This evening we went to the Siam Palace Thai Restaurant, Chesterfield. Sandie had booked our table somewhat earlier than usual as they offer a special menu between 6pm-7pm. Three courses for 13.95 (£2 extra for prawns) there are 5 choices of starters, and choice of 5 mains. The sweet comprised of icecream with lychees, yummy. Ordinarily this would have been a really fun night, wonderful food and a laugh a minute. Tonight was just a bit different, and very special, it just so happened to be my birthday! So after a delicious meal those wonderful staff turned out the lights, played happy birthday and brought in a fantastic birthday cake, made for me by our wonderful Sandie. With cake, cards and pressies I have returned home a very happy U3Aer, (if that’s a word, if not it should be). Thanks guys, you made my birthday one I will cherish and remember for a long time xx

This evening we went on a cruise! Yes, the Supper Club cruised the beautiful and historic Chesterfield Canal. What an experience and what fun we had, we took our own wine and had a Fish and Chip supper delivered to the Narrow Boat, fresh from Chesters, by the the Narrow Boat crew, fabulous. Thanks to Sandie for a brilliant evening. For the rest, let the photographs speak for themselves.

Last night saw a small group of Supper Club regulars dine at the Bella Blu, Bolsover. As is now expected the service was great and the food delicious. A small group has the advantage that all members can enjoy a good old chinwag while enjoying our food. I am never ceased to be amazed that I always seem to be the last to finish! Not that everyone else eats at an amazing rate of knots, and I don’t, think it’s just me who talks too much, 🤣! Nevertheless we had a great evening, thanks to Sandie for her organisation.

The Clubbers went to the Boot and Shoe Bistro, Whitwell, this evening. We had such a good time, laughter was the main thing on the menu, what a lovely bunch to spend an evening with, loved every minute. The down side, disappointing food, did not deliver what they promised, so we will not be returning any time soon, or indeed, making any recommendations. I for one did not allow this to spoil the evening, we had great fun and I enjoyed the company. Thanks Sandie for your excellent organisation, can’t wait for the next outing.
