A great central meeting place for Alfa chat over lunch. :)

Please post interest and any date you know you can or cant make in October. I've put the 26th for now as its the furthest away. :confused:

Copied for those who havent read the other thread -

Ok people, I have an idea for possibly October since we have a meet and a run happening this month.

A friend of mines family own and run the Balbirnie House Hotel in Fife, this is a stunning hotel and one of Fifes top bistros and wedding venues.
Set in a parkland estate and surrounded by woods and a golf course, They have large parking areas, and some good spots for pics i'm sure.

What I'm proposing would be a meet there and lunch in the hotel, they could keep an area for us and do coffees, soup and rolls etc at a good rate for us. (i'm not on a percentage honestly, )

I've had a chat with them about this, and they would be happy to have us. My friends brother in law the manager also has a Maser 4200 Spyder that could join us for pics too I'd imagine.

Let me know what you think folks and we can possibly get a date for this arranged before winter, if we can get a good number of members interested.

Cheers
Philip

Re: Fife meeting and lunch.

gosh philip ,mrs p would even suffer a drive in either pomeo or lacey to luncheon at that stupendous hotel......I,being from Motherwell, would have to pretend to be dumb and let her speak for me at a place such as that.Me thinks ...(She does that for me anyway)

ps the linky for the menu took me back to the start.
can you give us a clue as to the menu before tam cowan gets there....hes from Motherwell too but a lot younger than me.

Pomeo

wishing he went to this hotel instead of blackpool.

Re: Fife meeting and lunch.

Pomeo, bring the family it'll be a good day. :D

When I get numbers I was just going to arrange the food etc......instead of just picking off the menu as we'll get a better deal.
If we say there will be 10 to 20 of us for soup and rolls, then confirm numbers asap before getting there.
What do folk think...... should I just ask for a group discount off the menu, when we find it, lol. :)

Menu link above folks, they have the bistro or the orangery with different food though or like I said we can just have a fixed price soup an sandwiches etc in the bar area.

I was hoping to get an idea of numbers then organising the food.
But I would suggest the bar or bistro and we just pick what we want off the menu, and I'll get a big table booked well in advance!
(both with reasonable prices, I was in the bistro with my family a wee while ago and I'd say about £20 per person would cover a 3 course meal and drinks, they also do a £12 fixed menu 3 course)
Could arrange a discount i'm sure anyway! :)
The orangery is the award winning restaurant.....which is slightly dearer, menus for that on thet site too.
