Had a quick look and found this bar not to far away from Excel:

http://www.foxbars.com/foxconnaught/connaught-bar/

I don't know the area and have no idea if this place is any good to meet but looks like there's loads of space and a decent outside area, let's just hope it's decent weather!

Hi all,

Just to help out a little . Good choice , nice pub right in the heart of the excel complex . Would be a good central place to meet for everyone for the Thursday night meet up and other nights. I worked in the area for a few years.

Hope that helps I will be the guy sitting in the corner with my t shirt on.

Cheers darren

Fox is ideal, nice pub, good prices, lots of space and just outside the front doors of Excel.. :)

I'll be there Thursday setting up during the day and am staying in the premier inn next door to excel. There'll be a bunch of us there aiming for the bar !! :)

There appears to be 2 Fox bars, the Connaught which is a short walk away from Excel and the one actually at Excel.

Any preferences?

I have a sense of great epicness approaching. This is going to be fun. Sounds like I'll need to book Monday and Tuesday off just to recover.

I'm worried about the calculation:

Serious Curry and ale Thursday + queues Friday = possible shatting myself.

Sod it, I'll just stuff a spare set of y fronts in my backpack!!

Whooooooooo!!!!

Looks like there is no argument on where we are going to meet up and have a drink but what about food? I found a few lists of restaurants near the excel, not many indian restaurants though by the looks of it:

This one is quite close by the looks of it: http://www.restaurantmarina.co.uk/

I'm easy as to where we end up but suggestions/input definitely welcome :D
