    Right in centre. If you are coming from the Pershore side there is an island after you have crossed the bridge. Turn left there ( its a little one way square) carry on down the left hand side between some houses and head for the river/ferry.
    Cafe is called Raphaels.

    Can recommend the sunday carvery to

    Follow the signs in the centre of the town towards Hampton Ferry, go down the track, cafe is on the right just before you get to the ferry.

    I was there yesterday afternoon actually, eating a rather large portion of the afore mention bread pudding.

    Sorry, but if it hasn't got wheels, or a pair of tits or if its not covered in chocolate, then quite frankly, I'm not really that interested.....

    I'm a fiddler, I like to turn screws just because they are there.

    Ma Larkins, Chipping Norton.

    Slightly out of area, but well worth a visit whilst riding the Cotswolds.

    Full of bikers on Sunday morning

    Situated on the junction of the A44 and the A361, just NE of Chipping Norton

    Route 44 Cafe, Bringsty Common

    I think this has closed down. I heard a rumour a fews months ago the place might be on the market and when I rocked up this week it was not only closed but everything was very securely padlocked up.

    I'll be passing by again soon and will keep an eye on it.

    Its on the out-skirts of our area, but I think the food there is well worth it...
    The Plough inn at Little Broughton on the Banbury to Southam Main road, George and Sam there are fantastic fun and the food is out of this world all home made..... Yum Yum
    Also there is 'The Diner' at Long Itchington just out side Southam on the Coventry road, good for an all day breakfast and a nice cuppa, welcomes bikers, even has a Thursday night meet in the summer............... if you wanna see lots of sports bikes......... (I give this a day a miss )

    Ma Larkins, Chipping Norton

    Paid a visit there yesterday, freezing cold, really looking forward to a brew.... but it was CLOSED and looked as though it had been for some time, no furniture inside but all the signs are still up. One to watch in case it re-opens

    Route 44 at Bringsty definitely closed for the foreseeable future. However, about half mile further up the hill towards Bromyard, on the left, is the Live and Let Live inn - recently restored. Tiny place on the hillside (definitely a bit of gravel to get to it!) that does good local beer.

    Same question for the Riverside Cafe at Evesham.

    I popped in there midweek at mid morning a couple of weeks ago and there wasn't much sign of life. Definitely closed - what I could tell was whether it was permanent or whether they only opened certain days of the week and I was just unlucky.

    Ombersley Wines and Delicatessen

    On the main road through Ombersley near the island. They do freshly made rolls with anything from the delicatessen counter and great coffee (freshly ground).



    If you fancy a sausage, bacon and black pudding bap, pop next door to Checketts the butchers. When I go down to collect our meat on a Saturday morning I inevitably end up with one! They also do pretty good coffee but there's nowhere to sit.
