Lunch Group

We are a friendly group of singles and couples who meet for lunch on the 4th Wednesday of each month at as many different locations as we can find within 30-40 mins of Lostwithiel!

Between us we have discovered some really good places to eat. The lunches usually start at 12.30 for 1pm.

Members take it in turns to organise and host the lunches, so if no one volunteers there’s no lunch!!

The group has, at present 32 members, so we are unable to welcome any more at the moment, but if you are interested in joining please let me know and I can add you to a waiting list.

Update April 2020

Who knows how long it will be until we can eat out together again but virtual meals don’t quite work for me.

As soon as there is a light at the end of the tunnel we shall meet again. In the meantime stay safe and keep smiling!

Best wishes from

  Happy Christmas everyone. We had an excellent Christmas Lunch at Cloisters early in December which we all enjoyed.

At our November meeting we managed to find venues and organisers for most of our “Fourth- Wednesday -in the month luncheons” Starting with The Globe at Lostwithiel on Weds 22 January 2020, organised by Sheila Mackinder.

We have approx. 30 members and always welcome new people who like to eat out occasionally.

So if you would like to join us and would like to partake in the January lunch, please contact me by e-mail. You can use the contact button above
