Espresso Barn, Long Marston

Decent venue, caters well for cyclists-a little pricey, but good quality

The Larch Barn, Been Savage https://www.thelarchbarn.co.uk/

Been open about a year, was going to go to the Cleobury cafe, but this was a good alternative. Seemed to be plenty of room, including lots of outdoor picnic benches. Great views of Clee Hill and a decent menu (if slightly on the pricey side)

They recommended booking ahead as a popular stop with other cycling clubs

The Old Priest House, Address: 0AA, 2 Vicarage Ln, Audlem, Crewe CW3 0AB
Hours: 10:00-17:00 Weds - Sun

Cracking Cafe although slightly small. £4ish for double beans / cheese / egg on toast, and £7 for a 7 options english breakfast, £7 for a 10 option mega breakfast. Nice and warm inside with great breakfasts as well as oatcakes. Just next door to Audlem Cyclosport (which is closed on Sunday unfortunately).

Pop into gilks garage cafe on the edge of Kineton, the other day. Good food and cycle friendly.

Worth a summer club run maybe.

Just visited The View café at Hill Farm Marina which is about half a mile south of Wootton Wawen on the A3400. Very good and reasonable prices.

This is an ex-cafe suggestion for a venue used on previous club runs.

Ombersley Farm Shop and Cafe burnt down last night, so no longer available unless you like eating over done toast.

Having done a bit of browsing on the Cycling Cafés Map, I decided to go to a previously unvisited café today: The Orchard Tea Room/The Scrumpy House Restaurant at Weston's Cider Mill near Much Marcle.

It was really good: lots of indoor and outdoor seating, nice food, reasonable prices, scenic location served by an excellent lane network. One obvious drawback: it's too far for a standard club run. Minimum round-trip distance is roughly 100 miles; scenic route options are likely to be more. However, those distances are doable in the context of an all-day summer club run, and it's potentially useful for anyone riding to or from the Brecon Beacons or other places in that general direction. I'm minded to lead an all day B run down there myself, but I'm busy the next couple of weekends and by the time we get to November it's probably too late... maybe next year, therefore.
