The Professor will have : Minestrone, Sword Fish, and Cheese. I will have Melon, Turkey and Christmas Pud. I still think it's getting pricey.

Sorry Jackie, was only 25 last year but they have added extras to menu A this year and credit crunch or no life still goes on... splurge for a laugh with your mates! (please!)
Seem to remember that Tattie & Jon R were "dates" last year too ...mmh ... coincidence?

Are you trying to start a SE1 scandal about, Jon and Tattie, Plum?

I have to say I agree with Jackie R I think it is getting a bit too expensive. It has gone up each year and what started as excellent value is maybe not so good now. I know the food is always good and the room is lovely but a 3 course Christmas meal at the Britannia is only 16.50 and the food is good there too. Thats a big difference. I notice not so many people have put there name forward this year, usually places are snapped up and there is a waiting list, perhaps cost may be a factor I know it was almost for me. Maybe next year we should look to see if there is an alternative venue, it would be a shame if it is putting new people off joining us because of the cost.

That said Plum a big thank you for organizing this again and I am look forward to what I know will be a fun night out. See you all next week ..

Thanks again for organising this Plum
goats cheese, pork, trifle for me please.

Jac, you're behind the times, Tattie and I was so last year! ;)

What I think should be looked into is how MrsR is always unavailable for the SE1 Christmas night - either she plans things to not be there, or someone else plans so that she's not there... hmmm?

Plum, if this was Menu A were there other menus this year?

If we continue to use the venue, I think we should drive a harder bargain. Or, as Jac says, decamp elsewhere.

Melon turkey and trifle.

If a place comes up Stephen may be interested.

I have a day in exciting bits of the North West and will be coming straight to the Royal Oak. If I am late keep the melon warm!

Don't worry Sarah we won't be eating until 8.

Yes Jon, there was a menu B as well but that was more expensive.

16.50 at the Britannia sounds good, do they have an upstairs room or can they accomodate 18-20 of us downstairs? I can try to negotiate a rate for The Royal Oak next year but to be honest they have such high demand (I usually book end Sept to get a slot) that I don't know how great it would be.

I agree though that it is getting quite pricey and I will definitely investigate other venues for next year.

I am still waiting for menu choices from Boroughs Mark and Paul & Phoenix.

Thanks for your prompt replies chaps. Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday.

Above the Britannia pub is accomodation which has recently been sold off. I am sure that they could accomodate 20 people downstairs if you booked in advance. It was really pretty at book club last week - the Britannia has a lot of Christmas decorations.
