    Wymondham Windmill

    Can recommend the Wymonham Windmill cafe. North of Rutland Water and East of Melton Mowbray.

    Good homemade food and very welcoming to bikers. Will even open up another room if you are a big group and forewarn them.

    I went there last week for a cuppa and a teacake. It's a great place. (and it's near some green lanes)

    I see the excellent Salt Box Cafe on the edge of Hatton is now open on Sundays.

    Rode from Sheffield to Sandbach/Congleton to get a new front tyre and HID light upgrade and whilst en-route I dined at the Coach House fish & chip restaurant in Buxton. Nice food & easy parking, can even keep your eye on the bike whilst eating...

    Came across this place yesterday and popped in for a coffee. Not a huge cafe and not a wide choice but they use there own piggy wiggys for bacon and sausage rolls. But it was there scotch eggs that make it worth a visit......might even organise a scotch egg run sometime.
    And they even have a yurt with a log burner and comfy chairs for the wussies.
