Hello everyone
I know we haven't even had Bonfire Night yet but Plum has been in touch with Royal Oak and booked the upstairs room for the annual Christmas gathering!
It's the same menu and price as last year. If you can bear to think about Christmas already and want to come, please rsvp asap!

I have no idea what the veggie options are on Menus B and C and I guess we need to establish by majority vote what price bracket we want to be in! And there is a maximum room capacity of about 20 [shout if I'm wrong there] so obviously first come first served ...

Blimey, it's complicated isn't it!

Can anyone eat three courses at The Oak and walk out afterwards? (I'll check with Mrs I. We're off on hols just after that, so it'd be great to fit in a Christmas dinner)

...if you press it, they will come.
Tattie Tuesday 16 October 2007 2.35pm
Yes please - for 2! Have to let you know the menu option later though.....
Jac Tuesday 16 October 2007 2.53pm
There has been a bit of confusion in the past so just to make it clear for anyone who would like to come that hasnt been in the past we all have to choose from the same menu A B or C. In the past we have gone with option A, which has always proven to be excellent value. So at this stage it just decideing a weather or not we want to stick with that or choose from a different menu.


It's been fun in the past so you can put Mr Jac and me on the list. As for walking afterwards I think its more like a stagger

I'm no vegetarian, but efore choosing menu "C", may I suggest you look at this:

Last year's menu A was good, so vote for it again!

I'll be along. Menu 1 for me...simple and Christmassy.

Menu A was really good last few times. So Menu A for me + 1. (Olly)

And well done to Plum for kicking off the process - Friday is a great coup !
