Sorry John, missed this. Short version, none currently.

I do intend to look for somewhere with a back room that serves
food/drinks that people would be prepared to travel to, but I've been
too busy recently due to work and preparing to move house. A quick
Google suggests the Clarendon is a possibility, but I'll need to see how
much it costs or whether there's a body count at which they'd let us
have it for nothing in exchange for a certain amount of money going
across the bar.

According to Ron's email, we could use the Electric Club where the Radio
Club meet, but any talks would have to be relevant to the Radio Club
members (which is fair, since it's their meeting place) and we'd be
expected to join if we go >3 times. That's quite limiting in terms of
what we could do there so it's not really suitable.

I had hoped to do a kind of easy technical meeting in 2 weeks time, like
a show and tell or something like that but I'm not sure I'll be able to
make it as I'll be moving house a few days later.

Again, if anybody knows somewhere suitable then please let me know.
