    There's a good brew stop in the Trough of Bowland on the main Trough road by Langden (about 2 miles past Dunsop Bridge). New chap has the van and its spot on - worth a trip if you've not been through the Trough !

    Hark T'Bounty - Slaidburn

    This pub is really nice- just up the road from the cafe in Slaidburn.

    They do a Sunday roast lunch offer - two for £15 including soup starters.

    Everytime I have left I have been completely stuffed.

    ROSE GARTH TEA ROOM AT RAVENGLASS(CUMBRIA)

    Perfect spot to unwind after some of the best roads in England, and great views and food too !(Local bikers know this well, with Hardknott not far away)

    Good Brew stops

    I can second the Naked Man Cafe in Settle town centre, good cakes too!

    My fav stop in Hawes is the Pen-e-garth (dunno if that's spelt right!) Cafe and that can be before or after a double burger at Devil's Bridge - Kirkby Lonsdale.

    At the mo, I'm on a yellow 56 GS but that will change colour over the winter... just unsure what colour to paint it. Dakar? Motorsport/30th anniversary? Summat else?

    The Filling Station Cafe, Keswick

    There's a new bike friendly cafe opening in Keswick, The Filling Station Cafe.

    Opens 3rd Dec, there's an article in Motorcycle Monthly and they've got a facebook page.

    Probably worth a run up to check it out.

    Visited a few on a recent trip up and across the Dales, all good except the "Penny Garth" in Hawes. The worst coffee of our trip by a good few country miles...

    The really good :-

    Meadowside Cafe, Dent (park in car park just up road and walk to it)

    Manor Cafe, Leyburn (proper biker cafe and getting very popular)

    Abbey Tea Rooms, near Bolton Abbey

    Went here yesterday for the first time, nice little cafe and a good bacon buttie. Some great surrounding roads to check out and wonderful scenery.
