Beating Retreat


Tue, 27/06/2017 - 19:00

The Pinstriped Highlanders – the pipers of the Highland Society of London who play every year for the Highland Ball at the Banqueting House, Whitehall - will beat retreat for the Little Ship Club.  This event will take place by arrangement of our Past Commodore, Michael Forbes Smith, who is one of their members.

Following the first course, the pipers will play on the Thames Pathway, followed we hope by a lowering of the Colours by a small detachment from URNU.  Following Colours, the second course will be served, after which there will be time to relax at the bar, meet the pipers and bring the evening to a convivial close.


Main course Pork cutlet, mushroom and tarragon sauce Savoy cabbage and new potatoes

Dessert White chocolate tart, raspberry coulis, vanilla ice-cream

Vegetarian (Could you please let us know by 7.00pm) Penne pasta with mushroom sauce, parmesan, truffle oil
