Don't be fooled by the name, this group is for anyone interested in food, be it at Michelin Starred restaurant or any other sophisticated establishments that serve good and delicious food. These could be a gastro-pub or even a funky little cafe. We love food but not snobbish about it.
We will eat mostly in London but we may venture outside of London now and again. So, If you would like to get together with like-minded people, about once every month (or sooner) for brunch lunch or dinner at places that serves good food, please do join us.
Kindly note the following:
This is a non-profit making group and, as with all such things, there are rules:
Only members with a visible picture of themselves on their profile will be able to join. We like to see who we are eating with. If you remove your picture or you have a random picture of a celebrity, flower, cloud, quotes etc, you will be removed from the group or declined membership. That's just being fair to everyone else who does have a picture, panic not, our membership is not visible to non-members.
Our intention is to develop into one of the most thriving groups on Meetup as such there is a very strict policy with no-shows, there is no excuse to not let us know, no shows would be immediately removed from the group.
-----THE REALLY REALLY SMALL PRINT------
Please note that the restaurants and other venues we frequent operate a no show/will pay policy. So anyone wishing to book will have to pay for the set lunch menu or a deposit at least for a la crate menus.Where a deposit is required and paid for with the rsvp, the balance for the cost of the meal is due at the event. Please ensure that you can definitely make it as there can be NO REFUNDS, I'll say it again - NO REFUNDS - once the table is booked - if you cannot make the meet up you will have arrange for someone to take your place.
The policy above is to protect me from no shows in circumstances where the restaurant may still charge me, but also to protect the other diners as well, as it safeguards us collectively from people running out half way through the meal!.
PayPal fees applicable all transactions done through PayPal.
Drinks and any extras are just that, extra (unless stated otherwise). Gratuity of around 12.5% (as per the restaurant stipulation) is also added onto the bill on the day. Likewise any cover charge is added to your bill.
Mobile phones are definitely, absolutely, NOT acceptable at the dining table.
Please keep them in your bag or pocket or play with them elsewhere or you will be removed from the group- Simples!
Caveat - take pictures of the food if you must especially if helps bolster the image of the group.
Given some the places we will dining at please keep to the establishment's dress code as required. Do not spam our members, you and your spam will be removed pronto and reported to Meetup. If you are agreeable to the above then please join us. We will make you very welcome.
