The Noble Vine was amazing at providing great vegan food for our August meet, so we're keeping with it for September and October!
This is also listed on other groups, and offline TWandKTveg members might join us.

Hi Lesley. Sorry I won't be able to come tomorrow after all :-( . I am on house-sitting duties and finances are tight this weekend anyway. Shame, as the menu sounds wonderful, like last time! They say they are struggling for vegan desserts - I think I'll send them my chocolate mousse recipe, I imagine they could make that quite easily! Maybe they can then do it for the next meet-up there. the one the day after your birthday. I am really hoping to be at that one, so see you all then.

Oh yes pls do send them that idea for a dessert, I am not much of a cook and they didn't say until yesterday that they were struggling!

It would be great for next month!
Do you have an email address for Steve Lesley? Or is it just the generic email address that is published on their website home page? If I send a recipe I want to make sure it gets to the right person, that it doesn't just get lost somewhere!
[masked] seems to be a good one to use, Steve always responds, but I'd advise not using the webform as they never responded to my emails coming via that at first and I had almost lost all hope that they were interested! Once I had phoned to establish contact they were very good and all was sorted out using email but I am not sure if the webform is working on their site.

Info from Steve at the pub about food offered for tomorrow:
Sorry its taken so long for this, it’s been a manic day here.
Here are the vegan friendly options on our menu tomorrow:
Walnut Pate served with toasted ciabatta and apple & cranberry chutneyVegan Roast Dinner with an apricot, almond & mushroom nut roast, served with roast potatoes, seasonal veg and vegan friendly gravyThai Green CurryAll of the salads with exception to the chicken Caesar can be made vegan friendly with minimal modificationThe popular 5 bean chilli.
We are still struggling for vegan desserts, any suggestions would be gratefully received!
I can't wait 'til next month, I hope the menu is just as exciting :-)
Me too! I am going to send them one or two vegan dessert recipes, so that hopefully we may be able to have a sweet course as well next month :-)

Excellent meetup. Nice to meet new like-minded people.

Lovely to meet you Marion!
Where how do I find everyone? And it's 1pm meetup? Do I ask for a table in anyone's name. Sorry 1st time
1 · September 28, 2013
You can ask for me or just mention the vegetarian and vegan group and you should be directed to us, call me on my mobile if you have any problems, that's why I put it in the info at the top [masked]
They have a few tables set aside at the back of the pub in a specific area, last time it was labelled with either vegan/vegetarian or I think maybe with my name. Look forward to seeing you.
Rita are you not coming now? What happened? Please could you let me know, and if you can come next month then. This pub is really worth a go, I assure you.
So far it's just you and me attending this Lesley! :-S . Let's hope we get a few more by Sunday! I presume you have invited all the normal crowd, etc? I don't know how to invite people here on Meet Up! Can someone advise me how to do it?

Marion is also coming and possibly one or two other people who have not been before. Of course everyone on Meetup does get notified of events as far as I know. If you want to send a personal message to anyone on meetup you can when you get the profile up there is usually a way to PM them, although a few ppl do not allow PMs. Feel free to PM anyone you like to remind them though.

The reason you do not see Marion listed is she replied on the families group page for this event.
Ah right thanks. Just Marion then, not any of the other people who were there last time? Shame. Ah well, if we get a couple of newbies, that should be good. I know you always say not many turn up to these end-of-month pub meet ups, so it seems like last month's was quite impressive!
Sorry, I'm a 'maybe' again... still hoping to try out The Noble Vine.

If you want to commit to a specific month, but cannot commit very often to coming, how about 27th Oct as that is the day after my birthday?
1 · August 27, 2013
Yes, I had that in mind, I'll ask Napak if she's free to join us.
0 · August 27, 2013
Or, rather, if she can try to take the day off, she'll not likely get her rota to the last minute!
Unfortunately Napak wasn't able to request leave, and she won't likely get her October rota 'til the end of next week (they're supposed to get it two weeks in advance... never happens!).
0 · September 21, 2013
Hope you can make it to the next one, 29 September, Richard, even if Napak can't. Shame the way they mess her about with her rotas! I am planning to be at the Noble Vine next Sunday - I was really impressed with it last month, and want to continue supporting them, as they made a huge effort! Great food and a nice pub.
Terrible that they mess her about so badly! Hope you can both make it for October the day after my birthday even if not for September! Did she also not get Saturday off next weekend to join you in Kingston? Even if ppl do not get all their requested days off which is understandable if too many want the same Sat or Sun, they should always be able to let them know in good time!
We'll both be joining you in October, to help celebrate Lesley's birthday (sorry we missed yours Maggie). Sadly, Napak's rota was changed so she won't be coming to Kingston.
Oh well hopefully you and Napak can have a day out in Kingston yourselves without a huge group, and visit some of the places there, which would be nice for you, now you have such a long list of vegan-friendly places. Great that we will see you in October anyway.

I havnt been to one these in ages , I will be the first to admit ive not been active for a while , put me down as a maybe.
2 · September 18, 2013
I'll give a provisional Yes to this one (in other words a Maybe) and will certainly come if I can. It definitely makes it easier for me, as it is nearer than the Hand and Flower, for example.
Next: Invite friends
This is your group, please do suggest relevant events; visiting a vegan-friendly venue, and fancy some possible company, why not make it a Meetup?!
I recommend turning off unnecessary email notifications, and using your Meetup calendar. See Pages for other advice, such as updating your location, and running a buying group.
We're proud to host events for Worcester Park (WPveg), Kingston and Richmond (KRveg), East (ESveg), North (NSveg) and Twickenham and North (TWandKTveg) Surrey groups, and Croydon (CVS), Guildford (GVS) and University of Surrey (UniSveg) veg socs, amongst others.
I hope you enjoy the group, if you do please tell your friends, if you don't please tell me!
P.S. Thanks to Robb for 'hosting' us; 'Organizer dues' cover three groups, so I pay him £40 a year. Likewise, thank you to the Dove family, for generously covering half of 2016's costs.
