Tuesday March 6th 2018 at The Moonraker Hotel, Trowle Common, Trowbridge

    The Moonraker Hotel is a beautiful and interesting 500 year old building approximately nine miles from Bath. Once a manor house, then a farm and now a hotel, its restaurant offers delicious food in a cosy, comfortable and homely atmosphere. Owner Tudor Hopkins worked at The Connaught in London, and then The Gallivant in East Sussex before buying the historic Manor Hotel which he and his wife Lucy renamed The Moonraker. Michelin-trained Head Chef Dean Toon and his kitchen team have made this restaurant a very popular venue They use free-range meat and eggs together with produce from their own kitchen garden whenever possible and their very own on-site smokery. The menu they have put together for us looks delightful, with something to suit everyone.

    After lunch and a raffle, we will have a talk given by the very popular and distinguished speaker Dr Amy Frost, Curator of Beckford Tower and Bath Preservation Trust manager, entitled "How the Builders of Georgian Bath Went Bust".
