Winter Drinks and Buffet

Following last year’s extremely enjoyable evening at the Iron Duke, we return to this traditional Fuller’s pub in the heart of the West End for the Pre-Xmas Drinks Party.

  • Where:
    The Boot Room, upstairs at The Iron Duke pub, 11 Avery Row, Mayfair, London W1K 4AN. See map on the Iron Duke website
  • When:
    Tuesday 15th November 2016.
  • Time:
    From 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m.
  • Cost:
    £27 per head.

As ever, there will be a mouth-watering buffet and an assembly of the finest wines for you to sample. Amid the conversation there will be the occasional brainteaser on appropriate themes and all of this is available for a very economical £27 per head.

To get to The Iron Duke take the underground to Oxford Circus (Bakerloo/Central/Victoria lines) and leave the station from Exit 3 for Regent Street West. Head down Regent Street towards Piccadilly Circus and after about 100 metres turn right into Hanover Street. Head west along Hanover Street, cross over Hanover Square, then continue straight on along Brook Street and cross over New Bond Street. Almost immediately after you cross New Bond Street there is a sharp left turn, off Brook Street, into Avery Row and The Iron Duke is 50 metres along on the left hand side.

Husbands, wives, partners, friends and guests will be warmly welcomed and we look forward to catching up with you once again on Tuesday 15th November.
