Spice Lounge in November!


Restaurant picture
We visited in January - not bad - but we hear it's improved since.  Early last year, the menu changed direction to something that looked expensive and very short of interesting dishes.  Now it's offering a full menu including some really hot dishes (phall, naga) as well as more sensible favourites.

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.  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.

Let's look forward to a great evening on Tuesday 12th November!

October meeting - Chill Nights - Tuesday 8th

It's October (well it will be tomorrow) and it's time to visit Chilli Nights, Wey Hill, Haslemere.  The table is booked for our October meeting which will take place on Tuesday 8th.  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 (7th) 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 and a few of us went to Gurkha Durbar instead.  Coincidentally something similar happened last year.  Let's hope we can do better this time and have a great evening on 8th October - hope to see you there!

 malabon.co.uk

The table is booked!  Our next meeting will be at Malabon in Petersfield, on Wednesday 14th August.  Aperitifs will be at the Red Lion from about 7.30, and then dinner is at 8.30.

Ouch - we're well into the summer holidays and the Christmas chocolate is already on sale in the shops! The year seems to be running away, but we can cheer ourselves up with a beer and a curry, and maybe there'll even be a chance to congratulate the newly weds, if they're not celebrating in some exotic place.

The restaurant have a busy Wednesday night and space is limited - it may be difficult or impossible to accommodate extra people at the last moment.  We need to let them know numbers on Monday evening so please let me know through the feedback page on the web site or in response to the e-mail to members whether you expect to make it or not.

The cooking's always good there, so let's hope we have a great turnout!

Petersfield meeting cancelled 😧

The only participants for tonight's meeting are Grayshott-based and so we've decided that it's not worth a trip to Petersfield, particulary given the revolting driving conditions.  It's a shame, we'll have to wait for another chance to enjoy the cooking at Malabon. 

In its place, we're fixing up a Grayshott get-together this evening via WhatsApp.  We'll make a decision about April then.

Bay Leaf, Tue 12th Feb

The table is booked!  We're looking forward to a visit to the Bay Leaf in Grayshott on Tuesday 12th February.  Aperitifs will be at the Fox and Pelican (front bar) from about 7:30 and then dinner is at 8:30.

We always enjoy ourselves at the Bay Leaf - for many members, it's their favourite venue.  Hard luck to those who are away in the Caribbean next week, but I expect that the sunshine, rum and some goat curry will help to make up for what you're missing.

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.
