Food & Drink

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

See 'Group events' on the right for dates of future meetings.

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 but it’s always a fun evening.

For dates of next meeting contact Keith.

There are currently no vacancies for the group but if you are interested in joining, please contact me and I will keep your details and be in touch should there be vacancies in the future.


A small friendly group, who meet once a month in each other's homes to enjoy a variety of dinners.

For practical reasons we are unable to enlarge the group, but if anyone is interested in forming another please contact us for information.


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

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 me a ring and with enough interest we could get a second one going.

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.

We are a social group which meets monthly at local restaurants to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Early birds can join an Early Morning Walk in the locality to work up a good appetite, or some might consider a walk after breakfast would be more appropriate.

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' box to the right and notices in the Newsletter.  Regular members of the group meet annually to plan our programme of events.

We usually meet at the Settlement on the first Friday of the month at 8 pm -  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. Contact details are below:

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

Will members please ensure that the group contacts are informed every month, if you plan to attend.


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 desert 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.

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.
