Every now and then we receive emails from readers on their favourite place to stop on a ride. We published our own list of best brews a while back. Here is an addendum.
Loomies, Winchester, Hampshire
“You need to ride out to Loomies on a weekend along the A272 from Winchester and then back along the A32 towards Alton and on to Basingstoke. Brilliant roads and Jane at Loomies is just the greatest character you will ever meet.” (Ian)
H Cafe, Dorchester on Thames, Oxfordshire
“H Cafe is another family owned business that seems to have been there for ever and a day. A very friendly place where bikers of all shapes, sizes and types gather for a greasy breakfast, cup of tea and a chat. Highly recommended.” (Ian again)
“I would heartily recommend …Dom’s Bike Stop, just outside Leominster, on the A44 towards Worcester.
It’s a wonderful oasis offering a friendly welcome and the most amazing bacon and sausage sarnies from their own home-grown free range pigs. Check out their Facebook page, but check before you head out whether they’re going to be open!” (John)
“The bike meet is held on Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm and is also open 7 days a week 10am-4pm.
We welcome all bikers and bike enthusiasts, of all motorcycle types and engine sizes.
Come join us, it’s a beautiful ride out to get here, with a warm welcome when you arrive and fresh food, hot & cold drinks, inside and outside seating areas and hard standing parking.
Whilst having your food & cuppas, you can feel good, knowing you are helping to contribute to the costs of running the Animal sanctuary.” (Lorraine)
