As this is an unprecedented and difficult time for everyone, especially as we have all had our freedom taken away, I guess that by now you need to break up the monotony and have something to look forward to.
Unfortunately this is only possible for those of you who live in the PO12 & PO13 area, but I will be making sure that the rest of you do not lose out and will be in contact very shortly. I presume you will be in!
Our PCM ‘group lunch with a difference’, is on the same date as originally planned and the menu is the same. We will not be able to supply any wine, soft drinks or hot drinks, so the GOOD NEWS is that your lunch will be cheaper! You will just have to raid your wine or beer cellar for the occasion. Cheers! There is no delivery charge, so I will keep the STAFF TIP included.
HOW IT WILL WORK
We are very proud to have teamed up with the talented Chef, Kevin, of The Anglesey Hotel (our original venue), for a unique, hot & tasty lunch ‘personally delivered’ to your door. We can all eat together, but of course we will be apart!
2-courses £14 | 3-courses £17
If you have previously booked your place and chosen your menu, all you have to do is choose a dessert (see menu tab if you are having one) and telephone The Anglesey with your name & payment, or pay me with your debit card.
If you have previously booked your place and chosen your menu, all you have to do is choose a dessert and let me know your choice. If you would prefer to complete the form again, that would be great.
You can either telephone The Anglesey Hotel with your name & payment,
or pay me with your debit card. SIMPLE!
If you have not reserved your place or chosen your menu already, please go to the online Booking Form, above, to complete.
Of course, if you have someone at home who would also like to join in the fun, please complete a booking form for them also. No worries if they are not a member, it would be rude to leave them out!
Once I have all the menu choices and payment, I will pass them on to The Anglesey Hotel with your name, address and telephone number. Don’t forget, if you wish to pay direct, please let me know you have paid on the booking form or by email.
GROUP PHOTO – For a bit of fun and to make our lunch even more exciting, I would also like you all to take a ‘photo’ of yourselves having your ‘STAY AT HOME LUNCH’. Hopefully I can then form a WhatsApp & Email ‘group’ for us to share.
It’s such a shame that we cannot currently experience the hospitality of this historic hotel restaurant in person, but I would love you to join me and everyone else in helping out one of our prestigious local establishments in these worrying times.
So please join us for what will a rather historic 54th Privilege Club Members Lunch, which will no doubt be implanted in our memory bank forever!
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate in contacting me – I’m still working as usual.

The Anglesey Hotel, The Crescent, Alverstoke
Believed to be designed by Portsmouth architect, Jacob Owen, the hotel and the Crescent were the brainchild of local entrepreneur, Robert Cruickshank. It was completed in 1830 and it is due to him that Gosport is able to boast such a fine example of monumental seaside architecture.
Noted visitors to the hotel have been frequent in history; Princess Victoria [Queen Victoria] in 1830 when she came to Gosport with mother Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg, the Duchess of Kent; in October 1839 , Capt. Charles Austen, Jane Austen’s brother, dined at the hotel giving a speech in honour of Robert Cruickshank.
