There is still no reason why the Monthly Meet can't go ahead with just 3 or 4 people turning up :thumleft:

There were only 2 people at the Dartford Meet this Month, but still went ahead :!:

Well me, Jack and Millie are going. I'm trying to convince Adam to come along with his friend too.

It's a shame you and Malcolm won't be there, Nigel :(

Don't think I'll be around for this one, Adam has stolen me as it's his birthday that day.

I'm just wondering if we are going to change the venue at all? The car park and staff are amazing at Six Bells but their food is really dry. (Adam and Haydn are bored of hearing that I'm sure!) I don't mind doing the research into other places around the Chelmsford area :)

I'm planning to make the next one. Happy with the Six Bells, but also happy to consider alternatives, if only for variety :)

I think we stick with the Bells for this one, we've tried a few others around Chelmsford in the past, but a lot of pubs are either reluctant to accommodate car clubs, or don't have the parking.

One's we have done before:-
The Grange - Food OK, but the service was a bit lacking
The Duke of Wellington - Food Variable, service Variable
The Running Mare - Good Food, Good Service, but a bit pricy

We also had a couple of meets at the Bungalow Diner in Marks Tey.
Food, service and Value for money were good, however it was agreed it was a bit too far for some of the regulars who come from the London side of Essex.
Maybe we alternate between the Bungalow and another Chelmsfordy pub
