This is the pub menu ... Fir Tree Menu

The landlord has asked us to give some indication of the number of meals and the likely choices, so ...

if you are going to eat please let Grahame know and indicate your choice from the menu. We're not sure how flexible this arrangement will be, but you MAY be able to choose an alternative on the night.

As usual, we are unsure of the numbers of runners who will come along, so if you are interested in attending please email Grahame Crawshaw  by 6pm on Saturday 25th November, indicating the number of maps required and your food requirements.
