Food & Drink

Vegetarian and Vegan

We are an informal group which meets once a month to discuss vegetarian and vegan food and recipes: open to all. Please contact Lara for the date and venue of the next meeting.

We welcome new members.

Food and Cookery Group

Talk it, learn it, eat it. Share knowledge, opinions, likes and dislikes about food. Be surprised by blind tastings, share recipes, discover kitchen tricks.

We meet in Members’ houses: we chat a lot, we talk food a lot and try not to eat too much and it’s always a fun evening. For dates of next meeting contact Keith.

There are currently no vacancies but if you are interested in joining, please contact the Group Contact who will keep your details and be in touch should there be vacancies in the future.


Wine Group 3

Wine Group Three is a sociable group of amateur wine enthusiasts who take turns hosting monthly tastings that are informal, friendly and yet informative.  The group usually meets at 7:30pm on the third Tuesday of each month in the Upper Hall of Mrs Howard Memorial Hall, Norton Way South.

Our group is currently full but if you are interested in joining us please get in touch with the Group Contact who will be able to add you to our waiting list.

LALG forms new groups as existing ones fill up, so if you are interested in setting up a  new wine tasting group please contact William Armitage on 01462 643537: there would be support available.

Brief notes on previous tastings may be found below.

Lunch Club

We usually meet for lunch once a month.  For those who are tempted, please check our 'Group events' panel or contact the Group Contact.

To any LALG members who wish to join us, but are not already regular attenders: please note that it is difficult to get everyone fed within a reasonable time, so our numbers are limited to 14 persons. If you want to start up another lunch club, give the Group Contact a ring and with enough interest we could get a second one going.

It is time for someone new to take over arranging lunches. Please speak to the Group Contact if you are prepared to help.

Malt Whisky Appreciation

Those interested in sampling, comparing and generally enjoying fine malt whisky are welcome to come along to the next meeting when fine examples of this splendid spirit will be presented for members’ pleasure. 

We still have room for new members. For the details of the venue contact Grant Cameron.

Supper Club

The Supper Club is a group that meets approximately every six weeks at a restaurant for a meal. Usually it is in the evenings and within a fifteen mile radius of Letchworth. We try to have a theme to our meals, either local speciality restaurants (e.g. Black Horse at Ireland) or "outings" (e.g. dog racing at Peterborough).  We usually have between 30 and 40 people attending.

All current members of LALG are welcome to join us - look at the 'Group Events' panel and notices in the Newsletter.  Regular members of the group meet annually to plan our programme of events.

For details of future meals or if you have a venue which you could recommend and would like to share with others, then please contact Linda.

Wine Discovery

Monthly wine tastings for those interested in discovering more about wines from around the world.

Two Members take it in turn to present 8 wines, usually a mixture of sparkling white, white, red and occasionally a dessert wine.  Some months we push the boat out and those Members who love to cook show off their culinary skills, serving up delicious food to complement their selection of wines.

Do let us know if you wish to be added to our waiting list.

Wine Appreciation Group

We usually meet at the Settlement on the first Friday of the month at 8pm -  our meetings usually including wine tastings!

We currently have a few vacancies for new members. You do not need to have a great knowledge of wines, just an interest in a great evening with a lively group.

For our latest plans see the 'Group Events' panel, the current Newsletter, or get in touch with our Group Contacts, John and George.

All members are asked to please tell the group contacts each month if they plan to attend.


Firkin Club

This group meets monthly to sample real ales and to put world affairs into a personal perspective, viewed through a pint glass.

See Group Events for dates of future meetings.

New members are welcome to join us to help with tasting the latest ales.
