Something in the City

Something in the City

It is pleasant to record that the August dinner and social at the Grange City Hotel was very successful in all respects. Attendance sometimes dips at a bank holiday weekend - members apparently rushing away to their country estates - but not this time! We liked the spacious and comfortable feel of this venue, a stone's throw from the Tower of London. The meal was served efficiently in their vast restaurant, and a large group of us stayed late in the bar, enjoying a very convivial atmosphere. A very nice place!

We had high hopes for our dinner on August 16th at 'Margot' a fairly new Italian restaurant in Covent Garden - it had after all been recommended by two well-known food critics. To some extent, the praise was justified. It is a smart and efficient place, and having the youngish male waiters wear DJs is not a bad idea. The food was reasonably good but not outstanding. However the select group of us who graced the establishment had a good time, as the picture (left) may suggest!

Great evening at the Bedford!

Our dinner and social at the end of July certainly went with a swing, and the newly refurbished Bedford Hotel in Southampton Row proved an inspired choice. Restaurant and bar share a large handsome room, with a patio alongside (sadly of limited use on this rainy evening). One of many approving comments afterwards perhaps summed it up: "The staff were efficient, the food very good, and the cost very reasonable indeed!". The turnout for both dinner and drinks later was excellent and most of us stayed late - we will undoubtedly return to the Bedford next year.

Special dispensation is surely justified for the relaxed attire of two of our members, David and Peter, pictured here in their Alpine rose garden. Having met through SATS, they had been happily together for several years in the UK, attending many of our events, but they have now taken the courageous step of moving to the French Alps (near Annecy) to run a holiday home business there together, which has been going very well.

David and Peter say they are already well-settled in this beautiful part of the world - and that they are fully booked for the next month or so! It must be said that looking at the spectacular view from their large chalet, one half-expects Julie Andrews to appear, singing “The hills are alive....”!(see left). We wish this popular couple well in their new enterprise, and if you can find seven others to go with you, why not have a look at their site:- https://www.les-roses-des-alpes.com/en/chalet-les-roses-des-alpes.?
