Pimms at Manchester House and Dinner at James Martins and Casino

Hi Guys

To start, meet in Manchester House in the FUNKY upstairs bar - great views of town! I will ensure we are on the guest list, as its quite difficult just to walk in here on a weekend night. Im thinking maybe jugs of Pimms or even a cheeky cocktail before moving on to James Martin's Restaurant, which is located inside Manchester 235 Casino, its about a 5 - 10 minute walk away.

Set Group Menu - we need to order from this, and pay a deposit - I am going to suggest a pre-payment as this is much easier on the night than having to calculate up what everyone owes - it can get time consuming and awkward and spoils nice finish to the night! If you can put your order below and send the pre - payment to [masked] (Paypal) If you need bank details, I can send this over. This is much easier and its great just having to pay for your drinks on the night!

If there isnt anything that grabs you for a main course, then just order what you think from the menu and I am sure they will change it onthe night - they are pretty flexible.

I can highly recommend the Thai Crab Risotto and the toffee pudding - they do the risotto as a main meal, but not sure if they will allow it on here, but can check.

To start

Thai crab risotto £7.95 

Lemon grass, kaffir lime and chilli

Roast chicken consommé £6.50 

Minestrone, smoked chicken

Sweet corn, brioche bread sauce

Hay baked Herdwick lamb £17.95
Braised faggot, Ramshackle sheep’s curd, pea and broad bean dressing

Pan-fried sea bream £15.95
Charred watermelon, ginger chutney, quinoa, buttered samphire

Roasted cauliflower cheese (v) £13.50
Quickes cheddar rarebit, purple sprouting broccoli, black truffle

8oz Cubmrian Lakeland Fells Sirloin £28.00

    As there is a car park next to Manchester 235 I think I will meet you there rather than go to Manchester House first. What time do you expect to get to 235? Mx

    Hi Guys
    Thanks to all that have paid up to now, can you list your selections underneath. If you havent paid as yet, can you do so by 20th July if possible, although the latest date would be 30th. Ideally I would like to get it paid at the restaurant but not to worry if you cant do it before 20th.
    I have updated my rsvp, as I am hoping to be able to get there..
