    I could come and meet up but I wouldn't be able to go to Red Hot Buffet due to having other stuff plan for later that day.

    I'll be coming by train, so I might as well meet up in the station too. Are we talking somewhere on the platform or outside the entrance?

    A few people from Leicester are coming by train and getting into Nottingham station at around 2:30. If you meet them at the side entrance, next to the tram stop, they'll be able to find you there.

    Good News: I just had a look at rail fares and timings and saw it was workable.
    Bad News: I then saw it was at Red Hot, and had flashbacks of the PonyCon meal at the Cardiff Red Hot.

    The food was incompatible with my dietary requirements.

    I hadn't eaten much on the Saturday, knowing the big meal was planned.
    I didn't eat much at the meal, and retained less.
    Then the next morning I had to walk a fair way to find a bus to get back to Cardiff, on an empty stomach (all the shops in the village I was in were closed on Sunday mornings). All in all, a rather negative dining experience.

    Looking forward to tomorrow! Just a message to @KFrohman , give me a ring/text at 13:30 to let me know where you are and I'll come find you. As for the rest, @Centurion will be meeting the lot from Leicester and he will take you to the Joseph Else Wetherspoons where we will all meet up. Weather looks dodgy for Saturday so bring the right clothing! :)

    What dietary requirements to you have? This one is the biggest in the country and the staff there are very helpful in helping out in these types of predicaments.

    I can't eat olives.
    All of their Italian contained it, and I only noticed the bolognese was also containing it after putting a dollop on my plate as it was all hidden.

    Following on from TS, I've given up trying to battle buying rail tickets online. I *might* drive up for the meet part and say hi to you lot


    There were some people at PonyCon with more mainstream dietary requirements, and the staff were quite "Umm, erm".
    I think they were a bit more helpful than "The salad is gluten free" but not by much

    Ahh right I see. Would you attend if you steer clear of the Italian section? Would be awesome to see you but it would cost a lot in petrol to drive halfway up the country and back in the same day...

    It will cost me roughly £64 to get there.
    I might be able to make it [kind of out of the blue, but, eh xD]. See what I can do. :3

    Due to the new additional people attending, I have phoned the restaurant and extended the reservation for 15 people.

    Uh-oh...xD
