We Free Things of The Bear We Are...
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
December 2nd.... Its now 2 days into the festive month... and by now you have probably heard too many Christmas songs already... so are you ready for some more conversation by candlelight...???
Lets eat, drink and be merry by candle-light at The Bear, 6-10 Wellsway, Bath BA2 3AQ... and experience three free things.
On arrival, you will receive a complimentary glass of bubbles, (I guess this will be Prosseco, but I'm going to push the management for the proper stuff) followed by free wine at the dinner table, one bottle of red or white or rose per three people - and maybe one or two or three extra ones ;-) ;-) and then followed by free-flowing conversations while we tuck-in to a three-course festive feast, which if you want to... you can carve your own roast of your choice.
The cost... including the service charge will be £32.00. Please note, there is no cost reduction should you wish to have only two courses, so if you don't want a starter or sweet course, share it with others.... :-)
For those of you who are interested in attending this great event, I'm planning to get the full amount of £32.00 from you by the 25th November so that, on the evening you need only to buy what drinks you may wish to purchase directly from the Bar. Anyone not paid by the 25th will be removed from the list to allow anyone on the waitlist to join us.
I will also need you to pre-order your food choices, as there will be no option on the night to change your mind and.... no option for anyone to turn-up on the night unexpected and ask to see if I can get the Chef to squeeze another one in... Sorry, he is bigger than me....! Lol!!. So when you RSVP, please message me with your food choices by referring to the menu below and tell me which course you would like, eg. Starter S2, Main M1 & Sweet S3.
I should also point out, that once you have paid and you have to back-out for whatever reason, it will be your responsibility to try and find a replacement to take your place, but as this event is limited to 28 dinners, there maybe a few people available on the waitlist to approach if this were to happen. If you are unable to find a replacement, then I will do my best to get you a refund, but I offer no guarantees that this will happen.
So in summary.... £32.00 for a 3-course dinner including bubbles, wine and great conversation and laughter... what's not to like...???? Get RSVP'ing ASAP to get your name on the guest-list... oh... and get you Christmas glitsy dresses on... Gentleman, its a trouser and casual shirt night... no chino's or jeans or t-shirts please, but if you want to wear a dress, that's up to you... Ha! Ha! Ha!
Dinner will be served at 8.00pm sharp. So don't be late.
If your driving, there is limited parking to the rear of The Bear, but parking can be found in the adjacent Bloomfield Avenue.... If your coming in from afar, via public transport, you can get the number 3 or 4 bus from the bus station and both stop right outside The Bear, or there are taxis....!!!
See you on the 2nd...... :-)
