The *Nosh*, Lewknor, Sunday 8th January 2017

nother New Year and as usual, weather permitting, we are aiming to gather at 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel' for our traditional, post-Christmas Nosh, lunchtime, on Sunday, 8th January 2017!

'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel' is at Lewknor (on the borders of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire) and finding your way there could not be easier! Look for Junction 6 of the M40, at the foot of the Chilterns and head towards Watlington on the B4009 (that's heading left after leaving the motorway, coming from London, or right, coming from Birmingham). The first turning on the right after leaving the motorway, takes you into the village of Lewknor and to the door of the 'Ye Olde Leathern Bottel'. Try and arrange to arrive at around opening time (12 noon) to have the best choice from the pub's excellent menu and a comfortable seat (go to for more information and a 'sample menu'!).

I've had a quick look in the crystal ball (the Romans saw no future in them) and the weekend of the 8th January is likely to be bright, cold and mostly dry in the South East but who really knows! Whatever the weather, it should be a perfect day out!!

If you need more details, contact Tony Yates (Honorary Secretary) at, or if you get lost on the day, 'phone Tony on 07973 448 023 or the pub on 01844 351482.
