Again this year, Guy Talbot arranged and organised the luncheon at the Jai Ho multi award winning Indian restaurant in the Balcombe Road Horley. Although the Jai Ho is situated within the walls of a 17th century pub (The Coppingham Arms) The interior has been developed into a light and airy modern restaurant.

Again, the weather tried to put a dampener on proceedings, but there were a few brave souls willing to get their much loved Bentleys wet on the wettest Sunday of the year so far. Once inside the Jai Ho it was warm and welcoming.

After meeting old and new friends in the bar we were shown to our reserved dining area. Those of us that had been there before were looking forward to another sumptuous meal.

We were not disappointed. The quality and quantity of the delicious and varied starters, main courses and sweets were second to none. There was not much left when it came to the coffee and mints.

After chatting to our tablemates for quite a long time it was decided to vacate the Jai Ho so they could ready the restaurant for the evening session, How good of us as it was still raining.

Once again we must thank Guy Talbot for all his hard work in arranging and coordinating this very popular event. We look forward to the next one.
