Was told, "sorry, we are fully booked and not a single table available". When I queried this I was told, "we only accept pre-bookings now". Subtext "...because we are so successful.........". Seemed an odd thing to say to a customer who has popped in several times whilst visiting Bahnstormers. Oh yes, they do have a stern warning outside saying their car park must not be used by Bahnstormer customers, so I'm not sure the neighbours are "friendly".

    Bit of a shame as Faringdon is already a one-horse place by the look of it.....
    Well fuck them then.

    We went to Loomies, very nice breakfast bap. Good choice of food. Rode back to Cardiff with mate grinning like a Cheshire Cat on his XR.

    Never go to Loomies unless you want to shit through the eye of a needle for the rest of the day, it is a fucking dump.

    The Departure Lounge is nice and Lasham Airfield probably the pick of the bunch, plus you get to stand right next too the grass runway and watch the gliders being winched, towed and landing. Good crowd at both.

    I don't understand what the attraction is with Loomies. The food is utter shit, and the place is full of reprobates most of the time.

    My Wife and I parked there in the past, hopped over to Bahnstormer, not had an issue. Food is very good indeed. Loomies is a biker cafe, a bit like Ace Cafe in London. Not my scene personally, but liked by many. If Loomies is closed, then try a pub (can't remember the name) diagnaly (the other side of traffic lights) over the road.

    Beware of the cops and camera vans on that stretch and many other roads about. it is a popular biker playground, including BVG.
    All the best.....

    Parking is free for pub customers.
    Why would you expect them to encourage the business next door to fill their car park rather than their own customers ?

    Your standards must be low.

    The attraction is a complete lack of quality in any of the food on offer.
    And even the most basic of food is appallingly cooked.

    I wouldn't. I was simply providing information.
