This place looks like it may be good for dinner after the buses. Not been there personally though, just based on a google of nearby pubs.

 

Went to the C**t and Trumpet a few times many years ago, good pub, will need to check when they serve on Sunday evenings as some places are 12 to 3, and 7 to 9 only

It's strange how the local nickname sticks in my memory.

I used to attend a monthly 2CV meet at the Coach and Horses. Seemed ok then, but this was about 15 years ago...

 

I like the sound of this plan very much, so I hope to be there.

Just phoned them and they stop taking food orders at 16:15 on a Sunday so Sloth's suggestion is probably better.

 

First time I ever quoted myself I think.

Last went there in the early 90's. Ended up with a cracked tooth and eventually a gap.

I suggested at a Glossop meet if anyone's coming from the north west, a few of us might like to go in the Volvo?

If beer's on offer I feel like that could be even more handy.

I fancy this for a day out - might even investigate a hotel for the Sunday night to allow beer. Anyone need a lift from Congleton (or anywhere en route) and back on the Monday morning?

Bear in mind there's no breakfast meet up so you may have to action your own.

For anybody who really can't wait there is another railway museum closing.  The Bishops Castle Railway Museum is open this weekend for the last time and despite living locally I've never been.  I did join the society recently though so am likely to be stewarding there on Saturday morning and operating the model railway.

Just a little bump to this one.

 

Seeing as we're a fortnight away, perhaps it would be good to get a list of folk known to be going mainly so we can book for dinner after the trains and buses. Looking like it'll be The Red Lion in Alvechurch so I'll edit the main post with the action plan.

 

I'll get the ball rolling (delete / add as appropriate)

2. Dave's mate Brian from Telford (Buses and maybe dinner)

3. Sloth_in_a_bowl (Trains, buses and dinner)
