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 function for 2021 was a convivial luncheon at the Anglers Tavern, Moonee Ponds, on Tuesday 12th January. Around 30 members and guests were pleased to be able to meet in person to welcome a year that is hoped to be better than 2020.

The first Club Luncheon for 2019, in January, was held at the Anglers Tavern, Moonee Ponds. As this was the first Club function for 2019, 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.
In March, our Club had a wonderful luncheon at Old Man Drew, Ascot Vale. This “Café and Fine Food Merchant” operates in a lovingly restored historic building dating from 1868. We all thoroughly enjoyed the high quality and beautifully presented food (finishing with coffee and tea served in fine bone china cups and saucers), as well as looking through the other restaurant rooms and garden.
