Local Dining Out Report for January 2015

Wednesday 21st January 2015

Local Dining Out Group - First Dinner - at The Green Dragon at Brook

.  

The Green Dragon was an excellent choice for our first Local Dining Out experience. A lovely atmosphere with the choice of tables for two, four or six people. Each table nicely laid with a candle burning and overhead subdued lighting.

Our evening began, as arranged, with everyone being picked up by coach starting in Fordingbridge, through to Breamore, Woodgreen and Hale and then on to the restaurant. Our driver Tony kept good time and we arrived slightly earlier than expected, ready to purchase our drinks at the bar with time to chat.

Dinner service started at 8pm with our delicious starters arriving table by table.

Superbly cooked main courses followed a little while after. Most main courses came with nice roast potatoes and a selection of vegetables, the fish of the day was reportedly very good as was the vegetarian option. Time seemed to fly as everyone was busy eating and chatting. Some people bought extra drinks and we had a breather before our deserts arrived.

As soon as everyone had finished, we stared selling the tickets for our simple raffle for the evening. Volunteers folded up the stubs and David helped by organising the drawing of the tickets. We had five prizes on offer amongst twenty-five people. With all those tickets sold, why did someone have to draw my ticket first - sorry everyone!

Soon it was time to say goodbye and board the coach to return home. We adjusted some of the drop off points to be nearer to the houses of people living along our route. Most people would have been home by 10:30pm maybe slightly later in Fordingbridge.

We would like to thank everyone who came on our first Local Dining Out event and made it such a lovely evening. You may be interested to know that our raffle raised £16.10 after the cost of prizes and this will start a fund to make a donation to a charity in the future. We would welcome your thoughts on which will be our first charity. There will be more Local Dining Out events in the future and everyone will be notified.
