I think that was the quickest I ever got to or got home from any of the meets I've been to over the years. ;) :lol:

Pleasant evening in good company - its been a long time since we last all met. Hopefully we'll get a few more come next time we do this (probably in August).

I'm up for the 17th. Although, can I recommend trying The Pied Bull instead? It's a very short walk up the road. It has a small car park so disabled members can park right outside. Although I'd probably continue to park where I have for The Lion. The food is better than The Lion, the staff are very friendly and they'd happily take our booking (I went there last night and asked).

I don't know how to embed the Google Map of it. But here is the link:

https://goo.gl/maps/iTZmFyEhNAYTR6gC6

Nigel knows that I've be complaining about The Lion for a couple of years now and last night was the last straw. I arrived with a friend shortly before 8pm and we were told that they weren't accepting any more food orders. Because they had "a 90 minute backlog in the kitchen" and they would have shut the kitchen before they would have gotten around to cooking our order.

Only a few tables were occupied so I've no idea how it was going to take them 90 mins to cook for so few people, especially with the very limited menu they run these days. It's such a poorly run pub. Anyway, they only told us that that the kitchen was closed to more orders after we'd paid for drinks.

So we called the The Pied Bull and they were very inviting and weren't closing the kitchen until 9pm. It was a lovely short stroll there and the staff were lovely... and my mild flirting was embraced in good humour. The clientele at the Bull were a nice bunch and there were some very cool Nortons and other bikes outside that we got to listen to and watch at the end of the night. Oh, and The Pied Bull staff didn't close up early and hound us out the door like they always seem to do at The Lion.

Anyway. The other pub was so much better that I've vowed never to go back to The Lion. It takes me over an hour to get there and they always make me feel so unwelcome.

I made the same vow about never going back to Birmingham and was forced to suffer Brum again... but I'll aim to hold true to this one :lol:

The first post has now been updated with a new location along with times at The Pied Bull =D> =D> =D> =D>

There is a small car park at the pub, plus looking at the aerial photo, there is also parking avalable on the road aswell =D>

So at the moment there are three of us going, so who else would like to join us at the pub, as a table will need to be booked in advance :thumleft:
