Yes thanks Ian for organising a most enjoyable evening at The Royal Oak Grin. It made a nice change to have our Christmas get together outside of the Bristol area. Full marks to Ben & Charles for turning up in their Lancias, hopefully I'll be able to attend next year in my Delta HF turbo! (Fingers crossed). Thanks also to Simon for giving me a lift  Wink.

Well you certainly did better than we did at on the Herts& Beds Christmas lunch at the Fox near Harpenden.
Two couples from our group had previously been there to try it out, and with favourable reports, The ' Festive Special 3 course Menu was booked for a party of 10.
On arrival, although the pub/ Restaurant was festivally decorated, there was nothing festive whatsoever on our table, not even a solitary cracker😕
when the waiter came to take our orders we were informed that due to them being let down by their supplier, there was no turkey ( never mind that a mile up the road there is an M& S food store, A waitrose, and others, any of which I'm sure would have been delighted to supply turkies), and as we soon found out, Christmas pudding, that had also fallen foul of said supplier, after a few comments we were asked what wine was like in compensation , a red was chosen, and a single bottle was offered for 10 of us😣 a few hoary pertinent comments later this was upped to 2 bottles. Talk about a let down.

You are all very welcome.

Apologies to you, Charles, I was unaware of your mode of transport for the evening. Had I known, I would have been very interested in having a closer look and trying to convince the good lady to consider one. She tends to like vehicles of German origin and food of Italian origin, so half way there! Grin
