For those wishing to continue discussions over dinner, we made a reservation at a local restaurant.

Unfortunately, we are not able to cover the cost for this, so participants will need to pay for dinner themselves.

We have a reservation at the Hole in the Wall for 7pm (3 course set menu for £25).
