Not good news I'm afraid,breakfast is on a first come,first served basis,and I've just been told by them that the time we want to come in,is their peak time and it's going to be difficult.The lady also told me that 10.30 is the cut off time on a Sunday.The only time that she suggested was at 8 a.m when they could probably fit a large party in.So it's looking iffy,will have to leave this one with you guys,I'm afraid. :'( The only alternative...would be the jungle café,if it's still open, Mark will possibly know on that one, if not things are not looking good :-\

Usual patter from the staff Ken . . . they are overworked /under staffed,( as we see at the last meet here) would not worry about it too much . If we are there for 10am sharp or a bit before , should be ok IMO.  But Sundays are the busiest day for Toby's.
We could always have a carvery lunch from 12 onwards if we cannot be accomodated, but my feeling is it will be ok. We'll just have to save a seat for Nick ;)
 
I did not pursue trying to book a table or two , as you never know who is going to turn up on the day  . We have had a few late pull outs recently . . . they all say thay are coming  . . .& then in the final week we start getting retractions ::) ::)

Lets just go with it  . . . as don't fancy The Jungle Cafe  personally . . .but i will go with the flow  :y

Cannot comment on that as I'm over in Essex  . . . . .  what about parking ?

My opinion is that it's too near the date to start swapping venues  :-\

Usual format with meets on here is  . .we decide where & when & stick with it

But as I said in an earlier post on this thread  . . I will go with the flow

If it's gonna be changed  . . .then do it ASAP  ;)

I am more than happy to stay with the original but as it has been said it will be busy and may not be able to cater for us just a thought though what about if we all still meet up at the original venue but if it can't take us then go on to Nell's as it is a very good café and plenty of parking too. Its only around a mile away at the next exit on the A2

As Nitro would say "sounds like a plan" . . . but IMO there will not be a problem at the Toby if we are there for 10am  . . .Nick excused of course ;)
We are not looking to seat a "coachload" . . in fact I cannot remember a previous Kent meeting where there has been more than around a dozen attendees ::)
May be a few more this time , who knows ?
At this Toby some tables seat 6  but most tables are for four. will we be able to get tables together for all ? . . .who knows . But have breakfast & then we can mingle around the cars in the car park after that  . . .
Thats my tuppence worth on it anyway  ;D ;D ;D

I expect to be there at 10, rather than for 10. If you grab a table as soon a few people turn up, I'll join you all as soon as I can.

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

I'm from Essex .  .so not a clue  . . . relying on local knowledge from you Men of Kent

Alarming Man  Mark posted it up saying closed  . . .He's never usually  wrong & he lives near by

Also  . .I did mention it in the office this morning & a guy who lives over there in your neck of the woods said warning signs were up  . . . :-\ :-\

but should not affect my trip to the Toby as straight down the A2 from the bridge :y :y
