We are meeting for lunch at Barbakan in York at 12.30 on 22 November. Anyone who would like to join us will be very welcome.
The restaurant is a short walk (about 20 minutes) from the main line station.

Too short notice for me unfortunately. I'm sure you'll have a great time though.

I'm really looking forward to the lovely Polish food and cakes at Barbakan - and it's Christmas Market time in York, too. Hope some of the North Yorkshire and Teesside Grans will be able to join us.

Hello marydoll
Hope you'll soon feel well enough for another meet-up - followed by a quick visit to Primark, of course.

Hoping that some more Yorkshire Grans will join us on the 22nd. Go on! You know you want to!.

The more the merrier Kirbylass.
See you on the 22nd at Barbakan.

Artyfarty Fri 08-Nov-19 12:23:36

Definitely the more the merrier! Looking forward to meeting old friends and new.

oldgoat Sat 09-Nov-19 08:50:32

I'll be booking the table at Barbakan on Monday.
It would be great to have some more Grans meet us for delicious Turkish lunch and maybe a look around the Christmas Market.

oldgoat Sat 09-Nov-19 11:13:11

Actually, it's Polish food at Barbakan ( another senior moment!).

Artyfarty Sat 09-Nov-19 14:34:02

😂 oldgoat Turkish, Polish it was delicious! I’m going to leave room for a dessert this time. 🍰🥮🍨

oldgoat Sun 10-Nov-19 08:43:39

I've never managed a Barbakan pudding either artyfarty but those cakes are calling me. Must make room this time.

oldgoat Fri 15-Nov-19 08:19:02

Just one week to go until the York meetup at Barbakan Polish Restaurant, Walmgate, at 12.30 on the 22nd Nov.

I've booked a table for 6, so we've got room for one more if anybody fancies joining us for delicious food and a good chat.

oldgoat Thu 21-Nov-19 08:18:57

Looking forward to the York meetup tomorrow at 12.30pm Barbakan, Walmgate.

Had a great afternoon in York with these lovely ladies. Photo shows us just about to demolish dessert. The portions were huge so just ordered three with five spoons!

Another friendly get-together yesterday with excellent food and massive cakes; three cakes and five spoons and we still couldn't finish the meringues. Good photo showing the dainty puddings artyfarty.

Nice to meet you kirbylass and
thanks for the recipe. It sounds delicious.

See you all in the new year, I hope.

Good to see all you grans again. The Barbakan was such a lovely place to have our lunch. I would certainly be happy to go there for our next meet up. Great food and those puds were something else!
