Post run refreshments
If pubs have reopened we will aim to have some post-run drinks in a local pub beer garden.
It's unlikely we will be able to have a group lunch together, so please arrange this yourself or bring some post run snacks.
If we can reserve an area we will, however we don’t formally book a table as this often requires a deposit/exact numbers. If the chosen pub/cafe is full or busy we will try somewhere else.
