My dedicated research team did some last-minute reconnaissance in the South Bank area yesterday and upon intense discussion we decided to move the Saturday afternoon meet to a better venue, that will be more conducive to polite conversation in the sort of comfort we have naturally come to expect. Please pass this information on to anyone that you think needs to know it.

As mentioned this afternoon, further reconaissance of the Waterloo area revealed that the Wellington "Hotel" is no longer the dive it used to be for fighting squaddies and matelots and now has some rather nice sofas and tables and chairs. It is also quite big with three large sized adjoining rooms.
It also does food and at least a couple of real beers (one being the very excellent Brakspeare's) and is just across the road from the Jubilee Line entrance to Waterloo Station (or if you are in the station - walk away from the river and follow the signs to the Jubilee Line, go down the short escalator and then cross the street and you are there).
Altogether a more promising venue than the Hole In the Wall as the latter could get quite crowded and there is little room to eat food.
I would therefore recommend that the "meet" be transferred to The Wellington where at least two Cockers are staying so they can't get lost.
