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.
