    Glad to hear I won't be roaming around in Oxford, wondering whether there are other ProZ members roaming around too!
    So, at least that is two of us. Let us find a pub to meet and maybe we will end up with a crowd of Prozees.
    Does anybody know of a good pub or/and a nearby eating place? I will be searching too.


    Thanks for your very welcome suggestion, Berber.
    Claudette

    Restaurant and pub, Friday evening Nov 20, 2004

    New note added Friday 26 November 08.00hrs

    If your name is not on the list below and you would like to join the group, please telephone the restaurant and ask if they can fit you in. It should not be a problem, provided they know how many people to expect in order to arrange the tables.

    Browns Restaurant & Bar telphone number: 01865 511995

    Here is a list of practical information:

    1) There is a separate bar at Browns where we can meet before sitting down for the meal. I suggest that we meet in the bar at 7pm. When you arrive please let them know you are in the proz.com party.

    2) We can pay for the meal in small groups (3-5 people). When you sit down at the table decide who you are going to split the bill with BEFORE ordering any food or drink in the restaurant. Then let the waiter know who is in your group.

    3) It would make it easier if you paid by cash rather than credit card (or one credit card per group). So, bring enough banknotes and coins to cover the cost of your meal and drinks (check out the menu at http://www.browns-restaurants.com/location_pg/loc_ox.html to get an idea of the cost).

    (Thank you Claudio Chagas for recommending this restaurant and providing the address and website details)

    Browns Restaurant & Bar
    5-11 Woodstock Road
    OXFORD
    OX2 6HA

    Tel: 01865 511995

    (click on the link below for menu and drinks list)

    http://www.browns-restaurants.com/location_pg/loc_ox.html

    The table is booked for 7.30pm (this is the latest time they can accept bookings on Friday). They get very busy on Friday evenings and are unable to hold the table for us if we are late, so please arrive on time.

    After dinner the plan is to go to the pub across the road, The Royal Oak (around 9.30pm-ish), so if you would like to meet up with us later you are more than welcome. There are several rooms in the pub, so I suggest we meet up in the largest one, which is the first one on the right as you go in through the entrance.

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with English licensing laws, pubs stop serving at 11pm.

    List of names for meal Friday evening at Browns:

    1. Claudette Hepburn
    2. Richard Hall
    3. Francis Gregson
    4. Johanna Holmberg (Berger)
    5. Nicky Over

    Friday and Saturday evening Nov 22, 2004

    I will be in Oxford from Friday evening, and would also like to meet up for dinner, when a venue is suggested - I don't know Oxford either. Could I book a place at the Saturday dinner, please? (Hope they haven't all gone!)

    8 o'clock on Friday Nov 22, 2004

    I'm glad to hear we'll be a group meeting up on Friday and I think 8 o'clock would be a good time, as was suggested here. I don't know my way around Oxford at all, so it would be great if someone who knows the town a bit could suggest a venue somewhere central.

    I'll go to the UK on Wednesday to visit friends first and won't be online much after that, so it would be great if Francis could organise a list of those who'll be joining us (and perhaps confirm our reservation at the venue we decide on, once it's clear how many of us there will be).
