I also have to be in London on the 7th thus it would be pleasure to share some Port. Thank you.

First post updated with arrangements, as they are, and will continue to be updated.

If anyone would like to order food other than their standard food order, please let me know as soon as possible. If I want my special order steak, I'll have to get the food order in tomorrow. George - I'll need to know your guest's food order if we are to pre-order for them.

Current menu can be found here but I think there is also a grouse special at the moment.

My guest's initials are OJW. She would like burrata on toast; and a medium rare sirloin with salad.

Yes please. No starter for me.

What’s Port theme? Bring a bottle? Sighted or blind?

I will bring a pair of bottles, related but not identical, and not Vintage.

We certainly have space for one more. If both of you can make it then I am sure we can find a larger space on a Monday night.

But I have a confession to make - I have been so busy at work that I have neither pre-ordered food nor printed placemats. Please be prepared to cope!

Today I learnt that not only can I not come, this isn’t even new — I never could. Sorry.
