The Red House ..... News

I've spoken to The Red House, they'd welcome us along no problems. The food has changed though, it's no longer "pub grub", you know the thing....scampi and chips and so on, but a Bistro Menu in the afternoon......2 courses for £13.95
This is served between 12 and 2.15pm. The landlord would need a booking with numbers.

So, what do you guys think? Good deal or not. If we go for it lets confirm numbers and I'll get it booked, otherwise we'll find somewhere else.

To continue the Ball Rolling

You know the score.....copy and paste the list into your own reply adding names and numbers for food, if we can get this going I'll contact the Pub again with the booking.....I'll say food for 1.30pm, if we get there for 12'ish gives up some time for a natter and to go ooh and arhhh at each others non MB motors. Of course non defectors welcome, but I'd like as many NON M-B's to turn up for the gag to work.....otherwise we'll get larf'd at. Me for leaving oily deposits all over the car park......well it is a Rangie.

I have to object. Chyrsler were going bust, Daimler benz merged with them. now supplied old mercs and lets them add there own bodywork, and now chrysler is on the up again.

BMW did the same with Rover and thats all hunky dory aint it! FORD went one better, they Bought Jag while it was doing bad finacially, Aston while it was doing what it alway did, and Land Rover. All three would be sold tomorrow as the Ford company is struggling. But here is the main point.

the 4.2 in the jag, is in the range rover, and with a bit of fiddling, finds itself as a 4.3 in the Aston. The focus 2.5 turbo is not in the volvo as some claim, the volvo 2.5 turbo is in the focus. But VW are now supplying Mercedes with a 1.9deisel for some models. none badged as mercs......yet!

At least I have kept up with the Chrysler bit of daimler Chrysler. surely thats just life imprisonment not worthy of hanging?

We should Hang Maff tho. he has a garage full of Fords now! And he has got himself Married!:)

And Mac should be shot on sight! Lotus are owned by a Malayasian company responsible for global warming.

You do give in easily. This is not being a traitor, it is a clear case of desertion in the face of the enemy, and with the way standards dropped at Mercedes after the Chrysler merger there can be no more henious crime than that of Chrysler desertion, I therefore ask the Court of Prostitution to ask the defendant how he pleads to the new charges. Guilty or Not Innocent!

It's a little way off yet but do we have any more to commit to the 11th Nov?

If I get firm numbers for food I can call the landlord and make a reservation.

Cheers Guys........oopps and Girls.

So far then....

Excellent, the more the merrier.

I'm looking forward to seeing the 300C in the flesh, it looks a big imposing car in the pictures.
