Following on from the midlands thread, anyone up for a meet up? Maybe in October? Where are most people based? City or County?

I could attempt to organise an evening pub thing, but my scope is limited to my general area (the void between Leicester and Nottingham wink ) so if there are people with a broader knowledge of pubs around Leics they might be a better choice.

Ooh, I'd like to come! Also north of Leicester, south of nottingham. Can only do evenings or weekends, and this half term is out for me as I'm away, but would like to come along if I can! smile

greeneggs, the void between Leicester & Nottingham suits me just fine! grin

GreenEggsAndNichts Thu 20-Sep-12 13:06:43

hah alright grin We can leave it to see if anyone else with a wider range replies tonight, and if not, I'll start taking names by PM and ringing round a few likely places.

Also wondering whether or not I should have namechanged for this. grin Oh you scary people on the internets!

The void suits me too!

The void too far for me as I'm not very well. It's OK though, I just may not be able to make any of the suggestions as I work full time (when well enough) and my DSs are all grown up now smile

Near that big out of town shopping centre just off the M1. No wonder I never have any money!
For those who don't drive maybe a city meet up would be an idea?

I honestly don't mind, a nice daytime meet with the kids somewhere they can run around and then maybe something a bit more urban for a night meet (tbh, I would rather go to a night meet to hide behing a g&t I don't get out much these days blush)

I'm in the void too.

Void fine for me.

Quorndon fox, packe arms, hobby horse all reasonably cheap and cheerful and I think there's a 2 for 1 or 2 for £10 hathern way. Toby carvery in lboro reasonably cheap and cheerful too.

Ye olde bulls head in woodhouse eaves could work for a slight less cheap and cheerful option.

Treblesallround Fri 21-Sep-12 12:42:09

Don't mind anywhere except the Hobby Horse. Woodhouse Eaves is lovely and easy from M1 as well as A6 and Notts side of county, but not as cheap as other options

The Manor House near Quorn is also quite nice.

I think of the ones listed, I've only been to the Bulls Head. I know Quorndon Fox is meant to be nice, and it's across the road from the bus stop if people wanted it? (The um.. 127? Whichever one runs from Leicester- Loughborough)
