GAH

So

Apazz too booked up for a gaggle of 11 people and wouldn't be able to guarantee separate tables, even later on.

Sooooo. Ideas?


ALTERNATIVE A)

This place you can book tables online. 10 people seems to be fine for 14:00, but 11 people? "No me gusta"
Could probably split two tables of 6 people for 14:00, or very slightly staggered times.
Or just go ahead with the 10x person booking since at least one will drop out last minute, maybe a couple more due to the venue change?

The Stanhope Arms

Directions:
The Stanhope Arms (Table Table chain)
Ashby Rd E
Burton-on-Trent
DE15 0PU


MENU
http://www.tabletable.co.uk/pub-restaur ... Trent.html




ALTERNATIVE B)

Tenpin where PaulAV works

https://m.tenpin.co.uk/centres/coventry/

Crosspoint Business Park
Olivier Way
Coventry
CV2 2SH

(potential issue being booking the correct amount - dropping >£100 on a booking with no-shows who won't end up paying. Also complicates things either food/no food)

That's a pain, any one fancy bowling? Work at a bowling Ally, wouldn't recommend the food as such but there is a frank and benny, a nandos and a brewers fair.

I'm fine going with the flow too. My bowl is just off the m6 coventry. I was typing as you posted Nick, so was just throwing an option out there.

Alrighty, so sorting something (successful) out this late was always going to be less than satisfactory, sorry about the balls up chaps... so those who decide to not turn up for any reason, show up to Appleby without realising the plans had changed, any food poisoning (it has a 5/5 Food Hygiene rating mind) that occurs, any increased fuel expense or any other dissatisfaction that may occur - feel free to hurl it my way. :thumright:

That said, could be a nice change of venue on this occasion, and thank you to any attendees for being flexible.


With that out of the way, it's not the first time that Appleby has been difficult to book for a large group at Sunday lunchtime, so given the almost inherent uncertainty with numbers that comes with these events in the past, I has an idea for the next one that I'll propose later on.

Updated details that I'll throw into the OP:

Might have to start organising a [Knees] up in a brewery in between meets to hopefully get some much needed practice at this :lol:
