Latest news from the lunch group

Lunch Group

The Lunch Group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 12 noon (unless otherwise stated) at a different restaurant each month. The menus vary in price and content but hopefully average out over the year at a reasonable cost. It is an opportunity for members to meet together socially and try out different restaurants which, as individuals, they may not have had the chance to try before. We always have a quiz which is usually related to the venue or its theme. We hope you will find something of interest to your “taste” and look forward to meeting up with you each month. I would love to hear about your recommendations for reasonably priced venues as we have been going for nearly eleven years and are running out of new venues!

When putting your name down, if the menu is available, either at the meeting or on the website, could you please indicate your menu choices at that time. Please note that at our lunch group visits members should purchase their own drinks at the bar as adding everyone’s drinks to the food menu causes a lot of administration problems. Many thanks.

On November 27th we went to George’s on Queen Street, Nottingham for our “Fish & Chips” fix! Our Christmas lunch will be at our usual venue, The Albert Hall on Wednesday, 18th December. This year has just flown by! So in January (22nd) we shall make a return visit to our old favourite, Arunothai, in Hucknall. Pre-orders please at the November and December meetings.

On October 23rd we visited the Old Spot at Daybrook which is now called The Cooper’s Brook. This is a Greene King pub and has been refurbished to a very high standard – and the food was okay too.

On November 27th we go to George’s on Queen Street, Nottingham.

Our Christmas lunch will be at our usual venue, The Albert Hall, on Wednesday, 18th December. This year has just flown by!

Please note that, at our lunch group visits, members should purchase their own drinks at the bar as adding everyone’s drinks to the food menu causes a lot of administration problems for me. Many thanks.

Please also note that the annual £1 administration fee was due in July.

Unfortunately we had to cancel the September 25th visit to Oliver’s Pub & Kitchen at Eastwood as the menu was received too late for our September meeting and it was way above what we normally pay for lunch.

On October 23rd we will see what they have done to the Old Spot at Daybrook which is now called The Cooper’s Brook. I must have your menu choices which are listed in a separate post on the U3A website.

Then on November 27th we shall try George’s on Queen Street, Nottingham. I shall need a £3 deposit for this lunch please at the October meeting.

Our Christmas lunch will be at our usual venue, The Albert Hall on Wednesday, 18th December and I shall be taking the balance of monies due at the October & November meetings. The menus for these lunches are also on the website.
Please also note that the annual £1 administration fee was due in July.
