St Albans Branch Event Pre-Christmas Social 2007

On Thursday 13th December, 16 of the branch went to the training restaurant at West Herts College in Watford for our Christmas meal. This is a five star restaurant. We sat at two tables for eight. The Chairman and my Dad had checked out the restaurant a couple of times before and had come back with good reports. This time the student waiters and waitresses were all wearing Christmas hats. The food was hot and the service was very good. The wine waiter worked very hard on all our orders – getting most of them right. Our table was adding and deducting marks for good and poor service from the students. The students were in the plus points by the end of the meal. We had nice party hats, party poppers and streamers. We all enjoyed the meal and I wish we could go back there next year because it was brilliant. Some of us are in fact going back again after Christmas because it is £5 per head for a three course meal for the first two weeks!
