Tue 11th July - Fewa Inn, Whitehill

The table is booked! We had a great time at the Bay Leaf in June, and we're looking forward to the opening of Dili in Haslemere in the near future.  We decided at June's meeting that we'll go somewhere else that's new in July, the Fewa Inn in Whitehill. This is a Gurkha restaurant in what used to be a pub under various names - it's been The Roadmaker, The Outback, and the Prince of Wales at various points in its history. 

 I went there last night for a recce and the waiter recognised me as he'd worked at the Gurkha Durbar at some point. The menu isn't as extensive as the Gurkha Durbar but I enjoyed my food and can report that non-alcoholic beer (Bavaria 0.0) was available. It's a large comfortable room with Nepali decorations and it has plenty of room for us. There's a decent sized car park at the back and plenty of on-street parking if that's full. 

Whitehill and the surrounding area are a little bit of a desert for pubs - although its population is bigger than both Alton and Petersfield, there's only one pub in town. So aperitifs will be at the Woodlark from about 7 pm and then we drive the short distance (0.3 miles or 2 minutes away) to the Fewa Inn for dinner at 8. 

Please let me know as soon as possible whether you expect to be there, either using the feedback page of the web site or in answer to the meeting notice e-mail sent to all members. To make sure we book enough places, please respond as early as possible, ideally by 8 p.m. on Sunday 9th. Looking forward to a great evening!
