PPS New Year Dinner: Cherry House Werrington Thurs. 15 Feb. 2018

Further to PPS 7 Nov. meeting announcement, Peterborough Photographic Society's 'New Year Dinner' is provisionally arranged for Thursday 15 February 2018 at The Cherry House, 125 Church St., Werrington Village, Peterborough PE4 6QF  Tel 01733 571721 ... same venue as last year with an excellent Table d'hote menu.

Commencing PPS meeting Tuesday 14 November there will be a PPS NEW YEAR DINNER BOOKING FORM available for members to sign and indicate numbers of guests ... the more the merrier. 

Actual menu will not be available until early February but will be similar to current offerings which include meat, fish and vegetarian dishes as per their website:  http://cherryhouserestaurant.co.uk/menu/   ... all under supervision of Chef/Patron Andrew Corrick - former Head Chef at The Park Lane Hotel, Mayfair.

Cost for a 3 course Table d'hote meal is £27.95 per person including coffee; any special dietary / allergy needs e.g. gluten free can be catered for by prior arrangement.   

Drinks not included but you're welcome to order your own; last February several members shared a bottle(s) of wine which they paid for separately. 

All bookings must be prepaid; I'll start collecting the ££ and issuing receipts in December. 

Looking forward to another superlative cullinary event; we'll meet in the bar for pre-meal drinks at 7pm with big eats commencing 7.45pm ish. 

Regards

Cherry House meal

We went to this restaurant last year and it was a great success. The venue is really nice and the food excellent. Everybody I spoke to afterwards rated it!   Highly recommended!!

Thanks to Duncan for organising it again.

Cherry House Dinner

A big 'Thank you' to Duncan for organising this New Year Dinner for the club. 

The Cherry House is a super venue and the food was great.

People do not always realise the amount of time and effort that goes into the organising of an  evening such as this. 

As for the 'after dinner' anecdotes........ Don't worry, Dunc, they are safe with us! Was it Southey woods??? LOL!

Once again, thanks Dunc. Much appreciated!

Geoff
