Bloomin' June

The June munch was very agreeable with a nice mix of first-timers and old-timers (age references not intended!). The pub was much quieter than usual, especially for a Friday night - must have been something to do with the lovely sunny evening and/or that folk had over-indulged at the previous night's England match.

As the next munch falls on a Sunday the venue will be changed as the pub is not open. Some of you may remember the last time this happened - unexpectedly!

So please keep an eye on this site - the new venue will be posted as soon as it is confirmed. Please note though, this will be an afternoon munch from 2pm to 5pm rather than the usual evening get together. If you've not already done so, please drop us an email (see our new anti-spam Contact Us posting) so we can add you to the mailing list and keep you informed as to the location.

The munch is alive and well

Good to see some old and some new faces at the May munch. We occupied our usual corner just inside the main door of the pub. As both Mel and I were there, the mascot cats (Bagpuss & Scorchy) were in attendance. Though you wouldn't guess from the pictures here on the site, Bagpuss is tiny so keep your eyes peeled if looking for him at a future get together. We did have one enquiry from a couple of inquisitive girls as to the reason for the cat and they didn't seem entirely satisfied by the "it's our mascot" answer so if anyone can come up with some good "vanilla" excuses please post your comments here.

The next munch will revert to its usual 16th of the month slot for June which is a Friday this time (good for some, not for others - but that's the idea). I checked and England are not playing that night so there's no excuses there...

If any newcomers would like a "meet and greet" then please send an email to us at the above address in advance and we will look out for you.

See you soon,
Mel & Rob
