Please offer recommendations. Previous meets have included for example a meal at a Mexican restaurant followed by drinks at one or more local pubs. That is not included in the entrance fee for the meet!
The meet is often followed by dinner in an Indian restaurant which usually starts fairly soon after the close of the meet at 18:00. Suggestions for a suitable venue would be welcomed.
Given the change in venue for this meet we may well take a communal trip on the train, and order takeaway.
There is no visit arranged to date.
