We have a two centered seaside trip this year and it will include a Blue Badge Guide which will make it more interesting for us.

The Romney Marsh is a mysterious region of Kent, rich in History and Legends. It’s undemanding on your feet but satisfying on the senses I am told! The day includes a Fish and Chip lunch with hot drink at the famous Pilot Inn at Dungeness. By opting to drive along the coast through St Mary’s Bay and Dr. Syn’s Dymchurch we reach historic Hythe. In the afternoon you can visit the interesting little craft and fashion shops in Hythe at your leisure.

Autumn Lunch


The Cranleigh-  Hornchurch                                                                                                             Date Friday 27th September

                                                                                                                                                                          Closing date 27 August


This will be our last meal at the Cranleigh as it is due to close after December for redevelopment.

Parking is limited here so come early as the ambience is more than worth the visit. There is local street parking. The nearest tube station is Hornchurch. It is on the District Line and the venue is only one Bus stop away (a 5-minute walk for some) This is highly recommended.

We will be holding a Raffle for the First Steps Charity for which I hope you will be generous.

The service here is Silver Service and we hope to eat at 12.30 so please arrive by 12 midday in plenty of time to get your drinks at the bar and to be sitting next to the friends of your choice.

You will also need to collect from me, or Carol, a voucher to display your food choices.
