Be Part of a Legend: Join The Rutland Society of St George Today!

What embodies Britain? Rolling hills, gracious queueing and endless cups of tea? Of course. But there is one thing we do better than the rest… a proper roast beef dinner! Come along to the Rutland Society of St George and enjoy your best roast dinner yet!

We’re a dynamic, sociable community that meets once a year to celebrate St George.

The Rutland Society of St George was founded by five Oakham residents in the 1970s. We meet annually on 23rd April – St George’s Day – to catch up, honour tradition and enjoy a very fine six-course dinner.

Become a member, and you’ll join a lively male community comprising like-minded locals. Our current body is broad and eclectic – from bankers and car salesmen to the local coffee roaster! It provides the perfect opportunity to expand your social circle!

There are no membership fees or small print. You can take a more active role if you wish, the only set arrangement is the St George’s Day Dinner. This evening is overseen by an honorary President, who is selected each year. We are constantly evolving in line with membership expectations. In recent years, we’ve moved to more contemporary readings and a less formal dress code.

Dinners are held at the Greetham Valley Golf Club, just minutes from the A1 and the Rutland Society of St George Dinner is an evening to enjoy tradition, good company and really good food! We kick off with hearty game soup before the main event:

flavoursome roast sirloin of beef, hand-carved at your table. A proper roast calls for the best accompaniments, and we guarantee seasonal vegetables, fluffy Yorkshires and classic roast potatoes in abundance! This is followed by homemade apple pie, piping hot with custard, a selection of English cheeses, followed by tea, coffee and chocolate mints. Happily fed, we now enjoy some short, witty readings plus communi- ty singing.

Keen to find out more? We’d be delighted to hear from you! Membership is open to all men on an equal basis, regardless of age or occupation. If you enjoy social gatherings but don’t want the commitment and obligation of regular meetings, then The Rutland Society of St George is for you! For details, please contact the Secretary on 01572 757416. We look forward to meeting you!
