Luncheons are arranged for the second Tuesday of each alternate month. We visit a wide range of carefully selected restaurants that provide quality meals at a modest price. Luncheons are well supported by members.

The first Club luncheon for 2017 was held in January at the ‘Legends’ Restaurant at the Moonee Valley Racecourse. Around 30 members and friends of the Club enjoyed the food and convivial atmosphere. It started the New Year on a happy note.

The March luncheon was held at the William Angliss Institute Restaurant, Melbourne. Twenty-five members and friends enjoyed a memorable luncheon, conveniently placed at round-tables for six which made conversation easy and audible. It happened to be the first week of the academic year which meant that the serving staff were short of experience, but they had been well schooled and were pleasant and efficient. The food was universally enjoyed and it is likely that this venue will appear again on future luncheon occasions.

The May luncheon was held at the Riverside Golf Club, Ascot Vale. Seventeen members and friends enjoyed a two-course meal provided for $35 per head.

The September Luncheon was held at the RACV Club, Melbourne. Those able to attend enjoyed the ‘Celebration Menu’.

The November Luncheon at the ‘Legends’ Restaurant at the Moonee Valley Racecourse, was attended by 33 members and guests. Everyone entered the Cup Day spirit, enjoying the racecourse environment, fine food and wines, and an opportunity to watch the running of the Melbourne Cup in comfort. There were some winners and some losers, one winning over $5000.

The first Club Luncheon for 2018, in January, was held at the Lincolnshire Arms Hotel, Essendon. As this was the first Club function for 2018, there was much animated conversation and exchange of New Year greetings. Around thirty-five attended and all enjoyed the food, drinks, conviviality and ambience of the Hotel.


The next luncheon will be held on Tuesday 13 March. This will be at GG Resturant, Clarendon Street, East Melbourne.
