Really hope I can make it! It would be useful for me to take the Tuesday off and stay in London at a friend’s house that night, rather than travel back- but it all depends if they will let me have the day off as it’s the first week of term. I’ll let you know as soon as I find out.
I would love to! I guess the only issue is that I’m not that au fait with what’s hot and what’s not in the old Smoke. I rarely go out to eat there. But if people suggest things, I’m very happy to organise/book etc.
On the subject of timing, I’d be able to make a weekend at lunch, but weekdays are not really possible, coming from outside London, and working. Definitely interested in principle in the future, but won’t be able to make this one.
Thank you for letting us know. But do we really need to be told how to pronounce riesling? (‘reece-ling’ in case you are wondering) If we are assumed to be able to manage the rest of wine 27’s name (Corralillo, for example), I think we be trusted with riesling.
I am happy to book a table.
Hawksmoor Guildhall is less than 10 mins walk from Merchant Taylors Hall. i suggest I book for 8:15. ie we leave tasting at 8pm.
5 of us still a good number. can everyone just confirm they are still ok for this.
no offers that i could see so we would be on the a la carte menu
Hawksmoor has a £5 corkage charge on a Monday.
how much are we likely to drink post tasting ??
I can offer a cali cab sauv
or perhaps in a Sth american vein a Chilean Cab Sauv
or maybe a vin de constance for pud.
