5th Legendary Thames Valley Christmas Party

13 posts in this topic

Here are the details of this year's Legendary Christmas Party! I’ve selected a date that’s nice and early, so that it hopefully shouldn’t interfere with any other parties that you’ve got planned...

 

Thursday 06th December, 7:30 PM

 

The Three Horseshoes

Wycombe Road

Marlow

Bucks

SL7 3RA

 

This is a lovely pub just ½ mile from J4 on the M40, so very easy to get to. Marlow is right in the corner where Bucks, Berks and Oxon meet, so everyone is welcome. If you’ve never been to a meet before, this is your chance to meet some new friends. We promise not to talk about cars all night! friends.gif

 

The food is delicious, the portions are large, and the beer is brewed ½ mile down the road.

 

The Christmas menu is £26.95 per person for a three course dinner (you might need to fast for a couple of days to eat it all!) with after dinner coffee and mince pies.

 

I need to know your menu choices by 25th November as this is when I have to confirm the table numbers, which will be strictly limited to 20.

 

I’m not collecting deposits this year, but if any booking is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, a cancellation charge of £10 per person will apply.
