    Stonehenge, whilst there is not a greasy spoon. There is a coffee / sandwhich / cake stop & there is no indoor seating, but taking the back roads makes it a good ride.

    Gorge Cafe

    ... An e-mail from a local mate just reminded me of (hope it's still open): -

    Gorge Cafe, 277 Caversham Road, Reading

    ... South side of Caversham bridge on the roundabout. Parking at the side

    ... Proper grub, greasy, calorific and cholesterol laden

    Monday is the day for meeting there from about 6pm onwards. I have been there on the GS a couple of times, and it did seem to be rice rockets everywhere.

    Gorge Cafe still there, sculptured ceiling and all. They do quite a choice these days but the full breaky is best.

    Blades Cafe at Northleach, just off A40/A429

    Just outside your area in Northleach, but they like bikers and these is plenty of parking and great food / drinks.

    Enjoy
