Fantastic, nc! Had to check out lots more. I love this country ;-)
Not ideal for dieting though.

I've got the CD if you're interested? It's called 'The Word on the Pavey', not available from Amazon.

No, it's OK thanks. I need to read the words!

Anyway - revenons à nos moutons; anybody fancy Perth?

will pass on tattie scone, but if u mean roll & square sausage, love them, with lashings of brown sauce. someone suggested as name for new forth bridge the "salt & sauce bridge" - shame it didn't make the shortlist.

I fancy Perth.

Plenty of eateries in Perth. Sad to say my number one recommendation and one of my fav restaurants anywhere The North Port (just round the back the concert hall) no longer do lunches. Breizh not too far from it (the concert hall) is another excellent eatery that's that wee bit different. There is of course a vast choice, the street of St. Johns square appears to have a restauranyt in every building and plent of other interesting looking places dotted about up wee side streets

interesting, peter, Breizh is Breton for Brittany. do they do crêpes & cider ?

Bad enough they wee up the side streets without doing crêpes.

Ignoring BN....

Very French menu, looks yummy. Bit pricey though unless they do a cheaper lunch menu.

Hi Andy - yes, it's a crêperie.

Maybe they'll have a marchepied méchant for Brassy.

They doo doo crepes at times. Sort of Franco/ Italian type place.

I've only ever had had lunch there Lez and never thought it too pricy speaking as one who likes his value for money.

Which reminds me there is a wee Italian up the street - heading for , you've guessed it, the concert hall - which does quite good lunch time deals. It's not often you can say anything Italian is reasonably priced.

I lived in Edinburgh for most of the 70s, and just the mention of Café Royal makes me thirsty.

No one has objected to Perth, so on that basis, here's the 'Breizh' menu for your consideration, folks. Any thoughts?

Any preference for days of the week? We've usually managed a mid-week meeting, but there's probably no reason it couldn't be a weekend, if that would suit better. The first week in July has been mentioned, but it's not set in stone.

Let's get this show on the road!

Could they make that any smaller!!!! Still, found some zoom options with r-click.

That does seem a bit pricier than I remember but I'm OK with it, happy to go elsewhere if others not. The have a specials board usually as well.

School hols so I'm OK with whatever day

Any day's fine for me.

I'd prefer to avoid Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Nothing in the diary but hard to forecast work or parental health events. Happy to go along with restaurant choice - hardly ever go there so I'll go with anything Peter recommends.

And I think JB is OK for that week also . So - Thursday 4th, Friday 5th, Saturday 6th or Sunday 7th July in the Fair City of Perth? Any preferences? How about it Craig?

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Jun 2013 23:27:45 BDT
aye, whatever's good - should be ok - while since i've been up that way.

Not Sunday for me if poss. - no bus to the station and only one suitable train. Sorry, I know I said all days were fine, I'd forgotten about Sunday transport. Other days all fine.
I keep drooling over that menu!

My leave arrangements have changed, nc. I had the first week in July booked, but recently had to take time off unexpectedly. However, I leave it to folks to come up with a date and I'm sure I'll be able to make it.

Would the Saturday be OK for you then JB?

Would indeed, Les.

margo et al, wish i could make it, i'd go for the black pudding & scallops followed by a v. rare fillet steak with bordelaise sauce.
