  2. I don't really want to encourage anyone to come to Lincolnshire to enjoy our relatively empty roads, but Henry Cole gave it a plug last week so I suppose its too late!
    Willingham Woods Picnic Area just up the A631 from Market Rasen - I wouldn't even give the catering from the kiosk 1 star and I'm not fussy.
    Seven Districts Coffee Roasters on the A46 between Lincoln and Market Rasen - A bit posh for me but the Mrs likes it and the Cake is good.
    Claythorpe Watermill - as featured on The Henry Cole Show - Nice setting, gravel parking, not that posh and they sell Dennetts Ice Cream.
    To be honest I know most of the roads in the North of the County but I don't like Coffee and I only usually stop for Fuel, Ice Cream or a Hedge break, so my knowledge of Watering Holes is limited.
    Ice Cream
    Blyton Ice Cream on the A159 Gainsborough to Scunthorpe Road (not been there for a while even though its close to home)
    Applebys on the A1031 between Grimsby and Mablethorpe (a bit too much Ice in it last time I went).
    Davidsons in Peel - Isle of Man - Long way to go unless its TT time but probably my favourite.

  3. Lovely place, good food & great coffee (we buy our coffee beans from there)
    The only negative points are that it suffers from a MAMIL infestation as well as a car park full of Mummy SUVs, but good otherwise.
     
  4. South East England - GU24 8HU

    had a decent cup of tea and breakfast in here, and a chance to see a few planes taking off and landing.
    Current opening hours apparently:-

    Monday to Friday 08.00-16.00
    Saturday 09.00-16.00
    Sunday 10.00-16.00

  6. I've heard a rumor that Caffine+Machine are opening another venue later this year near Flitwick in Bedfordshire.
    Anyone else know anything about this?

  9. East Bilney Lakes, Norfolk. A hidden gem. Wood enclosed fishing lake with good grub; indoor outdoor seating. Good size gravel car park which is flat.

  11. Ye Olde Naked Fella in Settle, North Yorkshire: https://yeoldenakedmancafe.com

    But most riders mill about on the other side of the road, where good chips are to be had.

  13. I’ve twice recently used the Codford tearooms just off the A36 between Warminster and Salisbury, only eaten cake with coffee, both excellent.

    Cracking venue near Stratford upon Avon. Only recently opened and unlike the other local venue does not charge to park up.
