The popular smorgasbord has been withdrawn until further notice (for obvious reasons) but a very good four course menu with about 6 different main courses is available to Seniors Card holders for $20. Pretty hard to go past that.

The popular and well attended monthly luncheons for RAOTC members and friends in and around Perth are held on the second Tuesday of each month at the Bayswater Hotel.

The Bayswater Hotel, or ‘Basie’ as it is known locally, is conveniently located opposite the Bayswater train station. The buffet is good value and amateurs holding a Senior’s Card receive a discount. If you are in Perth on the second Tuesday of the month between midday and 2.00 pm, why not pop along for an enjoyable lunch and a chat.
