Menu and more details
Warfare Dinner – 2018
Dinner at Sindlesham Court (just across the road from the clubhouse) on 27 October 2018 – 7:00 pm for 7:30 start.
Dear all, as it is our 40th Anniversary this year, we chose local! However, it is a set sliver service single menu at Sindlesham Court.
The Dinner is for you and one guest/partner and is free. Some drinks at your own expense as you choose. Great fun, some puzzles to work out, a quiz and a raffle will also be run.
However, this year it means only one choice of Starter, Main Course and Dessert for all. We have to choose one, so you get to vote for it, if you wish to come that is. There is a limited exception only for special dietary needs and vegetarians. We have limited the vast range to some easier choices: We will go for the highest count as to what we will all eat!
