shortly after that and it seemed that we would be finished by 8.15! Nevertheless we took our time to enjoy the food and company before some of us ordered the very tempting desserts. Colin and Sharon had a little wait while the chef rustled up the large quantities of custard ordered. Meanwhile we were entertained by the frequent rumbling of the mill wheel which started up every few minutes. It seems it is turned over by an electric motor and he water is splashed over it!
We were again the only diners in the upstairs restaurant area. It would seem that the combination of pandemic and inflation are really affecting the hospitality trade.
Despite the lack of other eaters, we all had a good time and the conversations flowed as if powered by the water wheel.
