Christmas Lunch: Urgent message from Keith Benton

Hello everyone

I have a problem with the lunch

The sales manager at Burn Hall is not willing to change the set menus and Traditional roast beef (with a £3.00 supplement) and Salmon can only be chosen from the £25.00 menu.

It seems that patronage for the last 10 years counts for nothing!

We can have the original menu at £21.00 (WW is standing the £1.00 over the £20.00 you have all paid ) or we can have a £25.00 menu. I show below the comparison

So for the trad Soup or (Prawn Cocktail) , Turkey, and  Pudding menu choices (over 80% of you have chosen this) we get nothing more than is offered  on the £21.00  menu  ie paying an extra £4.00 for nothing

My inclination is to go for the £21.00 menu but I would like you all to consider and for those who chose beef or salmon to decide whether the extra is worth it. For the other variations would you please let me know which option you wish to take

I think that we would all have to go with one menu ie we can’t have some on £21.00 and others on £25.00

I am sorry for this hassle. For the first time for 12 years I have not enjoyed the organisation of the lunch. When you stop enjoying something  it is time to give up and I would like another WW to take over for next year
