At last, we are able to resume our regular branch meetings and social gatherings.

We will gather for a pint or two from 12.30pm. Meals can be ordered from an extensive lunchtime menu, if required.

A short branch meeting will take place at 2.30pm when we will update you on all the latest local pub and brewery news. There are a host of important changes going on all around the branch area. Your committee will also be seeking members views and ideas for our future meeting and events programme.

There will be an opportunity to order a discounted copy of the forthcoming Good Beer Guide 2022 for just £11 by cash or cheque (RRP £15.99). The new GBGs will be available for collection at our November branch meeting, due to be held in or near Taunton early in the month.
