For people who enjoy eating out... evening meals, Sunday lunches or lazy weekend brunches and of course Afternoon Tea. Our main aim is create a fun, friendly group of people who enjoy socialising over great food, we try to stay away from chains as there are so many amazing independent restaurants that offer great food and service.
If you've just joined Meetup or just haven't got around to attending an event before, please don't be shy! We've all been there and its terrifying the 1st time but you'll soon realise we're a friendly bunch and we're all just out to enjoy good food and have a laugh with great company!
To cover the cost of the group, there will be a charge of £1 per person for each meetup attended which will be collected at the event. This helps to cover the site membership fees.
We ask that you treat all members in the group as you would wish to be treated yourself. This includes letting people know if you can no longer make an event, it saves the people who do attend from having to wait to see if you're going to turn up before ordering their food and the hosts embarrasment of sitting on a table too large for the group. 1 no show, you'll be bumped to the wait list (if there is one) for any future event you're signed up for, 2 no shows will result in you being removed from the group.
We are not a dating group, we don't encourage couples to come along as this can change the dynamic of the events, the group is aimed at people who want to make new friendships and enjoy good food. Please have a face photo on your profile so we recognise you at your first event.
If you fail to show up for 2 events you've committed to with no communication or if you commit, then pull out of events at the last minute on 5 occasions you will be removed from the group to ensure we keep the attendance as high as possible and prevent extra work for our hosts.
