Sunday Pub Lunch, Gatehead

Sunday 14th February 2016

It was a lovely dry, but chilly day with a clear blue sky, perfect for roof down driving with heater on full blast, at least for the half a dozen MX-5s in the car park, when 28 eager diners turned up at the Cochrane Inn, Gatehead for a Valentines Day Sunday lunch. The pub was very busy but we had a reserved area at the far end of the restaurant next to a roaring fire. Food and drink orders were taken very efficiently by the friendly staff, and soon we were all tucking into very tasty food and enjoying lively chat.
Passing round the tables to check that everyone was happy it soon became apparent that all were looking forward to joining in the events planned for 2016. You might even be lucky to spot Eddie ‘Van Dick’ with his twiddly moustache sporting a new MX-5 skip cap if his communications with national club are successful. Ask Eddie for further info on this if you dare!
I also handed out a number of our new Central Scotland door magnets and Alan rushed out to fit his to Rosie’s very smart Mini Cooper S as he couldn’t wait to see what they looked like.
The afternoon passed very quickly and we were soon out in the car park saying farewells and waving off the brave few with roofs down before setting off for home.
A lovely day out was had and thanks to Marcia and Raymond for organising a great venue and weather.
