RIP Conference Regular
It is with a heavy heart and sad keyboard that I have to annouce that Le Frog, or Prego as it has been known in recent years has closed. For at least 3 years now it has been the regular venue for our after-conf meal and drinks. It never failed to produce anything less than first class food and great service. It was also the vonue for many EduGeek business meals and meetings (mostly involving Ric and) and given the proximity to the Black Bull pub next door,it was the ideal eatign venue. Apparently it closed it's doors in October, and I only noticed yesterday when the large 'To Let' sign appeared.
RIP Prego (Le Frog). You will be sorely missed.
Mind you there is a cracking new Italian opened just down the road

It's popularly probably plummeted when all the reported sightings of meatloaf dried up.

Me and my techy were only discusing it the other day when driving past the junction off the M-way saying how good it was and we should go again taking our families but that won't be occurring now then

It'll be sadly missed ... their duck was fantastic and they were fantastic when having to deal with a boisterous bunch of geeks.

Indeed. Anywhere that could cope with 40+ geeks with zero notice dropping in on them deserves to succeed. I don't think it closed due to lack of business, but rather the owners simply got out of the restraunt business.

Couldn't fault the food when I went after the conference last year.

That's a shame. Was looking forward to sampling some more of their food at some point.
