What’s on Our regular meetings are held every third Thursday of the month(*) (except in August and December). Unless otherwise stated, we start the meetings at promptly 7.30pm with drinks in the bar beforehand and a meal afterwards. In addition, members and their partners, meet for a ‘Munch Bunch’ on the first Thursday of the month. These informal lunch gatherings start at 1.30pm and are an opportunity to discover new restaurants, as well as visiting old favourites, anywhere in an area within a reasonable radius of Nerja. Guests are welcomed. Members are asked to indicate their attendance to these meetings (along with details of any guests) by filling in the participation forms which can be found in the ‘Member’s section’. Our calendar for the entire year, which is updated regularly, is presented below.

Munch Bunch Venue: Venta La Vina in Vinuela is a lovely old 18th century inn which can be found a short distance up on the left hand side of the main road running through the centre of Vinuela if you are approaching from the bottom of the village. Directions: Leave the A7 (motorway) at Torre del Mar and follow the signs for Vinuela. It is ~16 kilometres from the A7 so allow a little time. If you approach from the top of the village, work your way down through the village using the new one way system. There is ample parking at the bottom of the village. Once parked go through the gardens, by the duck pond and walk up the central village road looking out for the inn on your left hand side. TIME: If you wish to walk please meet outside the restaurant at 12 noon. If you only wish to eat please be at the restaurant for 1.30pm. COST: ~E15 for menu del dia to include a drink on arrival and a coffee afterwards. I also expect to negotiate a bottle of wine between 4 on the table to be included in this price.
