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!

Location and Parking

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!

Come on England!

England's FIFA World Cup semi-final against Croatia is perfectly timed (7.00 pm BST on Wednesday 11th July)  to clash with our planned Curry Club meeting.  There's no doubt; most of us, even the most dedicated Rugby fans, will be somewhere near a television.  We'll all be hoping that England can repeat their performance against Sweden and win without needing penalties to decide the tie.

So no formal Curry Club meeting, but members are welcome to join me at the Fox and Pelican on Tuesday at 7.30 pm for a beer which we'll follow with a curry at one of Grayshott's restaurants.  If you plan to be there (or not), please let me know.  Please use the feedback page on the website or reply to the mail that is shortly to be sent to members so that I can make a booking.

Normal service to be reserved in August - I hope!

Bay Leaf in May!

The table is booked!  By popular request, we return to the Bay Leaf in Grayshott on Tuesday 8th May.  Aperitifs will be at the Fox and Pelican from about 19:30;  dinner is booked for 20:30.

This is always a popular venue, and Bishnu plans a 'surprise'!  His surprises have always been pleasant ones, so it's essential that we let him know how many to expect.  Please use the feedback page on the web site or reply a.s.a.p. to the e-mail that will be sent out today to members to let us know if you plan to be there.  It's a Bank Holiday on Monday so you may have less time than you thought, if you're planning to leave it to the last minute to decide.

Of course, the first weekend in May is also the date for the Petersfield Pub 7s.  I hope there's some decent weather and the Rugby Club's end-of-season party goes well.  But if not, Tuesday should be a great evening.  Hope to see you there.

Loads of parking in Grayshott - at the pub, a car park near the restaurant and the pub, and a car park on Crossways Road too.

Lavant Street Paradise! Wednesday 11th April

The table is booked!  We're doing something a little different in April, meeting on Wednesday evening, the 11th, and visiting the Charles Street Tap for our aperitifs before a short walk down Lavant Street to the Paradise Balti for dinner.  We heard that Big John is host there on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, so it seems a good idea to check the place out.  It's in the building on the corner of  Charles Street and Lavant Street, the building that used to be the auctioneer's.  As well as serving some insanely strong American IPAs, it apparently has real ale too.    Aperitifs from 19:30-ish as usual, dinner at 20:30.

Please let me know whether you expect to be there, using the feedback page on the website or, if you're one of the lucky 40-odd recipients, in response to the members' e-mail notice that will be sent out soon.  We had a great time last month, good beer, delicious food, but places were short.  We're a bit more flexible this time, but it's still good to let the restaurant know how many, so please reply as soon as possible and certainly by Monday night. 

Looking forward to a great and slightly different evening on Wednesday 11th!  See map below if you're confused about the location.

March meeting - places limited!

The table is booked!  Our meeting on Tuesday 13th March will be at Malabon, Dragon Street, Petersfield, at 20:30.  Aperitifs will be just up the road at the Red Lion from about 19:30.  But it's a case of first come, first served!

Malabon told us that they're very busy every night of the week now that 'Spice Lounge has closed'(!).  I don't spend much time in Petersfield in the evenings (except for Curry Club nights), so I didn't know.

We've booked for eight people and the first seven (after me) to reply are guaranteed a place at the table.  After that, we'll be negotiating with the restaurant and the later the reply, the more difficult it becomes.  There's a possibility that late replies or anyone turning up at the pub without replying will be on a separate table; not what anyone really wants.  Members are asked please let us know a.s.a.p. An e-mail notice will be sent shortly, or you can use the feedback form on our web site, but please let us know. 

Looking forward to some good and spicy food to warm us up after the recent cold spell - hope to see as many as can make it on the 13th!

Tuesday 13th February - Madhuban

The table is booked!  After taking a month off in January, we're back in February with a trip to Madhuban in Liss.  Aperitifs will be at the Spread Eagle from about 19:30 and then dinner is at 20:30.

Yes, it's half term week, and Valentine's night on the 14th, but we love the cooking and the welcome at Madhuban, and this is one not to be missed.  Please let me know either by using the feedback page on our web site or by responding to the members' e-mail, whether you expect to make it or not.

Hope to see many of our members there for a great evening!
