TLF Christmas Dinner


Bibs

Recommended Posts

Getting in before they put the decorations up in the shops, the TLF Christmas Dinner will be on Saturday 12th December. 

Menu as below and we'll need choices in advance as ever but the roast spuds will be to die for as ever as we're back for the 3rd year at the wonderful Nevill Bull in Birling, Kent.

A good place to stay locally is the Premier Inn in Leybourne and I'll ferry people to and from the hotel to the pub before dinner as usual, no need for cabs. (You can make your own way back there but it's under 5 mins in a cab, I'll not be driving later in the night!)

Rooms are currently £35/night.

We'll be in the pub for 7pm for an 8pm meal.

Just to add to Brian's (bingoking) note the LEGS contingent (9-12) are booked into the suggested Premier Inn arriving around 17:00 I guess at hotel.  Breakfast booked as last time Andrew & I attended we seemed have a good gang together again for breakfast before heading home.  

 

If any other LEGS based folk are considering it we are flying down with BA at 14:05 out of EDI and and back with Sleazy Jet at 15:10 all via Gatwick due to time of year.  Approx. cost for flights/hire car(shared 4 ways) and hotel are about £135 so only other costs are meal and car parking at EDI for a day.

 

Looking forward to seeing old faces and meeting new faces and putting to screen names.

Not Sure I'm allowed in that Premier Inn. Myself, Cliff, Kim and Yasuo may have got ourselves in a little trouble last year!

 

And once again I will be attending after my works Christmas party at the Grove. So once again will be hung over like a bugger!

He definitely headbutted the floor, broke a glass and generally fell off his chair.

 

Sadly, it was that bottle of Rum I had bought for you that we drank....and the buys brought some other stuff......what was it we were drinking Yasuo? Vodka I think!

Oh Yes Kimbers, vaguely remembers it. Especially the headbanging and the 4 times knocking on the door!

Let's try it again!

We were in the room next door. Yes there was a big bang but no head appeared through the wall and we didnt complain. 

In fact we had a very good nights sleep. Must admit though I thought is was Kimbers. We look forward to another good evening. The following month I will be 70 so I must try to retire soon, but then those Lotus bits are not cheap.

Isn't a Christmas Dinner one of those things in a plastic tray that you nuke for 2 minutes for gastronomic delight? :getmecoat:

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Strangely the moning minies in the hotel were saying we were talking to loud nothing else and the guy from reception looked almost embassed at having to knock on the door . :gathering: it was alot of something over nothing but some folk do love to have a gumble I guess. :thumbdown:
