City Diners – Small but perfectly formed!

There were just the eight of us that gathered at George Inn on Friday 16th September for our luncheon with invited guests. There would have been two more, but they arrived 24 hours early and could not be bothered to wait! (They could have joined the queue to see Her Majesty and then come back to the George!) After the Old Askean Grace we stood for a minutes silence in memory of our fallen sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II.

The food, as always at the George was good, wholesome and very tasty. Beer battered fish Goujons (almost a main course in itself) were followed by British Steak & Ale Pie with seasoned greens and Triple Cooked Chips. Only one of the party could manage the desert of afternoon cheese cake with Clotted cream cheesecake, strawberry jam, scone pieces, strawberries. As per tradition the food was accompanied by lashings of wine and beer.

An excellent repast and a chance to renew the acquaintances of our youth. Many thanks to Mr Homewood for organising. I for one will be the there, God willing, for the next meeting of this august group.
