The Supper Club

Organisers:  Colin Ellis - supper@ashbyu3a.co.uk - phone 01530 272592
and 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 November – The George and Dragon, Thringstone

This month we had a full house of 14 members and 3 guests ready to taste the food at the George and Dragon.

We had pre-ordered and once everyone had arrived the starters were promptly served. 12 had ordered starters and the goats cheese and walnut salad proved particularly popular with 7 opting for it. And very nice it was too. Mains followed quick quickly after with excellent fuss-free service. Most agreed that the portions were very generous, which was probably the only real complaint! Much better to have too much than too little, but one or two people felt somewhat overwhelmed.

Orders were taken for desserts and amazingly some people actually had room for them. There was quite a long wait for them but they were well worth waiting for. Beautifully plated up, large and apparently very tasty (I had chosen to pass on dessert!). No complaints there.

A very nice evening was had by all, and for once we had no problems with the bill. It all tallied up correctly at the end. Good food, excellent service and good company. What more could you want.
