The UK-P South East Meet 2009

Post by SpikeyG40 » Wed Dec 31, 2008 1:53 pm

Hello everyone

Its nearly time for the 6th South-East winter meet held in Dartford in Kent at The Wharf pub.

The meet is due to take place on Sunday 25th January 2009 at the Wharf Pub in Dartford . Here is a little info for those you us who don't no the pub:
Nestled behind the factory and office units of this business park and beside an attractive lake lies The Wharf. It is a Shepherd and Neame pub serving excellent bar meals with a restaurant below the bar area. An extensive and varied menu including a good selection of fish, my favourite remains the Carvery. Reasonably priced at under £7.00, it includes 3 meats (beef, pork and turkey), roast and new potatoes, 4 or 5 vegtables and the usual trimmings (stuffing, yorkshire pudding etc). A really pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. The bar gets very busy at lunch time but the restaurant while busy doesn't usually require booking.

The pub is located about a mile from the M25, which gives easy access from all over the South!
For those who have attended before will hopefully agree this is a great venue to hold the meet as there is plenty of parking up space and we can go into the pub, have some food, a drink and a jolly good natter! :P

We will be ariving from around 10.30 so any time after that would be good. the pub itself doesn't open till 12!

for those who don't no what to expect, here is a little taster!

The address is as follows:

The Wharf
Cotton Lake
Galleon Boulevard
Crossways
Dartford
Kent
DA2 6QL

other than that, here are some directions that have been used for the last couple of years, and as far as i am aware, no one has got lost, so:

FROM ESSEX (CLOCKWISE M25):

Travel towards the Dartford crossing, go over the bridge and go to a left hand toll booth - take the NEXT exit. At the first round about go straight over (2nd exit) signposted CROSSWAYS. You will now be travelling parallel to the M25. Go straight over another round about, and the road bears to the right, then there's another roundabout. Turn right here. Go straight over the next little roundabout and the pub is on the right hand side.

FROM KENT (ANTI-CLOCKWISE M25):

Travel towards the Dartford crossing, just before the crossing, take the last exit you can. (1A) At the round about, take the 3rd exit (right) and cross over the M25. Now bear left (1st exit) towards CROSSWAYS!. You will now be travelling parallel to the M25. Go straight over another round about, and the road bears to the right, then there's another roundabout. Turn right here. Go straight over the next little roundabout and the pub is on the right hand side.


FROM M2/A2 (EITHER DIRECTION)

Come off at Bluewater turning and head towards bluewater. When you see the signs that say "USE BOTH LANES FOR BLUEWATER" stay in the right hand lane. When you get to the roundabout, go straight ahead (i think) and join the dual carrage way. At the next round about (macdonalds on the right) go straight ahead. At the next round about (ASDA) turn left. Go straight over the next one (Burger King) and then left at the next one. Straigh over the little roundabout and the pub is down there on the right.

Thanx to Mole for writing these for the meet a couple of years back! anyway, whos up for it?

Please add your names to the list:

Hope i'm free to go to this when the time comes. I've never personally met any one of the UK-P's members so it'd be great to do so now as I spend most of my time on this forum.
