South East Associates
Autumn Pub Lunch
- Wednesday 10th October -
‘Indian Summer Lunch’ would have been a more fitting title for this year’s gathering of thirty-six Associates, partners and friends. The twenty-degrees-plus sun shone down on the ancient Old Mill House at North Wanborough, just outside Odiham and close to the Hampshire-Surrey border.
The present building has sections dating from the 17th century, but the site of a mill is recorded in the Domesday Book and was later linked to King John’s nearby castle, from whence he rode to meet his Barons at Runneymede in 1215.
It has been a pub-restaurant for some 25 years now and it retains old world charm inside with delightful surroundings centred around the original mill pond.
So popular was the Mill in the glorious weather on the day, a few of our number needed to park creatively as spaces became somewhat limited. However once inside we occupied a wing totally removed from the crowd in which we sat down to a splendid lunch of generous portions of traditional ‘pub grub’ favourites.
The proceedings continued at a leisurely pace until late in the afternoon when sun still shining, meals digested and car-park congestion abated, friends and colleagues bade farewell.
