Join us for our next Local Dining Out Evening

at The Elm Tree Inn at Ringwood
on Wednesday 23rd September

Wednesday 23rd September 2015

Location: .   The Elm Tree Inn - Ringwood
Located just outside of Ringwood town on the Hightown Road, the Elm Tree Inn, recently changed hands, is a really lovely old property. As before we visited this restaurant and were very pleased with the food and drinks available. On the day we visited it was very busy despite being earlier in the week. We hope you will really like this location.

Dining: .   Restaurant
We have arranged to use "The Barn" at The Elm Tree Inn for our September Dining Out evening. This building is attached to the main building and provides a brillant but more private atmosphere. The bar is very close to this room which has the character of the old beams in the roof combined with pleasantly arranged tables for our dining experience.

Travel: .   Herrington's Coach Door to Door
We have arranged pick up points as near as possible where you live, more points can be added. Our coach will be from Herrington's Coaches, the coach size will depend upon ticket sales. This month we have added a pickup in Sandleheath (picture is not of the exact coach expected)

Drinks: .   Buy your drinks at the bar on arrival
We will go to the bar area on arrival to buy our drinks. You will find an excellent choice of beers on sale along with a selection of soft drinks. An excellent selection of wines are available by the bottle or different size glasses. Please remember to pay for your drinks as you go through the evening.

Food: .  

Finest Food
Our menu for September includes some variations on old favourites plus one or two new choices. New Main Courses include Fish & Chips and the Vegetarian choice. Desserts include Apple & Cinnamon Crumble and Lemon Posset. Tea and Coffee will be available for you to buy after your Dessert.
(see choices below)

Raffle: .  

Charity Raffle
Our raffle for September & October will be in aid of the British Heart Foundation and we hope once again to raise much needed funds for this good cause. Profits from our previous raffles have gone to Cancer Charities, Motor Neurone Disease Association, Diabetes UK and the Alzheimer's Society.
