Christmas Social: no reading required!

Come along for a Christmas social, from 7 onwards.  No reading required for this one, just a chance for us to meet up, chat and generally be festive!  If you wish to talk about books, I'm sure no one would mind. 

This pub doesn't do food, although there was talk of possibly being able to order pizza in.  The pub is, however, lovely and always has a fab selection of beers. 

Ho ho ho see you all soon!

    Glad it was a good one! I was stuck at the museum till 8 because the alarms wouldn't set in one of our sites. Seems like trains aren't the only things in Britain without taking the likelihood of slightly-less-than-balmy weather into account! Yes please to doing this again in the new year :)

      Agreed :) BTW it was Simon and me that beeped you at the traffic lights by the prudential building - we waved but don't think you saw us

    Just to add I was there last night and it is accessible, there is a car park to the rear but it is limited. On street parking is mostly (if not all) permit holders only. They also seemed to be serving food (which I thought they only did on Sunday) but you could certainly get soup behind the bar. In the past you could order in here but we may have to ask, it may even be possible reserve a table/space for all as this happened last night!

    Also can my partner along?

      Thanks for scoping it out Ali! I'll pop in this weekend and see if we can book a table to have a base from. I have parked for free outside on the street before, I think there may be a 2 hour limit. Not sure of the details though. The side door is steps and the front door is flat and accessible. I'll post on here if I do manage to book a table. And yes, do bring other halves too!

    Look forward to meeting you. I signed up a few months ago but the usual meetings clash with my other book group!
