West Country Lunch

Hi gang, with Ian having another Nosh and Natter and it being March I am happy to organise another West Country Cell lunch. I'm thinking now of either Wed 25th march or early April. maybe the Wednesday after Easter (8th April) and wonder if you would like Diggers Rest or the one near Taunton again (New Mill) or if there are any other ideas. Let me know and any other preferred dates and I will see what I can arrange.

  • Hi Bob we are in Portugal at the moment, but we would be back for a date in April

  • Good idea Bob. March or April suits me. Found a nice pub just by Junction 25 M5 . Will let you know its name later. MaryC

  • Thanks Bob. I am free on both dates and Taunton would suit me best.


  • Wednesday's aren't ideal for us but Ann & I could make either date at the moment. We'd prefer Taunton but would be happy to go to Exeter


  • We can't make Wednesdays now, Bob, really sorry to say. Nor Fridays, and can only do the other days which actually fall in the school hols. Maybe in the summer we'll be able to come. I keep hoping!


  • Hi Bob,

    Either of the dates would be fine for me as things stand at present. Taunton is nearer but I don't have a preference.


  • O K then how about the Tuesday then after Easter Monday (7th April) and the schools will still be out? Does that help anybody? Mary says she has found another pub near J25 Taunton and will let me know asap details so I think we go with Taunton area.

  • The Tuesday isn't good for me as I help my mother in law that day.

  • 7th April is fine with me.


  • I would really like to come Taunton would be better for me as I have to come by train from Newton Abbot. Would prefer Wednesday but could possible come other days as long as don't clash with hospital appointments. As soon as you decide where and when as long as its convenient with a train station I will come.

    Sorry to ramble
