The group celebrates a splendid few days in Kent and Sussex

The group celebrates a splendid few days in Kent and Sussex
Posted on Sunday, 7th July 2019

Sunday was hardly a day of rest. After an interesting guided tour round the well-known 17th century ‘Pantiles’, we were off to 14th Century Penshurst Place, once home to Anne of Cleves, third wife of Henry VIII who managed to keep her head despite his calling her ‘The Flanders Mare’. We had a good lunch in the local 'Leicester Arms’ – a mere 16th century upstart! - and moved on to 14th century 'Ightham Mote’. Next day was our final castle, Hever, dating from 1270 and the home of Queen Anne Boleyn. With more visits to follow, the group (pictured left) felt we had been given a splendid tour of a beautiful area.

Liberal hospitality at the NLC

With its impressively grand interior the National Liberal Club has been used in films and TV series to portray the typical London gentlemen's club, but there is a relaxed atmosphere here, at its best on a summer evening, when members and guests can chat on the long terrace overlooking gardens and the river. Thus our dinner and social on June 28th was a popular occasion, with so many of our members wanting to dine beneath the statue of Mr. Gladstone, some had to be disappointed - but all of these gamely came along later for drinks on the terrace. The weather was beautiful and virtually everyone stayed until late.

The Sheraton Grand Hotel deserves its title, with several quality restaurants and a good traditional type bar. For our late May dinner and social, we dined in their Mercante Restaurant. The staff were very welcoming to our large party and the very good dinner was served so efficiently that we were able to join other colleagues in the bar soon after the appointed time. Places were reserved for our group in the bar, but there is a very relaxed atmosphere here, and we wandered freely. We will definitely be back to this excellent venue.

Dual delights in Euston

Our late April dinner and social were in adjacent parts of Euston, and for the meal we revisited the excellent Albertini restaurant, always busy and always welcoming. Their Friday fish soup is to die for! Our original plan to go en mass to the New Bloomsbury Set bar was frustrated by the discovery we would be competing with a drag act, so hastily switched to the bar of the Hilton Euston Hotel nearby (see picture) where we relaxed in comfortable surroundings in which we could hear ourselves speak!

Our member John in Los Angeles has told us of another suited event there for well-dressed men to connect discreetly, which he will be holding on Friday, May 17th in a nice hotel/ lounge bar in downtown LA from 7pm to 2am. This will be his 4th such event and they have proved very popular. For more details, John can be contacted at zuitzuit@hotmail.com for info, or you can join his Facebook group “Los Angeles Suit Men for Suited Men” and go to the “events tab”. This looks like being a regular fixture in this part of the world!
