    The cafe at Barbury Castle car park, located on the ridgeway so you can ride on or off road to it. Perfect:

    Blockley Village shop (Glos), pro biker

    Hi.

    http://blockleyshop.com/

    Went to this place and asked about Bikers rolling up, very pro manager, Chris.

    Due to location of the shop, parking a bike would be a tad trying if there were more than 4 of you, but don't let that put you off.

    Regards

    MG

    Hill Top Diner

    Tried this place on Saturday. Its on the A 30 between salisbury and Stockbridge. Nicely placed for Salisbury plain.

    Proper diner, with good food and a big pot of tea. When I mentioned I would put a post on here he volunteered to open specially for groups of five or more. I thought that was generous.

    More info here.

    Chaps,

    As motorcyclists we are often looking for a place to stop, have a cuppa, & often a bacon roll, or similar.

    If you haven't been there already, you might like to investigate the Stables cafe at Saul Junction, near Gloucester

    http://www.thestablescafe.co.uk/

    It's owned by a young couple, Mitch & Carla, & they are certainly not afraid of hard work, as the photos of the restoration on the website will confirm.

    They've had some bad luck lately. December wasn't exactly busy, if you remember all that snow, & then in January they closed & spent several weeks re-decorating the premises, ready for the new season.

    Unfortunately, just as the season started, they suffered a fire. They were lucky that thanks to prompt Fire Service action it didn't burn to the ground, but all their hard work redecorating was undone with smoke damage. Their insurance company was also slow in responding, so they will have lost the best part of a month.

    However, they are a resourceful & cheerful pair, & have just reopened, so if in the coming weeks you fancy a cuppa, at a cafe in a lovely location, then make your way down to Saul Junction, & tell them "BikeSafe" sent you !

    Regards,

    Had a 'Full English' breakfast there last Sunday - 'twas very good too!

    I was there at 10a.m. when they opened, and reckon there were around ten peeps there at the same time. 30 minutes later new arrivals were being told to expect a 30-40 minute wait for their order....

    Good breakfast & a nice location

    p.s. The location map on their web-site makes it easy to find.
