Local Dining Out Report for May 2015

Wednesday 20th May 2015

Local Dining Out Group Dinner - at The Rockingham Arms, West Wellow, Romsey

The Rockingham Arms at West Wellow, near to Romsey is tucked away off the main Salisbury road and may not be easy to find. Once we arrived there, on Wednesday 20th May, our group soon filled 'The Cabin' restaurant. This was our 5th Local Dining Out Evening and the first to fill the 31 seater coach In addition to this John & Pam Morris joined us by car from Romsey.

The pre-arranged main courses started to arrive at the tables around 8:15pm. Each of the choices was really nice. Some people having the risotto expressed a wish to have a different vegetarian choice in future as the risotto, although varied, was becoming a little boring as a choice, after several months. This was no reflection on the Rockingham Arms risotto. This request has been taken on board for the future. The dessert followed on and each choice was superb. Below we have a few examples of the main courses and a picture of the Rockingham Arms team.

After dinner we had our monthly raffle. This was the first of two raffles with a new charity. Profits from our raffles for May and June will be going to the Diabetes UK charity and we managed to raise £35.04 at The Rockingham Arms. The raffle for March/April had raised a total of £41.22 and we made that up to £50.00 total (the balance from WVN funds) We sent a cheque for £50.00 to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
