Cheese and Wine Evening!

Meet in the hidden 19th Century cottage annexed to the Exeter Arms! Not many people even know of it's existence but there is a quaint, candle-lit cottage with stone floors and brick walls behind the Exeter Arms Pub. It is available for public use and can be booked for private parties.

There is no charge for the use of the venue provided that we purchase wine (or other drinks) from the bar. Please bring along something either cheese, biscuits, pickles/chutneys etc.  or a selection of each. But please don't go over the top or we will end up throwing most of it away!

There is limited parking in Exeter Place so the Assembly Rooms or Westfield car parks may be best for anyone driving there.

Hope to see you there... :-)

As we have reached the capacity for the room, the RSVPs are now closed.

    Guys. Sincere apologies. I've been useless at keeping on top of things recently. Everything has got on top of me, and I'm struggling to cope. Please don't remove me from the group I'll change all my RSVPs

    • Steve

      Rich. It would be better for you not to sign up to events until the actual day. Hopefully then you will know whether you can attend or not. If you sign up to events that are limited numbers and then not turn up, you may be taking the place of someone else that would have liked to have attended :-)

  • Chrissy S.

    Hi. Unfortunately due to health issues we wont be able to make this event. Sorry for the late notice but hopefully it will give someone on the waiting list the opportunity to go instead of us.

    Hi i think I will go and have a pint in the Bar and if there is any overflow from the cheese and wine I would be happy to meet up x

      Great idea, Gill! Anyone who's on the waiting list, let's meet up in the bar. How will we recognise each other?

      1 · January 7, 2014

    • Steve

      It's great that you are both so keen to come to your first event and I realise that it may be disappointing for you if you don't make the final list on Friday. However, try not to be too disappointed - we are a very active group and there are plenty more events that you can come along to (there are currently 34 upcoming events on the calendar!). Catherine - if you upload a clear photo of yourself to your profile, you may find that helps people to recognise you at events :-)

      January 7, 2014

  • Nick G.

    yea looks good,im going

    December 29, 2013

    • Steve

      Hi Nick. I'm afraid that we're up to capacity on the room at the moment but I'll put you on the waiting list should anyone drop out between now and the 10th. Watch this space!

      December 29, 2013

    • Steve

      You've made the list. see you on Friday :-)

    I'm new, so would love to make this my first social - please put me on the waiting list! Any way I could come along and stand if there's not enough seats? Or just come along to meet people without partaking in cheese? Haha, sorry my husband is out of town and I'm not doing well adjusting to being in the house by myself...

    January 7, 2014

    • Steve

      Hi Catherine. Welcome to the group. I have put you on the waiting list :-) I'm afraid it's not really a case of there not being enough seats ... or cheese, it's the venue that is tiny! You may end up on the main list by Friday evening, so keep an eye on the site but to be fair to all members, people move up from the waiting list in the order that they have gone on it.

    Are we bringing cheese,crackers, and pickles for ourselves, or are we sharing what we bring?

    January 4, 2014

    • Steve

      I think the general idea was to share ... but it's not compulsory :-)

      January 4, 2014

  • Lesley

    Hi Steve - can I join the waiting list for this one?

    January 4, 2014

      Hi John. Thanks for updating your rsvp :-)

      December 30, 2013

  • Sharon B.

    Is there a list of what type of cheese everyone is taking or do we just all take our favourite ?

    December 29, 2013

    • Steve

      We'll be doing an update nearer the event but I think we'll be leaving it open for people to bring what they want - but we'll need cheese, biscuits, pickles etc.

      December 29, 2013

    • Monica

      Opens good tho don't take too much cos it ends up getting chucked

    Please can you put me on the waiting liat, thank you x

    Just a quick 'Thank You' to everyone who has signed up so quickly in the past 24 hours since I posted this event. I knew it would be popular because the venue is so perfect for such an event.

    As a result of the huge response, I have been back to the Exeter Arms this evening and there is a limit of 25 persons for this room. As we have 16 signed up already, I have introduced an 'RSVP Limit' with a waiting list thereafter. So sign up quickly if you really do want to attend this unique evening!

    October 13, 2013

    • Rich

      There is no waitlist? I would have loved to have come along to this, but every time I have looked at it, it has been full, and there has been no waitlist :-(.

      November 9, 2013

    • Steve

      I have put you on the waiting list :-)

      November 9, 2013

  • Steve

    In Chris' absence, I am taking the opportunity to post an update on this event. It has been asked why the RSVPs have been closed and there isn't a waiting list. It would seem, for whatever reason, the automated waiting list function on this event will not enable, so presumably for this reason Chris had to close the RSVPs at 25. If you would like to join the "waiting list" please leave a comment saying so and I will put you on the waiting list manually. Thanks for your patience. Steve
