Every year we ‘team 12foot6’ take the big guns Dave & Tom out for a Christmas lunch. This year we decided to go a little left field and opted for the Elk In The Woods in Angel. As snug as we were, amongst antlers, meat & wood we did have a rather good time. The venison platter, the pork selection and other culinary delights were pretty darn nice. Teamed with some great good service we ate until our bellies burst! Tom and Dave need to match this by taking us out next week. Do we think they can do it? Yes we can!
This weekend wraps up the brilliant Shuffle Festival curated by Danny Boyle. Our well judo Dog Judo will be supporting Friday night’s screening of Gremlins and we cannot wait! Come on down to the Winter Shuffle, watch some films, have a drink and see if you can spot the writer (Andrew) just handing out.
