We last visited Ev in 2018 and are delighted to be returning there for our 2020 Spring Lunch. Isabella Street is a leafy pedestrian street, very close to Southwark Tube station.  Ev is part of the Tas group of Turkish restaurants. The premises occupies three large arches and our three-course lunch will be held in the spacious bar arch.  There is a sunny terrace with palm trees outside and plenty of room inside where guests can gather and chat before the lunch.

Doggett's website...


Our Summer Party will again be held at Doggetts Coat and Badge. The sunny terrace of this friendly riverside pub has a stunning view of the river and the venue provides a magnificent buffet lunch. In recent years we have enjoyed wonderful sunshine and there is plenty of space indoors if we are unlucky with the weather.

As always, this is an informal event, giving members ample opportunity to mingle with old friends and meet new ones. 


Autumn Lunch 2020

Venue:  The Savile Club

Location: 69 Brook Street, Mayfair, London W1K 4ER

Date:  Thursday 15th October 2020

The Savile Club website


Our Autumn Lunch at the Savile Club is very kindly being sponsored by Bryan Bates, who is a club member. We last visited the club to celebrate our 10th Anniversary and our Autumn Lunch promises to be a very special occasion.

The Savile Club is situated in a beautiful 18th Century house in the heart of Mayfair, a short walk from Bond Street tube station. We will have drinks in the Drawing Room, followed by a three-course lunch in the stunningly beautiful Ballroom, which is reached by an elegant curved staircase. Level access is available if required.
