    Lesson learned from this evenings pub meet - Ye Olde Bev has a quiz on a Monday night and gets very crowded. So the plan is to try a different pub next month so:

    When: Monday 10th March - 1930
    Where: George and Dragon, Fordwich, Kent. - CT2 0DB

    The pub has a large car park, serves good food, as well as a good selections of beer, and should be quieter on a Monday evening.
    Those travelling by means other than car, the nearest station is Sturry, on the Ashford-Ramsgate line, an the pub is on National Cycle Route 1.

    Hope to see people there.

    This group is just starting out. If you were thinking of coming last night and bottled it or couldnt make it, nows the time. We didnt know each other and got on fine. Again, all are welcome whatever your level. If you fancy talking about kit you have (or not) and your experiences big or small, or any other random stuff come down. going for the grub by the sounds of it! See you there.

    Don't know if it's any help, however:

    Nearest station is Sturry, on the Ashford - Ramsgate line. From there it's a 5 minute walk up the road to the pub. There are also buses that go past the station from Canterbury, Herne Bay/Whitstable, Margate, and Ramsgate.

    The pub is also on National Cycle Route 1.
