Draft of the food order.
Will be submitted on Monday, please advise of any changes required before then.

n.b. I note that the current menu has moved on, and no longer has ribeye (for which I will state that substitution with Sirloin is fine if needed), and neither the Goats' cheese salad nor truffle mac and cheese starters currently appear - I will submit as it, and we can field minor changes to these on the night if needed.
No truffle Mac and cheese-sacre bleu ! Indeed, looking at the revised menu (and unless I am going blind) there is no gammon!! Surely an aberration but can we just establish, otherwise it's a rewrite of the standard food order?

There is an even bigger probem with that menu - No Welsh rarebit!

Fortuntly I think there may be a some confusion as the normal menu with Rib eye, mac n cheese etc is still on the B&F website https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/davy ... L-Menu.pdf

I think they could probably cope with our Welsh rarebit request, even if off-menu; not sure about the rest though. Although the older .pdf is still there, I didn't notice a link to it on the current website? They do have some of the missing items on their other menus (party etc), so I'm going to submit as-is, but obviously check with them in case any changes are needed.

Updated menu draft v2, which will be submitted to B&F tomorrow morning.

Food order submitted. Potential menu confusion seems to be either a caching issue, or B&F website needs update, or both. Charles linked the correct menu, so ribeyes and mac and cheese still available. Our order is therefore mostly fine, but three items not available - Tony's and Axel's starters (per defaults) and Alex's main are the only items not available for which I need new choices against the current menu please.

Updated and hopefully final version of the food order v3 now submitted, to include changes for non-available items, believed all now ok with B&F.

Is the link correct?

Separately, if the Ports on the placemats are correct, I’ll make TN threads. Please confirm correctness.

Thank you, no it was not - I'd failed to update the version on this link. However, one of our guests has just requested a change, so there will be a further update tonight. Will check placemats again then too.

Thanks Alex.

I'm currently expecting to be at the B&F from around 13:00 to decant, and expect to start set-up and pre-pour from 16:30 for usual 18:00 start.

Start is usually advertised as being 6½pm. No problem: I’m not objecting to the extra thirty minutes of tasting time.

'27, '42, '47, and '60 are all on the scaffold, awaiting execution

Plan to double decant them between 2.00 and 3.30 and will then aim to be on parade by about 5.45 to allow time for pours
