I would disagree.
The vast majority of attendees last year very much enjoyed The Crown. The hospitality was superb, with the landlord going to the extra effort of putting up all the Alfa decor.
The food was good - we were asked beforehand if we wanted him to supply us with a 'proper' christmas lunch and there was ample parking.
OK, so it's not in the centre of our region - we all have cars - hence the forum, and going for a drive is half the point of a meet!
Personally, I thought it was ideal, and I don't think I'm alone in that.
