As long as people turn up we will keep having the meet every month (we will only give up if it becomes the same two or three of us every month and nobody else bothers). It will be good to see you there. :thumleft:

Is anybody else coming to this meet this month - it is Tuesday this week? We know Nigel won't be there ... I'll post again later today or tomorrow and see how it is looking for anybody else turning up.

Haydn,

Saw a great hotel band called the Poo Shifters at The Terrazza but we were drunk at the time so my appreciation may have been a bit skewed :beers:

Ranjan.

Brian, if it's only going to be myself and you tomorrow, let's give it a miss as although the food and company is good, its not worth the travelling for a short meet

Marc - That was why I posted up ... if someone else confirms they'll be coming I'll make the effort, but if we get nobody else saying they'll be there before tomorrow morning I agree.

I won't be at the September meet - I'll be taking a leaf out of Haydn's book and living it up on the west coast of the US - I just won't be working as hard as he obviously is. ;)

OK as nobody has confirmed they'll be coming and the chances are just Marc and I would have ended up having a nice romantic meal together, so we'll cancel the meet for this month. Next one will be September 17th.

Apologies if you were going to come, hopefully there will be more takers for September (I'll be away unfortunately, I'll be there for the October meet barring the same thing happening again).

Thought I'd submit a proposal for a new venue to try at some point. This is The Lion in Farningham. I went there on Wednesday because my friends and I couldn't really stand the menu and stale atmosphere at The Wharf any more.

It's a Vintage Inns pub, only a couple of minutes further south along the M25. It's lovely inside with a mix of open areas and smaller more private spaces. The garden is huge and stretches out to a very pretty river. The menu is great and comparable in price to The Wharf while the food quality is much better. In addition to the regular pub grub they also do hand-stretched pizzas which are excellent. The dessert menu is more varied as well. There's loads of parking, either in the pub car park or over the road. My mates and I are making it our regular from now on.

Pub website (with menu and visual walkthrough):

Address:
THE LION
High Street, Farningham, Kent, DA4 0DP

'For your consideration' ;)

Thanks for the suggestion. =D> I think I've been in there - is this where you basically get off the M25 and head for Brands Hatch but turn right at the roundabout by the petrol station, the car park is down there on the left but if you miss it just turn left at the end of the road and park on the other side of a bridge and walk back to the pub?
I'd be up to try this out (Marc, they do gammon, egg and chips so it's nearly ham, egg & chips, just a bit better), what does anybody else who might come think?

We stopped-off at The Lion a few times, the last being about 6 years ago, when it was friendly but a bit run down.

Looking at the website, someone has put some money into the place and it's now part of the Vintage Inns group - hopefully that's "a good thing".

At the moment it looks as though I can make the next meet :D

I'd be up for trying the different venue :thumleft:

That's the one ;)

As Dave said it's had a lot of money spent on doing it up. It's a chain pub, but I think a nice one. And you can book tables online if desired. It'll be a really good spot when the summer weather is back.

I'm gonna stop plugging it now in case you guys hate it :lol:

Re: Dartford Meet: VENUE CHANGE for Tuesday 15/10/19 - **7pm**

Thanks for the suggestion. Nigel and I discussed this today and we have decided to give The Lion a try for this month at least. Attendances at The Wharf have been falling off in recent months and perhaps a change of location might get a few more people interested ... and it looks like a nice pub with a good menu, so it seems worth a try at the very least.

So anybody considering attending the meet this month please note:
WE HAVE A CHANGE OF LOCATION FOR THE MEET ON OCTOBER 15TH WHICH WILL NOW BE HELD AT THE LION IN FARNINGHAM
APPROPRIATE LINKS, THE PUB'S ADDRESS ETC CAN BE FOUND IN THE FIRST POST ON PAGE 1

Thanks Brian for updating the first post and will update the Calendar shortly :thumleft:

If there is enough interest in the October Meet then will book a table for 6 to 8 people or more of course :thumleft:

Hope it's not too far for those Members who come from the other side of the Dartford Tunnel/Bridge though :?: :!:
