Tuesday 13 August was the date for the annual Probus Summer Pub lunch and this year Barton’s Mill in Old Basing was the chosen venue. Thirty six arrived simultaneously at the appointed hour of 12 noon that at first glance appeared to cause difficulties for the bar and kitchen staff as there was some rumour that it could be anything between 45 minutes and one hour to get our food.
Reality proved better than the forecast and although there was a crush at the bar placing orders the food arrived in the sort of time usually seen in such establishments.
The weather turned out pleasant and sixteen sat outside and twenty in the heavily beamed room slightly in the dark but it is possibly very welcoming in the winter when the fire is lit.
