    Jordons Coffe shop on the way out of Marazion towards Longrock. Its a pay and display Car park, but bikes as free. The local bike schools use it as a snack/lunch spot so usually good for a natter. Also has good views of Mounts bay and St Micheals mount.

    I enjoy a ride out to Home Farm, Tarrant Gunville, Dorset, (near Blandford) who make a superb breakfast http://www.homefarmshop.co.uk/ , another good cafe for breakfast or lunch is the Hiker Cafe at Hengistbury Head, near Christchurch, Dorset http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/10326 the place has been somewhat modernised since the web picture was taken, motorcycles can park in the car park close to the cafe for free.

    Shearwater cafe, great food and right next to the lake.

    From Warminster, take the A350 towards Blandford. Turn right into Crockerton village and the tearoom is one mile from the main road on the edge of Longleat forest and Lake Shearwater.

    Lake Shearwater
    Crockerton
    Warminster

    Tel: +44 01985 213255

    Also-

    Mangerton Mill, fantastic location watch out for the chickens wondering about!
    Working water mill with a tearoom, and fishing lake to walk around.

    From Bridport take the A3066, then look out for Gore Lane on the right then at the end of Gore Lane turn left into Mangerton Lane and then follow this lane and the mill is on the left down a little gravel track.
    Look out for Brown Tourist signs these will help

    Try the Compton Abbas airfield near Shaftsbury on the side road heading down to Blandford high upon the hill nice views and you may be lucky to see an aerobatic display as well.On the B3081 through Melbury Abbas,usually stop there on way down to Poole bike nights.

    Greedies on Filton Avenue in Bristol.
    Hungry Horace (NOT Horse) on Speedwell Road, Bristol.

    Both of these places do the biggest builders breakfasts you can imagine. chips, sausages, bacon, 2 eggs, beans, mushrooms, waffles, tomatoes, fried bread and toast plus tea with as many top-ups as you like.

    Its not gourmet organic food but it is mountainous. Its the kind of thing you can only justify once a year or so due to the artery clogging properties of it.

    However my favourite greasy spoons of all is my house! We get eggs, sausages and bacon from Model Farm in Ross On Wye and the missus cooks up a storm in the kitchen.

    She has a GS650 and myself a GS1150A so we will have to get some fellow tossers round to join us some time!

    Brunel Buttery on the Bristol docks is also good.

    Also if you get off the M4 at the Bath junction but go the opposite direction to Bath (heading towards Stroud) right there on the left in the parking area is a guy who does good fry ups. However its always a gamble as to whether he is there - its usually just the mornings.

    The box said "Windows 10 or better."
