    Biker friendly tea rooms please

    Can anyone recommend any tea rooms along the way of some nice roads.... seeing as the "Doris" is addicted to tea and teacakes/scones, I thought I would keep my pillion happy with a few stops for refreshments and those "I need a wee" moments

    When you say 'Doris',are you referring to your good lady,or to the eloquent wit that is the self-appointed keeper of the gate in the HD section ?

    And I thought a coal eating, rolled up newspaper living, greyhound abusing, eckythump, put wood in t'hole, flat cap, pipe smoking, LS Lowry, down t' pit, hobnail clog wearing, buggers grips sporting, real ale supping Yorkshireman would beat a man to death for simply uttering a word like tearoom

    Ahh, How times have changed

    Why does it have to be bike friendly? And what is bike friendly?

    some people seem to be attached to the notion that motorcyclists are badass rather than the reality of being mostly affluent, middle class, bloated, baby boomers
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    Exactly................anything 'bike friendly' I normally avoid avoid and the food will always be fried shite

    Whereas your quintessential english tea room will serve decent, usually homemade food

    My mate always looks for bike friendly accommodation, but wonders why I couldn't care less if they are bike friendly or not. I dont see what difference it makes.

    Strange & I've met him

    As long as they have some parking arrangements - anywhere is good

    My experience from our last trip to UK was the Spa Tea Room at Hovingham in Yorkshire. On the B1257 near Castle Howard. Great place! They have their own bakery and make some superb bread and scones.

    One of my favourites, their bread and cakes are some of the finest in Yorkshire

    Simon is a master chef, turned baker and his cooking is superb

    Pretty location too, in the estate village of the Worsley family
