We have arranged a Spring Lunch this year at the Crown of Crucis, Ampney Crucis, Cirencester, GL7 5RS. Some of you will recall that this was the venue for our Christmas Lunch in 2016. The Crown is a country inn and hotel in the heart of the Cotswolds, set beside the Ampney Brook and is about 5 miles from Cirencester. The hotel is contemporary and stylish but still friendly and packed with character.

We have opted for a 2 course lunch and the menu choices are as follows:-

Main Courses

Roast Loin of Pork with Stuffing

Nut Roast & Goats Cheese with a Spicy Tomato Sauce (V)

Lemon Cheesecake

Raspberry Meringue Roulade

All served with cream

Served with Coffee/Tea & Mints

The time for the Lunch will be 12 noon for 12.30 and the cost will £27.50 per person, to include the lunch, coach and gratuities.
