Simply Mustangs UK would like to invite you to their monthly meeting on Saturday 11th May at the same venue as normal - now called The Royal Elephant @ The Waterwheel, Barn Hill Farm, Howden, Goole DN14 7JP.

A few of you maybe aware the Waterwheel has undergone a kitchen refurbishment with new catering management who are introducing buffet style menus.

For car clubs arriving for breakfast the plan would be to utilise the hot food servery to offer a full hot buffet breakfast, the suggestion is to offer full breakfast including tea or coffee for £10 per person or hot sandwich for £4.25.

We have a meeting planned with the venue to discuss their proposal and pricing in more detail; so things may change before the meeting.

As this is going to be the first meeting with the new catering team we ask you all to please be patient; once we have had the first meeting then we will know more where we stand.

The venue have asked if we could provide rough numbers for those wishing to eat so please comment below if you are considering eating (full breakfast or sandwich).

Once again, thank you for your patience, Peter

I’ll be there, £4.25 is still too much for a bacon sarnie though, do they not realise this is Yorkshire not London? And £10 for a brekkie?! I’m sure Toby carvery do it for like £6 and it’s all you can eat plus unlimited coffee refills for a quid extra!

... we are doing all that is possible to sort out the costs - but this is new management / new kitchens / new menu etc etc

so as Peter says - thank you for your patience

Yes, you are right - Toby breakfast plus coffee is £6.58 but another well known chain (Beefeater) is £9.50.

There have been major changes at the Waterwheel which is now The Royal Elephant at the Waterwheel and it only re-opened today. I've arranged to see the new setup tomorrow and have a chat With Andy who has indicated he is open to ideas. Obviously they do not have the same economies of scale as Toby or Beefeater but I will be using those 2 as examples of where we would like to see the pricing.

Just to throw a curved ball we could move to a lunch time meeting as the new 3 roast carvery is only £6.25......

Anyway, we all enjoy the Mustangs and the company, everything else is just a distraction and gives us something to moan about:shock:

please can attendees try to park in the spaces provided - but also

..... facing the restaurant along the far edge

that way we can fit a lot more cars in!

Exactly !

the idea is to park "across" those 4 slots- facing the restaurant - then we can get another 8-10 cars parked!

it also blocks the exit path if we do that.

we need people to park against the far hedge first rather than in the first spots as you come in as there's loads of room down the back but nobody ever parks there and we need to stop someone from blocking the entrance route in on the left just as you come in past the bike racks....
