I asked around and one place that might be a possibility is the Woodman 
Inn in Gilesgate. I believe a chess club sometimes meet there. In the 
interests of NELUG I popped in yesterday lunchtime for a reccie. The 
beer is fantastic. Non-smoking in the bar area and then it snakes round 
to a pool table and a longish narrow (smoking) area at the back. I was 
chatting to the barmaid and she said she'd seen the chess players in 
this bit. You can't book it or anything. I explained about NELUG and she 
said the owner wasn't around but was due back soon. I drank more beer 
and waited but the owners didn't show.

It's a possibility I suppose. I couldn't see any sockets for plugging in 
kit and it's a bit rough and ready. I didn't really know what to make of 
it. Probably a bit small to be honest and you certainly couldn't reserve 
any space. There's no separate room. It might be worth investigating if 
we can't get anywhere else.

Yep that'd be fine by me.
