Local Dining Out Group August Dinner

Wednesday 23rd August 2017

Tickets £26.00 per person

Summer BBQ at The Yew Tree Inn at Odstock


This is a really nice, older and more traditional Public House & Restaurant in the more rural setting of Odstock, near Salisbury Hospital. It has always been a popular venue. On Wednesday 23rd August we will enjoy a Summer BBQ outside in the garden at The Yew Tree (unless wet, then inside) We will not be booking individual menu choices as you will make these on the evening except we do need to know who would like a meat
or the vegetarian option.

Restaurant is not on

Local Dining Out Group Monthly Charity Raffle:

We will be supporting Waggy Tails Rescue with our August raffle. Based in Wimborne, Parkstone, Ferndown & Charminster, they rehome animals within East Dorset and West Hampshire. This enables them to conduct prehoming checks and follow up visits. Waggy Tails also runs an advice service which deals with pet problems and can direct enquiries to the best available help if they cannot help themselves.

The Waggy Tails story is about happy dogs, happy people and happy homes. They always put the animal first – then the rest will follow.  They have a no destruction policy. No healthy animal is ever put to sleep, which means that as well as re-homing they also look after dogs in long term foster homes. These tend to be dogs who are too ill or too old to be re-homed but they feel that these “oldies” have a right to a dignified and happy retirement. They need foster homes and sponsorship for our “oldies” whose vets bills are consistently high!

You can read more about this charity on their website Waggy Tails Rescue
