Hi,

am also confirming my attendance. Sadly I have also to report that George cannot make it to this tasting but EDT has agreed to step in. So please change attendee list.

regards

OK costs..

16 vintages of Offley, ranging from 1924 to 1985, split 13 ways, and not including food or tip, works out at a modest £129 pp

Possible add-ons:

Offley 1910 - adds £15 pp

Offley 1975 - adds £3 pp

Tom: for the placemats, I guessed who was bringing what. Please tell me definitively — perhaps following careful checking of the placemats.

I won’t have time to assemble a food order. Please could somebody else.

Tom: have you requested an appropriate number of glasses? Do so!

Draft of food order.
CHECK YOUR ORDER. IF YOU DIDN’T CHECK, AND IT’S WRONG, IT’s YOUR FAULT. PLEASE CHECK IT NOW.

Not wrong. However if this reply seen in time, I would like "Flatbread, lemon & coriander houmous" (listed under bar snacks rather than starters on current menu) as a starter instead of my default, please. If not seen in time to modify, no worries, happy with default. Thanks.

You have the right bottle for me on the placemats and my default order has also been pasted correctly. Thanks.

Placemats are showing me bringing ‘72 but Tom hasn’t asked for it...

Is it still needed from me? Will see if I can retrieve it in time. Probably not going to be the star of the lineup I would suggest :D

I don’t know. Please call Tom — he isn’t paying close attention to this thread.

† Where “close” = any at all.
