Spice Lounge on 15th Jan!

We haven't been to the Spice Lounge since December 2017.  Early last year, the menu changed direction to something that looked expensive and very short of interesting dishes.  Fortunately it's back as an Indian restaurant and we're booked to go there on Tuesday 15th.  That's a week later than the usual schedule, but we felt at the last meeting that the 8th was just too close to New Year.


I haven't ordered the kulchi lamb yet, but if at least eight people ask for it by 6 pm Saturday, I'll make a call and see what they can do - if it's on the new menu.  The spiced up version was really quite good.

Aperitifs will be at the Old Drum from about 7.30 pm and then dinner will be at 8.30.  Please let me know either by e-mail in response to the members' meeting notice or using the feedback page on our web site whether you expect to make it.

As evidence that the restaurant has changed direction, there's a new web site including new menu and a promotions/offers page.  That looks enterprising, they've obviously got ideas, so let's look forward to a great evening on Tuesday 15th of January.

December meeting - Wed 12th - details confirmed

The table is booked for our December meeting!  We'll go to Paradise Balti on Wednesday 12th for our last get-together of 2018.  We chose a Wednesday night instead of Tuesday, just to make it a little more possible for Petersfield regulars to attend.

All the feedback from the November e-mail said that we should go to the Charles Street Tap for aperitifs.  So that's the decision. It can be found on the corner of Lavant Street and Charles Street; there's a Google map below.  We'll aim to be there from 7:30pm and then dinner is at 8:30pm.

We already have a total of nine takers for the 12 places that we booked, even before the e-mail notice is sent out, as well as from three who can't make it this time.  So I need hear urgently from everyone else who'd like a place so that we can increase the booking if necessary (and if possible). 

Please let me know either by e-mail in response to this members' meeting notice or using the feedback page on our web site, whether you expect to make it .  

By the way, the web site also has a link to our Amazon affiliate shop where a little commission on your Christmas purchases can contribute to the beer kitty.

Best wishes for Christmas to all of our members and visitors to this blog site!

December at Paradise Balti!

The table is booked for our December meeting!  We'll go to Paradise Balti for our last get-together of 2018.  Just to make it a little more possible for Petersfield regulars to attend, we're going for a Wednesday night instead of Tuesday, so please save the 12th in your diary.

We have plenty of time to decide where to go for aperitifs, so I'm happy take suggestions - we could go to the Old Drum, to the Charles Street Tap, or to the Square Brewery - though the latter often has music on a Wednesday night.  Please let me know either by e-mail in response to the members' meeting notice or using the feedback page on our web site whether you expect to make it and what is your choice of pub.    

By the way, the web site also has a link to our Amazon affiliate shop where your Christmas purchases can contribute to the beer kitty.

Apologies for the lack of a meeting in November.  I had just too many things to do and as a result discovered too late that I'd double booked.  Hope to see you for the pre-Christmas meeting.

October - Chilli Night(s)


The table is booked for our October meeting which will take place at Chilli Nights, Wey Hill, Haslemere on Tuesday 9th.  As usual when we're in this neck of the woods, we'll meet for aperitifs at the restaurant from 19:30-ish.  Dinner is booked for 20:30.

Please let me know either using the feedback form on the web site or in response to the e-mail notice to members whether or not you expect to be there.  I'd like to know as soon as possible but definitely by Monday morning (8th) please, so that we can adjust the booking if necessary.

Chilli Nights always looks after us well, but we couldn't assemble enough members to meet there as planned in June.  Let's hope we can do better this time and have a great evening on 9th October - hope to see you there!

Table booked for September 11th


The table is booked, but it’s not a very big one! Malabon now want a deposit for bookings of more than 6 covers.  I don’t give credit card numbers over the phone, so we have a little bit of an impasse.  I need to know if we’re going to be more than 6 on Tuesday 11th so that I can ask for more...

The details: aperitifs at the Red Lion from about 19:30, then dinner at Malabon at 20:30. Please let me know through the feedback page of the web site or in reply to the members’ email notice whether you expect to make be there.  Soon please!

Hope to see as many as possible on Tuesday.  The cooking is always good there!
