If I thought that sticking a sausage on a stick in front of the engine would work, I'd think about it but only if it wasn't a very good sausage. I have limits. Wink

Helen you've more than earned Coventrian status through here so I'm sure you'll be there in spirit. Philip has offered to eat your fried egg'n'bacon! Big grin Edited by member, 19th Oct 2021 2:02 pm

Oh, really. That's nice. Talking of spirits, I enjoyed a tot on Sunday afternoon. If there was a lift, I would recommend the Earl, but there isn’t. Upstairs in the Earl, it actually feels like a restaurant environment, looking across to the Council House. Talking of which, I've just paid my rates online.

During my voyage to the lakes, mentioned in my out&about post, Robthu, I was delighted to find that the butchers shop in Shirley, had not become victim of Covid, as I consumed one of their sausage batches. Their sausage must rank 5K porkpower, worth an out & back journey time of several hours. By the time I was back in Coventry, I wanted another.

When I visit Coventry and stay, I often pop off to Tesco for a Cumberland sausage (not so much a ring, more of a horseshoe ) from the hot counter and a seedy panini. I feel very naughty munching them in the carpark. I think they might be the best sausages I've ever had, bar one. A little butchers in Chatburn, Lancs. However the Tesco sausages are easier to source.

Lol Tut, tut. The best sausages should be enjoyed au naturel... even in a Tesco car park.

There are mutterings about a breakfast. I was going to mention it a few days ago now my car seems ok again but the weather and now my wrist conspire against me. If I can't make whatever date you set I will enjoy it vicariously.

I'm up for a Xmas brekkie - think I'm free'ish for most dates in December. I am just getting over the delights of Covid which I tested positive for a few weeks ago but well on the mend now, even though taste and smell are still not back to normal, which in beer drinking terms is a disaster! Rob/forummers, do you want me to propose a date? Philip as our chief taste-testing officer can recommend us a venue with his breadth of brekkie-experience! Anywhere is OK by me (in Cov'ish that is! - sorry Helen! - hope the wrist gets better).

Hi all, Last weekend, I did meet the most distinguished forum folk, enjoying lunch at the Earl, whereupon I joined them. Useless for a forum meeting, because the restaurant space is upstairs, no lift, unless we can fit inside a dumbwaiter. I've enjoyed the most fabulous roast chicken dinner at the Rosebud cafe at Ball Hill just today, but the parking maybe an issue for folks there. The one good thing about the city centre is access, so I leave that there for the supreme committee of the forum 2021 team to decide.

It's definitely worth proposing a date - not many Saturdays remaining 'tween now and Christmas! (Although it's not the end of the world if we need to meet in the New Year.) My own view, keeping things simple, I think the two most successful places we've used so far are Wetherspoon's at the Flying Standard, Trinity Street - and The Coundon, in Barker's Butts Lane. Wetherspoon's is nice and central, and tables can be arranged to suit our needs. The Coundon is not quite so central, but has ample parking and a nice large table that can seat about 14 or so. Any other ideas gladly considered..... Thumbs up Cheers

Crikey, you are right, Rob. 'tis flying by. Right, December 4th or 11th? Either venue ok for me, but 'Spoon's being more central is probably easier for all?

Sounds like "It's Flying Standards" by! Makes sense!

Both are OK for me.... anyone else have a preference?
