    Christmas Meal 2017

    Post  anti-climb max on Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:02 pm

    Yep, it's that time of year again (August)

    Phil has kindly started his Saturday night bender at Bistro Pierre, booking a table or three for this year's Christmas meal.

    Cost is £18.50 and each booking requires a £5 non returnable deposit. Deposits to Phil who promises not to drink them.

    Date is 16th December at 1:15, we'll do the usual pier ride to Burnham before.

    Please book early to avoid disappointment/nagging.

    Menu choices will be taken in November, menu will be online, some smarty pants might want to post a link.

    Thanks Martin

    It is the Lunch Menu we need to order from

    The Pre Theatre menu is for anyone eating early evening (before they go to the theatre, which is obviously a more popular pass time in Weston than i realised)

    Bernie came in with a request for 2 people at the last minute so the final number now confirmed with Bistrot Pierre and deposit paid is 27.

    I will post a spreadsheet for your menu choices in due course, no rush at this stage.
